I am particularly excited about going at the end of the month - according to the Shake Shack calendar, the "Golden Sponge Cake" looks a lot like Twinkies... haha!

Georgetown Cupcake - Chocolate Cherry Cupcake



Sooooo... cherry.... yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  Part of me wanted to just convince myself that it's a Red Velvet (they do look identical to me), but the cherry flavor won out in the end for this Chocolate Cherry cupcake from Georgetown Cupcake.  The chocolate base is studded with cherry pieces, and topped with their regular vanilla frosting.  If I actually liked cherries, I'm sure this would be a fantastic cupcake, since the other parts are all delicious on their own.  I can't say that I would go out of my way to buy this if it's ever on the menu, but I'm glad I got to try a new (to me) flavor!
