Carrot + (Free) Cinnamon
In my quest to try just about every flavor of Georgetown Cupcake's offerings, I picked up a Carrot cupcake on my way to snag the free Cinnamon one being offered that day.
I have to admit I wasn't super excited about the Carrot - I've had Carrot cake a few times before, and never liked it at all. I have to admit, I was v. pleasantly surprised by this cupcake. It was moist, with v. tiny shards of carrot inside, no raisins (woo!), and went well with the cream cheese-based frosting. And how could you not love the cute carrot fondant topping? Would I get it again, probably not- but will I trash-talk it like I have with previous Carrot cakes? No, no I will not :o)
Now the Cinnamon...oooooh the Cinnamon. I already thought that this would be a good one, but it was even more than what I expected. It seemed like a regular vanilla cake, but the top of the cupcake (under the frosting) was cracked and covered with cinnamon sugar, just like a Snickerdoodle cookie!! It was even crunchy like a Snickerdoodle cookie, so so awesome. That plus the fluffy cinnamon frosting was just so so so so good! I really wish they'd put this on the regular menu, I think a lot of people would like it!
