Two fresh and summery flavors for you today, from Georgetown Cupcake: Orange Blossom, and a special free flavor that day, Coconut Key Lime. Once again, these specific flavors aren't exactly on my "Likes" list of life, but I bravely charged through these for the sake of trying every flavor- haha.
I will admit- for as much as I was assuming I'd hate these, they were v. fresh-tasting, unique, and "summer" in every way. First- the Orange Blossom. I don't have an issue with orange itself, I love oranges on their own. My problem is with most fruit + something flavors, particularly Creamsicles, which I expected this to be like. However, this was a good balance of fresh orange flavor with a hint of vanilla, so I enjoyed this one more than I expected. I love the little candied orange peel and the specks of zest in the frosting too, v. cute.
Now onto the Coconut Key Lime, the free off-the-menu cupcake for this particular day. I had expected a coconut cupcake with lime frosting, but they got all fanci-fied on this one :o) This turned out to be a coconut cupcake with a coconut and lime frosting, topped with both fresh and toasted coconut and a candy lime wedge. I can't say that I'm a fan of coconut just yet, but the few bites I had of this weren't so bad, haha. I loved the presentation, and how they really incorporated both components into the cucpake on the whole. If you're a fan of coconut and/or lime, this would be fantastic- and for your sake, I hope they have it again soon!
