Georgetown Cupcake - NY Pinstripe Pretzel + Boston Green Monstah Cupcakes
A few weeks ago, Georgetown Cupcake pitted the NY Yankees and Boston Red Sox against each other, which is nothing new, but this was way more tasty than a baseball game, haha. Both flavors of cupcakes were sold at all Georgetown Cupcake locations, with the proceeds going to two charities. Since I don't really have a preference for one team over another, it made it easier to just buy both, haha.
Here we have the NY Pinstripe Pretzel: Chocolate cupcake baked with gourmet butterscotch chips and crushed pretzel and topped with a butterscotch-infused buttercream frosting. As you can see there's a ton of butterscotch chips in the one I got - not so much pretzel pieces. This was incredibly sweet, I think mainly due to the butterscotch buttercream frosting, but a fun cupcake nonetheless.
And here is the Boston Green Monstah: Green velvet cupcake topped with green vanilla cream cheese frosting and baseball fondant decorations. Essentially, a red velvet cupcake that was bright green instead of red, haha. Being a fan of their red velvet to begin with, clearly I enjoyed this one as well.
