Georgetown Cupcake - English Christmas Cupcake
In addition to the usual holiday offerings at Georgetown Cupcake, they introduced two new flavors this season- one of them being English Christmas. This cupcake is "Georgetown Cupcake’s version of the traditional English Christmas spice cake, baked with fresh cranberries and orange zest and topped with classic vanilla cream cheese frosting and a fondant holly leaf".
As you can see from the cross-section of the cupcake, there are lots of cranberries (and orange zest, if you look closely) throughout. Although I can't say that this is a favorite of mine given my general dislike of fruit desserts, I actually liked the cranberries which added some tartness to the cake. Fortunately, this tastes nothing like a dreaded fruitcake, haha. It's a very pretty addition to the holiday lineup!
