This. Although B&W can get busy too, it's nothing like Georgetown Cupcake.

Honestly they suck, you can go to Reston Town Center's Red Velvet Cupcakes and they are much better than GT cupcakes. I can't believe there was a line around the block in this heat for GT cupcakes, people are insane! Ok, they do not suck but seriously the hype is just BS..

It's a *$&%@ cupcake! You can make just as good a cupcake yourself or go to the supermarket and get cupcakes as good. Those Georgetown Cupcakes are just marketing ploys to draw in yuppies.

Totally agreeing with all comments. Its a tourist attraction because of the show.Thats all. No cupcake is worth 3 dollars. A box of Duncan Hines is 5 bucks and you can make 2 dozen from one box. Please. They play too much. LOL

Yep, it is more rewarding to make your own cupcakes (I'm fond of the rainbow chip frosting), but if you don't have the time or energy to make your own, I agree that Baked & Wired is the place to go. The cupcakes are bigger and the service is friendlier.

We wanted to see what all the hype was about and went and ordered about two dozen cupcakes of various flavors. Honestly, the majority of them were just average cupcakes. Only a few stood out as being "WOW". There was a very light lemon one, a white cococonut topped one and a toffee crunch one that really stood out in all of our opinions. The chocolate ones were alright, but kind of overwhelmingly sweet (and I love chocolate).

For people who love cupcakes (or cake in general), the box mixes do not compare to bakery products. So it's not as simple as just making your own at home. However, $3 a cupcake is a pretty steep price to pay ANYWHERE for an average size cupcake.

So, my opinion is that no, Georgetown Cupcakes is not worth the hype, but it's a fun trip to make to have 'been there, done that' or to take friends or relatives from out of town. And if you do go, order the Toffee crunch cupcake!

What's with all the negative comments i haven't tried one but they look amazing and i have heard pretty good things about them. They use good quality ingredients and there must be some reason that people keep going back ................ :-)

I think once again, another establishment has lost quality due to hype. I remember the first time I had one of their cupcakes was over 2 years ago. It was a co-workers bday and his GF ordered a dozen. I never had such a good cupcake before. But this was during the earlier years of the cupcake-craze.

I went their yesterday, because there was only a short (less than 15 minutes) wait, and I had an out-of-town visitor. I order the red velvet and vanilla w/chocolate frosting. I was disappointed. the cupcake wasn't as moist, and the flavor was bland. I was really expecting more. Now I think it's ALL hype now. Aren't they building a Sprinkles down the road from GC?

I used to enjoy the variety of flavors that they offer but the cake itself isn't vry good. You can get better cupcakes from Shoppers.

I will admit I loooove Curbside Cupcakes. They don't have as many flavors on a consistent basis but the cupcakes are sooo moist.
