I had a date who dragged me to this place, and I was appalled at the line and the prices. I wanted to smack her for falling into the typical DC tourist trap (She's lived here for 20 years!), but it was her money, so hell yeah it tasted good.

Like a couple of posters, I prefer baked and wired. They have big, moist cupcakes; their cake/frosting combinations are a little strange at times, but still better than Georgetown in my opinion.

the cupcakes were very good. I do not know how they compare to other cheaper gourmet cupcakes, as that was the only time in my life I've ever had a gourmet cupcake.

The line was part of the experience. It was a nice evening, and we ended up chatting with people on the line.

Being someone who loves loves tourist traps and is always the first one to fall into them, I don't think Georgetown Cupcake is worth the hype. I don't find anything special about their cupcakes.

I like Georgetown cupcakes, but not the lines, which are now even more ridiculous than ever. I like the carrot cake and the lemon. If you live inside the beltway, you can have them delivered for $10, which is nice for parties.

However, my favorite cupcake place in DC is Hello Cupcake in Dupont. Better than GT cupcake, and hardly any waiting. The Velvet Elvis (banana cupcake with peanut butter frosting) is amazing.

Cakelove has always been disappointing to me, and Red Velvet is meh. The only cupcake from Curbside that is any good is the carrot.

My aunt took me on my recent trip home. We stood outside in the cold, but the line didn't take that long. The cupcakes were a little pricey, and rather small, but the icing alone made them well worth it!

LOL I felt the same way. I sort of got a kick out of the line, but the cupcake itself didn't live up to expectations.

You don't see them advertising their cupcakes as healthy, do you? Tons of butter and sugar will make anything tastes good, which is the case with the GTC.

But I like them. They're good and they make it look interesting.

I'm pretty sure I've had things with lots of butter and sugar that weren't nearly as good as the GTC cupcake I had.

That said, the cupcake I had from Crumbs in Clarendon was just as good, with no line. That makes a grand total of two gourmet cupcakes I've had in my life, so I don't think its going to be a huge health issue. I certainly don't see a lot of obese people in Georgetown or Clarendon, compared to some other places that lack gourmet cupcake shops
