Georgetown Cupcakes in Boston!

Boston Cream

I attended the opening reception for a new Georgetown Cupcake at 83 Newbury Street in Boston.
This is the fourth location for sisters and co-owners, Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis Berman. You may recognize them from TLC's DC Cupcakes. They are also best-selling authors of The Cupcake Diaries: Recipes and Memories from the Sisters of Georgetown Cupcake. A beautifully written book paying tribute to those who have influenced the sisters in addition to sharing their true passion for cupcakes. I enjoyed reading about the giant pink bra they made with 2,000 cupcakes for a Susan G. Komen event. View pictures here to see the cupcake bra.

The opening event created quite a buzz and was filled with people within about fifteen minutes of the 6:00PM start time! Luckily my friend and I were able to find a spot up in the open kitchen area where delectable, meticulously decorated mini cupcakes were making there way out to the crowd. A couple of the GC cupcake crew entertained us while we scarfed down each cupcake. I asked what sets Georgetown Cupcake apart from the other cupcakeries? The response was that Georgetown Cupcake has exceptional customer service. Sounds good to me! It helps that the cupcakes are also exceptional.  

A happy crowd!

I had to be sure to sample each flavor.  Salted caramel, oreo cookie, red velvet with a to-die-for cream cheese frosting, boston cream, chocolate fudge, chocolate peanut butter, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla. I have to say that they were all delicious. Not too sweet and adorned with sugar flower charms. I am calling them charms because they were pretty enough to be worn as jewelry. Not only were they pretty, but they had flavor! The vanilla cupcake charms were vanilla flavored. This cupcake surpassed my expectations of what would be typically be an ordinary vanilla cupcake.

I was only at the opening party for 30 minutes and was able to sample each cupcake and while enjoying a couple of glasses of champagne in the midst of a massive crowd. The event was organized very well.  I think we can expect nothing but continued success at this Newbury Street location! Thank you, Sophie and Katherine for bringing Georgetown Cupcake to Boston! I look forward to sampling more. The menu offers over 100 cupcake flavors, including 18 flavors each day with a rotating weekly and monthly menu and a full espresso bar. They also ship nationwide. To celebrate the opening, Georgetown Cupcake Newbury will be giving out one FREE cupcake all day on Saturday, June 16th from 12PM-9PM. Be sure to stop by and get your cupcake(s)!
