Moet and cupcakes. Cupcakes and Moet. And lots and lots of pink. It’s a girly paradise, the place you want to meet with your friends to catch up over a fancy latte and a cupcake or six. It’s Boston’s brand new cupcake shop, Georgetown Cupcake Newbury, brought to you by the ladies from the original Georgetown Cupcake and the TLC show DC Cupcakes, and it is fabulous. It would be the perfect place to stop with a bridal party or baby shower or just with a group of girlfriends as I did last Thursday.
What’s even more fabulous is attending a cupcake party with friends on a sunny Thursday evening. I had plans to meet Megan, Elizabeth, Bianca, and Emily at Georgetown Cupcake and also ran into Fiona and Melissa. It was a packed house with a huge turnout to welcome Katherine and Sophie to Boston. They, in turn, provided us with nonstop deliciousness.
First, lets starts with the Georgetown Cupcake Newbury space. Located at 83 Newbury Street, the cupcake shop is a long, narrow space decorated with lots of pink and pretty things, like this crystal-encrusted Kitchenaid mixer.
Sophie and Katherine greeted us at the door, dressed to go with the décor of their beautiful new shop. They were absolutely lovely.
Once inside, a display of beautiful cupcakes also greeted us.
Along with servers offering glasses of Moet. . .
And a bustling staff making sure the cupcakes kept coming. We got to go right back into the kitchen to see the behind-the-scenes action. Once we took a little tour, we headed back down to the party to mingle and, more importantly, eat cupcakes.
As you can see, the pink lighting adds a soft glow to the entire space. It made for a great location for an event and made for some interesting food photos!
Ready, set, go! Once the cupcakes started coming, they didn’t really stop. Here we have chocolate coconut and salted caramel. The chocolate coconut, with a cream cheese frosting topped with a generous amount of shredded coconut, is definitely a new favorite for me.
My other favorite of the evening was the chocolate peanut butter. We also sampled chocolate and Boston creme,
And cookies and cream.
After we’d sampled our fair share of mini cupcakes (Definitely go with friends so you can have lots of small bites!), we made our way through the crowds and out to the door, where Georgetown Cupcake made sure we didn’t leave empty-handed.
The swag bags were amazing, stocked with a hat, t-shirt, mug, travel mug, a copy of The Cupcake Diaries AND a gift card for a dozen cupcakes. Oh yeah, and the half dozen cupcakes we were all gifted on the way out. Sweet!
The gift bag was so generous, in fact, that I thought it would be a shame to keep it all to myself. Since I can’t ship you cupcakes (um, and I have already eaten them), I am giving one lucky ready my copy of The Cupcake Diaries.
To enter, just leave a comment letting me know what your favorite cupcake combo is. If you’ve been to Georgetown Cupcakes, give them a shout out too!
I’ll choose a winner on Friday; good luck!
And so many thanks to Georgetown Cupcakes
