Fast forward to now. I was walking in SoHo with my brother recently and walked past a Georgetown Cupcake. Apparently they just opened a location in NYC. Remembering the show and how they didn't normally offer GF cupcakes, I didn't bother going in. A few days later I happened to read somewhere that Georgetown cupcakes does in fact offer a GF flavor: Gluten Free Lava Fudge. Clearly, I had to try it.
Coincidentally, I was back in SoHo with my brother on Monday. It was his half birthday (yes, that's a thing) and we decided we needed some cake. A perfect time to try Georgetown Cupcake! Let me tell you, the store is adorable and the gluten free cupcake was amazing. Not only was it amazing (top 3 GF cupcakes I've ever tried), but the staff was so considerate. They asked if I was ordering the GF because of an allergy. When I confirmed that I was they changed their gloves before handling it and put it in a separate box than my brother's. Between the cute shop, the delicious cupcake, and the conscientious handling of my cupcake, these people win big time. Go try them. Immediately.
