America's Best New Cupcakes

Slide 13 of 23

Georgetown Cupcake, Georgetown, Washington, DC

Founded by sisters Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, Georgetown Cupcake is a DC phenomenon that’s spawned a cookbook, TV show and five locations across the country. In addition to classic flavors that are available every day, like Chocolate Ganache, the bakery offers daily specials like Salted-Caramel Cupcake (an F&W editors’ favorite) on Saturdays and seasonal specialties like October’s Maple Walnut Crunch (walnut-and-maple-syrup cake topped with maple cream cheese frosting and crushed walnuts) and September’s Caramel Apple (apple cake with dulce de leche filling, a vanilla cream cheese frosting and a dulce de leche drizzle). “In the fall, we shop at the Dupont Circle market for Gala apples for our caramel-apple cupcakes,” says LaMontagne.
