It would not be a lie to say I have a huge sweet tooth. However, I try not to give into the bigger things (other than those "degustation de patisseries" moments). Most nights, I'll end with some chocolate (a square or two) or yogurt... I eat a lot of greek yogurt with honey. I read too much bad stuff about the effect of sugar on your body and guilt myself out of certain things. Furthermore, if I do give in, then I want the treat to be TOTALLY worth it. Cupcakes are hardly my favorite dessert but I like to try them sometimes. The best cupcake I've ever had (then again, I haven't had that many) was most certainly, without a doubt the salted caramel one from Georgetown Cupcakes in Bethesda. I had that one more recently than I had the cupcakes from Sweet Cupcakes in Boston so I'm having a very hard time recalling my feelings that day. I know that I enjoyed them and it was very hard to choose. If I remember well, we tried a caramel brownie one and a pumpkin one... because, hello, pumpkin obsessed woman right here. It was a very sunny Sunday afternoon and we were the only ones there for a long time. The place was very cute and girly and a nice place to sit and enjoy a treat while shopping on Newbury street (Madewell!).
Let me know if you ever make it there and what cupcake you try!
