I’ve been a fan of Georgetown cupcakes for a while, mostly because they’re a great stop on my day trips down M Street and because I love the cute fondant and the inventive flavors. Up until now, Georgetown Cupcake trumped them all, then came Lilly Magilly’s Cup Cakery. It’s a smaller selection in a quaint, cute little bakery in Gaithersburg so I never expected to find the moistest chocolate raspberry cupcake I’ve ever had. Held in an upside down Solo cup (the play on the word ‘cupcake’ wasn’t lost on me) with the trademark Lilly Magilly logo was a moist, delectable chocolate cake that had the perfect amount of sweetness topped with a simple fresh raspberry and yummy raspberry icing. While my sister indulged in a snicker doodle cupcake that was more for anyone with a real sweet tooth, I took my dear, sweet time tasting each of the simply delicious flavors that my new favorite DC Metro Area cup cakery put together in one little treat. The combination of chocolate and raspberry melted together in my mouth so harmoniously with a flavor jolt that shot through my veins unlike any other sugar high I’ve experienced. I have one word to describe Lilly Magilly’s Cup Cakery – Yum!
Cupcakes are $2.75 each, which seems to be becoming the standard price for these mini cakes these days.
