Our 13th wedding anniversary came and went without us really doing some kind of celebration – just yet. Not even a dinner. But I’m not complaining. I’m more than grateful that the day came and we were together that day.
A couple of weeks before our anniversary, my husband tried to get clues from me for possible anniv gift. His ‘fishing expedition’ however failed, so desperate as he was, he asked me pointblank what I want in the form of gift. I replied: “nothing, I already got the best gift”. I just made a request though. Call me shallow but I wanted a few pieces of Georgetown cupcakes.
I got more than just the cupcakes. My husband came home with a vase of peonies, etc. which he got from a nearby flower shop. I have to say, they smelled really good, unlike most roses that only look good and does not smell at all.
And, I got my wish – Georgetown cupcakes. The DC cupcake store in Soho opened in the winter of last year but we never had the chance to personally go.
The cupcakes however didn’t look good. Although the packaging was good, I suspect that the heat and humidity did a ‘number’ on the icing. Plus, my husband had to carry the flowers too. They tasted great and I think Georgetown cupcakes can give Sprinkles a stiff competition. Crumbs is now really out of the equation… for us. I can’t wait to get my hands on another batch of Georgetown cupcakes hopefully, they’ll be intact, no icing falling off.
