Nowadays, when people want to buy me gifts, they think of food. An early Christmas present from a friend just happened to be a Christmas mix dozen from my all time favorite cupcake shop, Georgetown Cupcake. I gathered up the some of the Valley Forge Spoonies and we tasted and reviewed all of them for you. (Yes, we ate a dozen cupcakes in one sitting.)

1. Chocolate Eggnog

Blaine Cooper

Valrhona chocolate eggnog cupcake topped with a (non-alcoholic) rum-infused frosting, a dusting of nutmeg and a light blue fondant snowflake.

Jenette, Blaine and I are not fans of eggnog, so we opted out of this first cupcake.

Nicole - The nutmeg makes it a little spicy, but I love the cream cheese frosting. I did want more flavor from cake.

Our rating: 3/5

2. Sticky Toffee Pudding

Blaine Cooper

Toffee cupcake with a caramel core, topped with a toffee-infused frosting, and a caramel star drizzle and fondant holly.

Jenette - I thought best part was the frosting.

Blaine - P good. 

Cailin - I have experience with Georgetown Cupcakes, so I know their cakes with cores are a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

Nicole - LOVE CORE.

Our rating: 3/5

3. Snowball Coconut

Blaine Cooper

Georgetown Cupcake's holiday inspired coconut cupcake topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting and coconut flakes.

Jenette - Opted out.

Blaine - nOPE.

Cailin - The flakes were way too much. They ended up all over the box.

Nicole - It’s a lot of coconut flavor in the icing, but the cake was good. It had a more subtle flavor and the perfect texture.

Our rating: 2/5

4. Gingerbread

Blaine Cooper

Gingerbread cupcake topped with a cinnamon-infused cream cheese frosting and a fondant gingerbread man.

Jenette - I loved fondant flavor, but the cake could be better.

Blaine - Opted out.

Cailin - The flavor was better than I was expecting. The gingerbread wasn't too spicy and frosting balanced it perfectly.

Nicole - Amazing!

Our rating: 4.75/5

5. Chocolate Peppermint

Blaine Cooper

Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a peppermint-infused whipped Callebaut chocolate ganache frosting topped with crushed peppermint.

Jenette - Not really into the dark chocolate, but it paired well with the peppermint. The cakes was dry.

Blaine - Oh my god. (Editor's Note: Not really sure if this was good or bad.)

Cailin - The cake was super dense, but I liked it. The flavor was rich.

Nicole - It needed more peppermint, and I was not expecting the chocolate to be dark chocolate. The cake was too thick.

Our rating: 2.5/5

6. White Chocolate Peppermint

Blaine Cooper

White Callebaut chocolate peppermint-infused cupcake topped with a candy-cane striped white chocolate peppermint buttercream frosting.

Nicole and I aren't into white chocolate at all, so we oped out. 

Jenette - This one was much lighter. I liked it better than its dark chocolate counter part.

Blaine - I would eat again.

Our rating: 4/5

7. Santa’s Chocolate Chip

Blaine Cooper

Vanilla chocolate chip cupcake with a whipped Callebaut chocolate frosting topped with a fondant snowflake.

Jenette - The icing was too dense; it would have been better with a fluffier icing.

Blaine - Too dense and too bitter.

Cailin - This would have been better with a plain vanilla cake. 

Nicole - This flavor didn't really fit in with the Christmas mix.

Our rating: 2.75/5

8. Holiday Lava Fudge

Blaine Cooper

Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a rich fudge core topped with a vanilla icing, a fudge star drizzle, and a green fondant Christmas tree.

Jenette - Best one yet.

Blaine - This felt like a milkshake and loved blend of flavors not sure but I’d buy it.

Cailin - I LOVE CORE.

Nicole - Love it all.

Our rating: 4/5

9. Christmas Caramel

Blaine Cooper

Caramel cupcake with a salted caramel-infused buttercream frosting topped with a caramel drizzle and a green fondant Christmas tree.

Jenette - This flavor was sweet and familiar. If I lived near a Georgetown Cupcake shop, this would be one of my staples.

Blaine - I liked it a lot but it was not my favorite.

Cailin - Too sweet.

Nicole - The caramel sauce hit the back of my throat and I choked.

Our rating: 2.4/5

10. Snowy Vanilla & Buttercream

Blaine Cooper

Classic Madagascar vanilla cupcake topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting, sparkling sanding sugar, and a shimmering light blue fondant snowflake.

Jenette - Basic.

Blaine - Right up my alley.

Cailin - Good take on the classic, Georgetown never disappoints.

Nicole - I like this light icing with the density of a simple flavored cake.

Our rating: 4/5

11. Rudolph Red Velvet

Blaine Cooper

Classic red velvet cupcake with a vanilla cream cheese frosting topped with a fondant red-nosed reindeer.

Jenette - I was pretty underwhelmed this. 

Cailin - Nothing special about this.

Blaine - Looked better than it tasted.

Nicole - Opted out.

Our rating: 2.75/5

12. Christmas Butterscotch Cheesecake

Blaine Cooper

Callebaut butterscotch cheesecake with a graham cracker crust topped with a butterscotch frosting and fondant holly.

Jenette - I l like everything about it, but I am so full.

Blaine - Good... I wish we hadn't eaten it last.

Cailin - Their cheesecake cupcakes are the best. I love the bottom, it was a super buttery graham cracker crust.

Nicole - I love the cheesecake from here, but not the flavors of this one.

Our rating: 4.25/5

Should you try this?

   Twelve cupcakes split four ways evens out to three a person, but we still felt the effects before we could get through the dozen. New Year's cleanses started a little early for Spoon Valley Forge after this...

   Georgetown Cupcake makes amazing cupcakes, so YES you should try them. Their ingredients are quality, which makes their flavors incredible. Their classics are good and their creative flavors are even better. These cakes were shipped overnight in an insulated box with ice packs and they somehow tasted bakery fresh. Georgetown Cupcakes never disappoints. Buy a dozen or two for your Christmas parties! These cupcakes are worth it. Unlike us, you should probably only eat one or two.
