  1. I saw on Delleicious that Bakeshop DC is opening in Clarendon in the spring. Also here's the news on Bakeshop DC's website. The website says their cupcakes and cookies are available at Murky's. How are they?
  2. I confess. I love cupcakes. I especially love cupcakes from Magnolia in New York. I know what everyone says that the cake is dry and the frosting is too sweet. They make me happy. I've been trooping to the tiny Bleecker and West 11th location of Magnolia since it opened in 1996. But it is a pain to get to, the hours are lousy and the staff isn't friendly on the best of days. So I discovered Billy's Bakery in Chelsea. The cupcakes taste the same, it isn't nearly as crowded and the staff is slightly warmer. And even in the midst of the DC Cupcake craze, I make a stop for cupcakes when I
  3. If one were going to open a cupcake and ice cream joint in DC, could there be a better location than the same block as 2Amy's and Cactus Cantina? Carved out of what used to be half of an antiques store on Macomb St., Something Sweet is the latest contestant in DC's cupcake pageant. It's brought to you by the same people behind Jetties in Foxhall and the still-humming-along Surfside in Glover Park. In addition to the cupcakes, they also serve ice cream, though I only tried the cupcakes yesterday. Given their location, Something Sweet could probably serve turdballs as their cupcakes and sti
  4. My queries aren't making the cut on Tom and Todd's respective chats, so I'll pose my question here: Where in the District can one find a good cupcake? And by good, you can presume that I don't mean the chilled, dry, overly-pasty-buttercream iced vareity sold up on U Street. I'm looking for bakeries, restaurants, or any other kind of retailer, provided they are in the District or are accessible by Metro. NYC has Magnolia, Baked, Billy's, Buttercup, Crumbs, Sugar Sweet Sunshine, and so many more. Surely we must have a hidden gem somewhere. Reference: New York Magazine on the NYC Cupcake War
  5. My vote goes to Baked & Wired on Thomas Jefferson Street - although you ought to call ahead if you want to be certain they have them in on any given day. You can also custom order them.
  6. The cupcake invasion continues...store signage has recently gone up for Hello Cupcake on Connecticut Ave (1351 Connecticut) just south of Dupont...at the SEIU building across from the Krispy Kreme.
  7. Article in the post today. Not only is he going to host a new show on Food Network, but he is expanding and opening up another Cakelove in Silver Spring. Had anyone had anything good from either of his current places lately? The last time I was there, many moons ago, I was unimpressed by the dry cupcakes with heavy frosting.
  8. There doesn't seem to be a thread yet on this cute pink cupcake truck. Their website is here. Link to their twitter page with updates on their location is here. Writeup in Washingtonian here. I haven't been in the same neighborhood yet to sample a cupcake. What do folks think of them?
  9. I'm surprised I couldn't find a forum for this place which I think has been there for years. Today was my first time actually tasting it though and it was great. I tried the cinnamon oatmeal cookie ice cream which tasted just like a cookie but instead opted for a scoop of my other taste cardamom almond. This basement place has a really nice selection of ultra cream ice creams in your usual flavors and some more unusual ones like the ones I tried. It isn't cheap though at $4.90 (with tax included) for one good sized scoop but it wa delish. They also have several types of fancy cupcakes, good
  10. The Sweetbites cupcake truck people have opened a bakery/cafe in McLean recently. They serve Illy coffee and had a nice variety of baked goods. The lemon bars, pina colada cupcakes and the double chocolate chip cookies were big hits. They now serve lunch items, but we have not tried them yet.
  11. The Karat Cakery food truck (@karatcakery) sells carrot cake, carrot cake cupcakes and ice cream with carrot cake. So if you don't like carrot cake, don't bother! If you do, however, the carrot cake cupcake with pecans is really divine. They put the cream cheese frosting on the cupcake right after you order it. The truck was at Farragut North yesterday (Wednesday) although I don't know their schedule.
  12. I don't post much on cupcakes since they're not really my thing. I'll laugh at even lame jokes about the cupcake explosion here and elsewhere. I'll nod appreciatively when people who know much more than I do about baking share why they appreciate cake, bread and the like more than cupcakes. All that aside though, I do have a passing interest in cupcake places for two main reasons aside from enjoying one very infrequently. 1. As small businesses with generally low overhead, I like that they offer opportunity for impassioned new food entrepreneurs to start a business and maybe succeed with it
  13. The cupcakes at Crumbs Bake Shop in Clarendon are so good it might be the most important thing to help Clarendon since first the car and then the Metro.
  14. There's a new cupcake place in Old Town Alexandria. Alexandria Cupcake at 1022 King Street (between Henry and Patrick St). The website says they opened this month. I haven't been - anyone tried it?
  15. For the 4th year I am organizing a charity event called CupcakeCampDC. This year we'll be benefiting Becky's Fund, a local non-profit organization that raises awareness about domestic violence. The event is a cupcake tasting event and we need bakers (and tasters, when we get more bakers!). There will be free cupcakes, $15 unlimited mimosas, live DJs, a judging competition, raffle prizes, a custom jewelry bar, and a silent auction. Come on out to the Brixton on October 5th for a good cause! VIP admission starts at 12 and General Admission starts at 1pm. (Baker check-in/setup is 11AM)
  16. I stopped into the Sweet Lobby one afternoon, because it was such an unassuming storefront -- in the sense of, you almost don't even notice it -- that I had to see what was going on. Turns out a brother and sister team from a francophone country* were peddling, in order of increasing interest to me, delightful-looking cupcakes, colorful and creative macarons, and beautiful, perfect madeleines. Raspberry-rose? Orange and ginger? Green tea pistachio? Yes, please, to all of those. (It's possible I've read too much Proust.) I haven't tried the cupcakes, which nonetheless look lovely -- not the be
  17. Hi Everyone! For the third year in a row, I'm hosting CupcakeCampDC. Basically it's a free event (with suggested donation of $5) where you can come and eat cupcakes. First year we had it as a free for all, which didn't work so well since people were bringing tupperware containers and hoarding cupcakes or taking one bite of every cupcake and throwing them away, while others didn't get to try any! Last year we adopted a system similar to "tasting events", where your donation gets you a certain number of tickets equal to that number of cupcakes and that seemed to work much better. This year
  18. Hey, this might be "why we are fat," but it looks like nothing short of a smart business move to me. (Functionally, what's the difference between this, and a grab-n-go sandwich from the refrigerator at Sweet Magnolia? Okay, the quality, but ... what about that *nasty* vending machine in south Adams-Morgan?)
