Recently, I was exchanging emails with Suicide Blond about cupcakes. Basically, where to get them in DC? Are they yummy? and do they deliver? If I need cupcakes in a hurry, I know I can count on my local Lawson's Gourmet (which is RSVP Catering in disguise) to have them on hand, though not yummy. However, I've noticed that for special occasion cupcakes, well, other than Georgetown Cupcakes, my resources are quite limited. So lately, I've been on the lookout for new cupcake vendor resources. Suicide Blond introduced me to Couture Cupakes (yummy and they deliver). And one of my brides introduced me to Sprinkles Cupcakes (photo above). They're pretty delicious looking and pretty far away too. Although I did vote on their web site for their next location to be Washington, DC. But after visiting many, many cupcake vendor web sites and a few local bakeries, I've come to this conclusion: I like my cupcakes yummy and messy looking. This is why I love Cake Love and I love Cake Love's wedding cakes. They're not aiming for great design, just great cake.
