New cupcakery! Red Velvet Cupcake

Just read on Delleicious DC's blog that a NEW CUPCAKERY is opening this month in DC -- Welcome to town, Red Velvet Cupcakery!

Red Velvet is opening in the hot restaurant area of Penn Quarter at 675 E St NW (corner of 7th and E). For $3.25, you can sample one of their eight current flavors:
  • Vanilla bean -- vanilla bean cake, madagascar bourbon vanilla frosting
  • Devil's food -- chocolate-buttermilk cake, bittersweet chocolate ganache
  • B-day -- american yellow butter cake, milk chocolate ganache
  • Key West -- key lime cake, white chocolate buttercream
  • Peanut Butter Cup -- chocolate chocolate-chip cake, salted peanut butter frosting
  • Southern Belle -- red velvet cake, whipped cream cheese frosting
  • Morning call -- chocolate espresso cake, mocho buttercream
  • Summertime -- lemon cake, coconut frosting

Fun fact: Owner Canada Gordon is brother to the owner of TangySweet (a part of the other big trend in DC right now -- frozen yogurt!).

Perhaps a holiday treat for that special someone...?

We've been hearing so much about all of D.C.'s crazy cupcakes spots. We thought LA was overrun; looks like D.C. is giving us a run for the money! :) We'd love to do a taste test!
