There is no shortage of cupcake bakeries in the Washington, DC area, each with their own unique spin on the pint-size sweet. I, for one couldn’t be happier! I love cupcakes; they are the perfect mini-treat. Now, I know that many are over the cupcake craze, but I’m not and I hope that it is here to stay!
Cupcakes for weddings are a great alternative to traditional wedding cakes. I especially like that you can have lots of different and exotic cupcake flavors without having to commit to a whole cake. As an added bonus, cupcakes are often a more affordable wedding dessert or favor.
If you are skipping the wedding cake for your wedding in the DC area, here are four local spots (in no particular order).
Washington, DC (Dupont Circle)
Chevy Chase, MD
Washington, DC (Georgetown) and Bethesda, MD
Washington, DC (Cathedral area)
Red Velvet Cupcakery
Washington, DC (Penn Quarter and Dupont Circle)
I’ve personally been to all four DC area cupcake places (more than once, of course!), and I definitely have my favorite flavors, but to each his own, and I won’t spoil your cupcake tasting fun. After all, one of the best parts of planning a wedding is the food tasting!
