Hello Cupcake

Well say goodbye to any hopes of holding down a diet this summer and hello to Hello Cupcake. Word has it that a new cupcake shop is opening up in Dupont Circle (across from the Krispy Kreme and just a block from my house..sigh).

I've been dieing for delicious cupcakes to come to my city and I guess I got my wish. Well the delicious part has yet to be seen but they look cute!

Oh and they are eco-friendly (check out the section on their packaging and their building...very detailed website which I love).

  1. oh that is verrrrry bad good news.

      1. ...the web site makes me wonder if this is another location of a bakery from elsewhere, in terms of professionalism, depth of flavors, etc.

        Anyone else get that feeling?

        Either way, I'll go. Diet be damned.

          Their website is a lot like Sprinkles website in the way their calendar and flavors are set up.

        2. I laughed out loud when I first read your post. I thought you wrote you were dieting for a cupcake place to open up, not dying. I guess that would be a good idea before indulging, though.

            Spelling they won't let me go back and edit so I'm ashamed of my improper spelling. Now I wish I could diet for a cupcake place to open, but that seems counterproductive.

          2. Hopefully it is run with better service and less pretentiousness than Georgetown cupcake. (And better than mediocre cupcakes)

              Yeah, I visited GC and didn't find them to be anything special.
