Alexandria Cupcake

opifan64 Apr 23, 2011 05:57 AM

I'm from Toronto and was in Washington recently for a visit. I stopped in at a cupcake shop in old town and had the most amazing, delicious cupcake. I think it was Alexandria Cupcake on King Street, as a Google search didn't bring up any other cupcake shops in the area.

Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else had tried it and if they thought it was as incredible as I did. Maybe the bar has been lowered for me because I've never tasted a cupcake that good in Toronto (although apparently there are some very good shops that I haven't tried yet).

    I have only had the ones from Lavender Moon and Buzz, but will have to try it out. My favorite in the DC area are Georgetown Cupcake (which you can get shipped) and Bakeshop VA if you are ever back in the area. Glad you had a nice one!

      Alexandria Cupcake is very good, definitely one of the better cupcakes I've had. They have nice clean flavors, and aren't smothered in icing like they do at many other cupcake places.

        How about Best Buns! I like Buzz too! But Best Buns is one of the best in the metro dc area-in my opinion of course!
