New Find: Frosting A Cupcakery

There is nothing better than stumbling upon a new find while taking a leisurely Sunday stroll. This is exactly what happened to me as I was walking around Friendship Heights earlier today and my new find was Frosting A Cupcakery. Despite having leftover Georgetown Cupcakes from my birthday and plans to make banana Nutella crepes tonight, I allowed spontaneity to trump logic and went inside.

I was happily greeted by Todd, co-owner and husband to Michelle, also an owner, who was helpful in assisting me with a REDiculous cupcake. Anytime I try a new cupcake place, I always order my favorite cupcake, red velvet. Since red velvet is standard at most cupcake shops, it's easy to see the positives and negatives of each store, as well as taste a different interpretation of the favorite Southern dessert.

Now, I've tried many red velvet cupcakes throughout the city but most failed to live up to my favorite, Georgetown Cupcake. For the first time in two years, I found a cupcake that did just that. Delightfully moist and topped with a frosting that perfectly balanced cream cheese and sugar, I had to stop myself from getting another one to try. In fact, I've already started a list of what to get when I return:

Campfire: graham cracker bottom with milk chocolate ganache and marshmallow top
Skinniment: chocolate bottom with peppermint vanilla buttercream top
Jackie-Oh!: chocolate bottom with almond buttercream top
Frenchie: French toast bottom with maple buttercream top

Frosting A Cupcakery also features illy coffee and espresso, as well as cookies, brownies, whoopie pies, dessert breads, and biscottis.

The grand opening will be on June 5th, so be sure to look for details next week.

Frosting A Cupcakery is located at 1 Wisconsin Circle, Chevy Chase, MD 20815. They are open Tuesday-Sunday.
