I tried the Mudslide, Chocolate with Sea salt, Hummingbird, and Turtle. All were good and moist. Great icing. Cute store! $12 for four so fair price in that area

I'm pretty much a cupcake aficionado at this point in my life (I would put myself in a pro-am category). I basically run and workout so that I can eat cupcakes. I have even been a cupcake contest judge (a bucket list item I didn't know I needed). So it is with much joy, fine TripAdvisor readers, that I give... More

Ordered the flourless chocolate with almonds+sea salt and a vanilla filled with lemon curd. They were AMAZING! The chocolate cake was almost like a brownie, but still light, moist, and flavorful. The frosting was thick and truffle like- so decadent! The vanilla cake was fluffy and had the perfect taste; the lemon curd didn't taste artificial and complimented the cake... More

This is a cute, funky cupcake store well worth the visit. We all had different flavors. Mine was a flourless chocolate cupcake that was divinely gooey. And the icing...so yummy.

This was our third cup cake stop. Third time is the charm. Very yummy cup cakes with many more choices of flavors. The strawberry with chocolate/strawberry frosting was quite tasty. Bought, lemon chiffon, chocolate with peanut butter frosting and a lemon blackberry to try later😉.

Waked around Alexandria and came across this cupcake spot. Decided to give it a shot. So yummy! The cakes were so moist, frosting was delish. We got the s'more, peanut butter and monkey (banana cupcake) all three were so good! Peanut butter was definitely my favorite! Recommended!

Very interesting flavor combinations. While very good I have to say Georgetown Cupcakes are still the best in the area.

I was in town and decided to stop here for some cupcakes for dessert after having a nice meal at a close-by restaurant. I tried 4 different cupcakes. When it comes to cupcakes, I find compare-and-contrast with another cupcake place is a good way to convey what to expect. I've had Georgetown Cupcakes a few times. Lavender Moon's cupcakes are...

After finding this 'cupcakery' here on Trip Advisor, we made an effort to visit whilst on a trip to Arlington for the marathon. We were not disappointed. Good choice, friendly staff and delicious, delicious cupcakes. Enjoy !

This cupcake shop always has a great seasonal selection. They also offer gluten free cupcakes and take special orders for smaller cupcakes. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
