I brake for cupcakes. Well for most baked goods.
So on our trip, when we found ourselves strolling around Alexandria, VA I had to seek out a couple cupcake shops!
Love the name of this place - I got the Orange Dreamcicle cupcake there.
I also can't resist a tea shop - I found 2 nice oolong tea varieties at this shop.
And finally Occasionally Cake - where we picked up a Fairy Floss cupcake.
We didn't sample our cupcakes until we were back at our hotel. Don't bother with Lavedar Moon cupcakes - the cake part was more like a muffin, and the icing was just gross. (the pale cupcake in the plastic bubble)
The Occasionally Cake cupcake (in the cellophane bag) on the other hand - was DIVINE! Nice fluffy cake and super yummy sweet icing! Still not as good as House of Cupcakes in Princeton, NJ - but close!
