For some reason WordPress isn’t letting me upload pictures, so this is coming at you really late. It was another great weekend here in Virginia. Were really getting lucky with this awesome weekend weather we’ve been having lately. Jason and I caught up with his friend Mike on Saturday and it wasn’t long before we got into a ‘cupcake debate’. I’m sure it’s obvious from some of my other posts that I love cupcakes. So, it wasn’t long before we were headed to D.C. to settle the score! Jason has sworn by “Baked and Wired” ever since we first tried them a few years ago, while I’ve always been a “Red Velvet Cupcakery” and “Sprinkles” fan. Mike was elected to be the tie breaker since he’s new to the D.C. cupcake scene.
So who won??? It was inconclusive, I think our tie breaker just didn’t want to pick a side. But my absolute favorite cupcake in the Northern Virginia/DC area is Red Velvet Cupcakery. They just have the perfect cake to frosting ratio and are always full of delicious flavor. Sprinkles would be a close second. I feel like their cupcakes are heavy and dense (in the best way) compared to others, and are super tasty and moist.
We had a pretty fabulous time enjoying our cupcakes by the Washington Monument before embarking on a 4 mile walk to burn off all that frosting. Along the way we made stops at the Washington Monument and WWII Memorial. But, my favorite stop of the night was the Lincoln Memorial. It’s always been my favorite spot in DC. The view from atop the steps and being able to see so many of DC’s important landmarks and monuments just can’t be beat. I wish I had remembered to snap a quick photo of it but I completely forgot:(
We decided to extend our walk just a little more and stop by the White House. I don’t think Mike had ever been to many of the places we visited so it was a great opportunity for him to really experience DC.
