In 2014, I moved to Delaware. I went to D.C during the cherry blossom festival, I finally was able to visit the store. I was shocked to see the line in front of the store, it was so long that I could not see the end of the line. I decided to only take some pictures in front of the store, no matter how much I wanted to try the famous cupcake, cup cake is cup cake, and I will not wait for an hour for a cupcake.
Since we moved to DC we drove by a few times, but the line was so darn long, so we never ended up getting down and dirty with the frosting...until today, on a cold day in early March, 2017. It was not planned, we walked by, and the line was not as long as usual, so we decided to do it once and for all. We were lucky, we waited "only" for 15 minutes. When it was finally our turn, I can see my self stepped inside the store, in slow motion, just like in a movie.
The store is small, I think it can only hold up to 20-25 people. Inside the store, there is a big cup cake selection menu and price. For today, there were 28 different cup cakes available, and as usual, the more options I have, the more confused I get. Because we were in diet, we decided to get half dozen. My husband chose chocolate ganache and chocolate mint crunch. I chose the most popular one; Red Velvet, I also got unicorn and pink tulip, while Alex his only option is gluten free strawberry lava fudge. Our order of cupcake was ready in less than 10 minutes, all packed up in that famous pink box.
Oh, that cute bag is my new addition. It is a mix and match bag, the bag has different panels that can be snapped and unsnapped, the panels come in different design and fabric, and I can switch the panels and match it to my outfit of the day.
