Is it a surprise that I’m writing about cupcakes? Considering I devoted an entire post to DC’s famed cupcake establishment, Georgetown Cupcake, you should have seen this coming.
When I discovered Buttercups Cupcakes I had to refrain from cartwheeling down the street with excitement. Recently voted “Best Red Velvet” on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, this little shop hit the sweet spot. Everything is baked daily from scratch and you can taste the freshness. Their chocolate cupcake is reminiscent of the homemade sugary birthday cake you had when you were 5 years old.
I am just going to come right out and say it: Buttercups rivals Georgetown Cupcake. Yep, it’s that good.
Now that a decadent cupcake bakery has been located, I can breathe a sigh of relief. With Buttercups in 2 nearby locations, overnight shipping from Georgetown Cupcake won’t be necessary to sustain my chocoholic habits.
