Feel the cakelove

May 29, 2009

cakelove Have you noticed how cupcakes are the trendy dessert of the moment? Bakeries are popping up all over the US and abroad, it seems.  I first heard about DC-based Cakelove from a cooking show on tv, and was intrigued by the lawyer-turned-chef Warren Brown– someone who was truly following their bliss to open a bakery.  I finally succumbed to the cupcake craze yesterday when I passed by one of Cakelove’s bakeries – I got one for my daughter and her friend, a lovely vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting.  I have to say that it was quite possibly the best cupcake I’ve had. (I had to have a bite in the name of research!)  The frosting was real, made with chunks of real strawberries, and not sickly sweet like some frostings.  Cakelove now has 7 locations in the DC area, and also does big cakes and other sweet treats.  I am looking forward to my daughter’s next playdate to try out another flavor!

Oooh, those sound great. I just clicked over and saw they have a new location in Tyson’s Corner. Next time I’m home in the US for a visit I’ll have to stop by and sample a cupcake. Thanks for the tip!
