Cupcake Love

Last spring I discovered the cutest cupcake bakery in Old Town Alexandria. My friends and I decided to put on our comfy shoes and stroll down King street (Old Town’s mainstreet) to check out the various retail shops and restaurants. Located in the heart of Old Town, in a townhouse probably built in the early 19th century, Alexandria Cupcake is a must stop for cupcake lovers.

I must admit that I’ve never been a big fan of cakes or cupcakes, but the colorful display of flavors and designs caught my eye. I ended up choosing the almond cupcake with almond frosting. Amazing! They even had glutten-free, carrot, and vegan options.

Located on 1022 King Street, between Patrick Street and Henry Street, Alexandria Cupcake first opened in January of 2010. They bake all of their cupcakes daily (from scratch) using premium ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, E. Guittard premium chocolate, organic eggs, and fresh fruit.

Flavor Suggestions:

Rosewater – One of their signature cupcakes! A rosewater cake with a rosewater glaze topped with a fresh raspberry.

Dark Chocolate – Who doesn’t love chocolate? This is a premium dark chocolate cake with a vanilla bean buttercream frosting, topped with shaved chocolate.

Chocolate Peanut Butter - Dark chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. A classic.

Almond – If you’re a fan of almonds, this cupcake is  … heavenly!
