another DC cupcake wars contender: buzz bakery, arlington

The rematch continues.

Here’s the Buzz Bumble Bee cupcake, a vanilla cupcake with a chocolate center and vanilla buttercream frosting. (The bee isn’t edible, for anyone wondering). The cake and filling were tasty enough, but the slightly gritty buttercream was a buzzkill. It had the taste and consistency of something you’d expect from a Safeway cake. Bummer.

This chocolate cupcake was created for the 9:30 club. It’s a devil’s food cake with a vanilla center topped with chocolate icing dipped in ganache. I thought I tasted hints of coffee in the ganache or icing (Barefoot Contessa would be proud). This one’s a winner. I’d be surprised if it wasn’t the best thing on the 9:30 club menu.
