What do you get when you bring together 35 cupcakes from 7 DC bakeries, with just 4.5 people to eat them?

Free-cupcake Friday at Crumbs DC

Crumbs opened in Metro Center this week, upping the ante for the DC cupcake wars. Be one of the first thousand in line on Nov. 19 to get your free cupcake. (I bet Red Velvet isn’t too thrilled about competition in the neighborhood.)

Personally, I’m more excited about the impending Sprinkles opening, which feels like it’s been forever in the making.


Is there such thing as cupcake fatigue?

Someone must’ve caught wind of how much moolah the Georgetown Cupcake sisters are pulling in, because there’s a slew of cupcake places coming soon to DC. A sugar coma is imminent.

Sprinkles will be opening a location in Georgetown (timing TBD). I’ve only tried them via their mixes at Williams & Sonoma. I can’t wait to try the real goods.

The market for cupcakes in this town already seems near saturation point. Will someone open a French macaroon place, please?
