In addition to enjoying the American History Museum, I convinced our family to head on over to the Red Velvet Cupcakery and give their goodies a try (what is any trip without cupcakes??). Their shop on 7th street was super tiny but there was seating available at the juice shop (I think) next door. We were taking ours to go anyway after a huge delicious lunch at the Poste Moderne Brasserie. I eventually tried the red velvet, carrot cake, morning call, and gingerbread cupcakes. I also had a bite of my mom's key west cupcake. I liked the red velvet cupcake, but there was tons of frosting, delicious frosting, but a bit too much of it. The carrot cake, morning call, and gingerbread cupcakes were pretty good but nothing to get in a rage about. I have to say that the key west cupcake was a little weak on lime flavor, and key lime is a very strong flavor so they should have no problem bringing it out in a cupcake. Over all I'd have to rate this cupcakery a B, pretty much everything was good, but nothing was spectacular. Here are some pics:
I miss DC! So many cupcakeries, so little time!
