Food.Fun.Stuff: Welcome to Red Velvet

[ 1 ] January 15, 2009 |

Today is the day:-) What day are we ranting and raving about on this cold, chilly, freezing (*you get the vibe of how chilling the temperatures are in the District;-) day?? The Grand Opening of Red Velvet! Red Velvet is the Districts newest cupcake obsession and today starting at 11 am, it will be offering a free cupcake to its first 500 customers:-) Of course, JKGF will be in the building and will hopefully leave the premises without purchasing more than 4 cupcakes (*Recently we left a local cupcake shop and 6 cupcakes came with us…) Stop by and get there Early to beat the rush…

Since we already checked the place out for our readers, we have the low down:

Vanilla Bean-Deelish!! (This is definitely one of our top 3.)
Key West-If your into Lime, you will definitely want to try this one
Southern Belle-Yaay for more Red Velvet cupcakes in the area!
B-day-Stick a candle in this one and make it cute for someone special…Celebrate:-)

    Hey J,

    I got a chance to try Red Velvet–I left with 4 the “Obama”, “Morning Coffee”, Coconut, and peanut butter. I don’t know if the Obama was a limited time special–it should be on their regular menu. Pineapple cake with salty macadamia frosting–YUM YUM. Peanut butter lovers will appreciate the peanut butter cupcake–not to sugary and has a pure peanut butter taste. Morning Coffee was a chocolate cupcake with mocha frosting–it was good, but I my favorite mocha cupcake is from Sticky Fingers Bakery in Columbia Heights which is a high bar to meet. : ) The coconut was fine.

    Your friend in FOOD,
