the competition: IcedGems Creations

Word travels fast when the IcedGems truck pulls up out front here in Baltimore. Sometimes we get an email, other times a co-worker comes up with a clear plastic container of the colorfully decorated desserts. And on days like today, you come back from lunch to find a cupcake personally delivered from a co-worker who feels the […]

maybe one day…

I walk past this store front every time I go from work to the Daily Grind weekday mornings. It would be the PERFECT spot for Kara’s Cakery. Fell’s Point doesn’t have a stand-out cupcake/cake shop. I’m secretly hoping I get a call one day from someone with more money than they know what to do […]

the competition: georgetown cupcake

A few weekends ago, we had a craving for Mon Ami Gabi. When I lived in Reston, there was one down the street in the town center and it is an AMAZING restaurant. Anyway, our friends Chris and Bridget met us at the Mon Ami in Bethesda and we had dinner together. If you are […]

the competition: red velvet cupcakery

  I haven’t evaluated the competition yet because it hasn’t opened, but a Red Velvet Cupcakery is going up in Reston Town Center, caddy corner to my office.

the competition: community canteen take 2

So I decided to give Community Canteen cupcakes another chance… or maybe it’s just because I start Weight Watchers tomorrow. Anyway – I picked a mini vanilla one. APPEARANCE: They put it in the same box as the standard ones – so being a mini size, the top didn’t get squished. But it did take […]

the competition: community canteen

  This first addition of The Competition comes to us from the Community Canteen. Today I chose a chocolate cupcake. Here is what I thought: APPEARANCE: Well it was cute sitting on the plate, but I suppose they didn’t have a box tall enough so this is what it looked like once I got it […]

a new regular addition: the competition

So for breakfast this morning I had a cup of instant oatmeal and a lean cuisine for lunch – needless to say I needed something sweet. Every once in awhile, I head across the breezeway to Community Canteen – a little lunch/coffee shop in the bottom of the building across from mine at work – and grab […]
