Thank you, thank you very much, Hello Cupcake!

Quite some time ago, I blogged about the impending thrill of seeing a cupcakerie open up in Dupont Circle. Well, said establishment, Hello Cupcake, opened up about two weeks ago, & I was one of the many to wait in an hour-long line to try the goods. I've now tried Rootbeer Float, Peanut Butter Blossom, 24 Carrot, Peppermint Penny & the Hello Cupcake Original. For the sake of my hips, I hope you'll bear in mind that the majority of these treats were shared with coworkers. And by "the majority," I actually mean "all." Seriously.

Yesterday, I'd admitted defeat. No matter how badly I wanted to adore Hello Cupcake, I simply didn't. I was deflated.

And then? Today, a coworker needed a travel buddy as she trekked to the south side of Dupont Circle for a little cupcake indulgence. And today, I discovered the love of my life -- VELVET ELVIS.
Spongy banana cake with luscious peanut butter frosting. I am, suffice it to say, smitten. This cupcake was.... who can guess what I'm going to say next?

You got it:


  1. A fellow cupcake lover and a fellow Buckeye? I'll be back to read more...

  2. I'm hoping we can visit Hello Cupcake on our trip. Sounds great!

  3. Ugh, if I actually had the sense of taste this morning, I'd love one. Sounds like it would come deep fried, though.


Leave me some love.
