Fabulous Food Friday: Bakeshop
Let there be cake! Cupcakes, to be specific. I'm giving a special shout-out to my new neighbor, Bakeshop. The cupcakes are truly amazing, though they have other sweet temptations on hand like a variety of cookies and oatmeal cream pies. My husband Chris surprised me on Valentine's Day with two different kinds - red velvet and apple cupcakes. The icing was so light and fluffy and the cakes were moist. We've also tried the variety in the picture above - chocolate peanut butter, vanilla and chocolate - all were so fantastic that I will probably never need to bake again. The cupcake craze is still in full swing and if you haven't tried this place yet, you must add it to your list. For a leisurely afternoon in Clarendon, go to American Flatbread (see my previous review), walk a few doors down to Bakeshop for dessert, and buy a box of chocolates at Artisan Chocolates next door for the way home. (I'll review Artisan soon but don't let that stop you from going there in the meantime. Best chocolates around!)
It's hard to live right across the street from this place but I suppose someone has to do it.
