Best of 2005: Kudos for Cupcakes

Our pick for cupcakes

Baked and Wired (1052 Thomas Jefferson St., NW; 202-333-2500), a sliver of a Georgetown bakeshop, turns out gorgeous, oversize cupcakes elegantly wrapped in stiff paper ($3.85 each). Our favorites include moist yellow cake with pink icing; coconut cream cheese; and carrot. Available sporadically at the store or by special order.Washingtonian staffers contributing to this section were Cristina Abello, Susan Baer, Susan Davidson, Ken DeCell, Rebecca Dreilinger, Kim Isaac Eisler, Mary Clare Fleury, Kimberly Forrest, Brooke Lea Foster, Garrett M.
