Something Sweet: Meghan Blair recently opened Something Sweet bakery in DC’s Cleveland Park. You can get the basic cupcakes every day—chocolate, vanilla and red velvet with cream cheese frosting—but on different days of the week the bakery serves up special flavors like maltball, Oreo, or coconut/almond. 

Chatman's D'Vine Bakery & Cafe: This Shaw bakery, which opened up in the ground floor of the DC Convention Center, offers up piles of Southern sweets. Their signature? The Red Velvet cupcake.
