Curbside Cupcakes: This mobile cupcake truck is an intersection of Washington's latest food trends—social-media marketing (follow the truck's whereabouts at, street food, and cupcakes—the concept was the brainchild of two friends who wanted cupcakes one day but didn't feel like schlepping to Georgetown to get them.

Just Cakes: This Bethesda neighborhood bakery offers a special sweethearts menu, which includes red-velvet cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and a six-inch heart-shaped cake covered in dark-chocolate ganache.

This poll will stay open until 10 AM Saturday.
