The Cupcake Cup: Cupcakes Actually vs. Alexandria Pastry Shop

Help us vote for the best cupcake in Washington.

Happy Tuesday morning, everybody! Ready for some more Cupcake Cup matchups? We're getting close—by tomorrow we'll have the final Sweet Sixteen. Who do you think will advance to the Edible Eight—or even take it all? Bakeshop is moving on to the Sweet Sixteen—it won easily over Breads Unlimited. Lavender Moon and Sticky Fingers' cupcakes are still battling it out over here—you can vote in that contest until 2 PM today. Click below for this morning's match up.

Cupcakes Actually: At this Fairfax cupcakery, Detroit-bred sisters Sue Woodhouse and Jennifer Neiman recruited a cook with experience at California’s French Laundry to fine-tune their 25 cupcake recipes, three of which are topped with chocolate-dipped buttercream frosting.

Alexandria Pastry Shop: This catering and pastry company uses real butter and cream from Shenandoah Valley creameries in their cupcakes and cakes.


This poll will close Wednesday at 10 AM.

*To help keep this contest fair, we’ve elected to use an IP address-based poll. This means that if you are voting from an office or network setting, not everybody will be able to vote. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we hope you’ll encourage coworkers to vote from their home computer.
