Here we are, folks! It's the first face-off of the Sweet 16 of the Cupcake Cup. It's an exciting morning, as we're really starting to get down to it in terms of cupcake supremacy. Are you ready to start voting? Let's get on it. Click below for this morning's match up.
Baked & Wired: The cupcakes at this Georgetown spot are well-regarded for their size and buttery, cake-like texture. Owner Teresa Velazquez uses family recipes and turns out conventional flavors (red velvet, vanilla with chocolate) as well as creative creations such as lemon with a raspberry-jam center and the Elvis—a banana cake with peanut-butter frosting.
Curbside Cupcakes: This mobile cupcake truck is an intersection of Washington's latest food trends—social-media marketing (follow the truck's whereabouts at twitter.com/curbsidecupcake), 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.
This poll will stay open until Friday 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.
