Things are starting to get real, folks, as cupcake giants go up against one another in the Sweet Sixteen voting around. Today we have two Georgetown institutions that will have to battle it out. Meanwhlie, Fancy Cakes by Leslie won over Heidelberg; and Curbside Cupcakes is taking on Baked & Wired here. Click below for this afternoon's match up.
Georgetown Cupcake: This cupcakery is one of the grandaddies of the exploding cupcake trend in Washington. The sisters behind the operation give away one cupcake flavor for free every day (follow their Twitter to find out which one). Favorite flavors include peanut-butter fudge, key lime, and plain old chocolate.
Furin's: This Georgetown cafe claims to serve cupcakes that are "bigger and better than ANY other cupcake in Georgetown." Try one of the (admittedly massive) cupcake flavors like chocolate or strawberry shortcake and decide for yourself.
This poll will stay open until 2 PM on Friday.
