The Cupcake Cup: Cupcakes Actually vs. Nostalgia Cupcakes

Help us vote for the best cupcake in Washington.

Happy Monday, cupcake lovers! The weekend brought us two more Edible Eight entrants—Something Sweet won over Sticky Fingers, and Bakeshop triumphed over Hello Cupcake. So let's get the rest of this cupcake party started this week.

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.

Nostalgia Cupcakes: This Annapolis bakery offers up a "Hot Chocolate" cupcake, salted-caramel cupcakes, and much more. Bonus: If you bring your four-legged friend along, the store has "pupcake" treats for them.


This poll will close Tuesday 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.
