The Cupcake Cup: Mother’s Macaroons vs. Best Buns

Help us vote for the best cupcake in Washington.

The cupcake competition continues. Cupcakes Actually and Nostalgia Cupcakes are in a tight race over here until 10 AM tomorrow. Click below for this afternoon's match up.

Mother's Macaroons: This Arlington bakery may focus on the sweet treat that's its namesake, but its also makes loads of cupcakes topped with buttercream frosting. Try the orange cake or lemon cake—and make sure to order some sprinkles on top.

Best Buns: This adorable little spot in Arlington offers giant cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Try the chocolate cupcake with peanut buttercream—you won't regret it.


This poll will close Tuesday at 2 PM.

*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.
