The Cupcake Cup: Buzz vs. Fancy Cakes by Leslie

Help us vote for the best cupcake in Washington.

Folks, we're nearly there. This competition is the last to determine who will be the final entrant into the Edible Eight. Congrats to Best Buns, who won handily over Mother's Macaroons; you can still vote here on the Edibles Incredible vs. CakeLove match up.

Buzz: Laptoppers love this bright bakery/lounge in Del Ray that's decorated with vintage baking tools and filled with leather club chairs. But they’re not here just for the free wifi. Pastry chef Josh Short’s cupcakes are some of the area's favorites. There's always seasonal flavors, but some that are usually available include the Buzz bumblebee, red-velvet, chocolate-and-espresso.

Fancy Cakes by Leslie: This brightly-colored Bethesda bakery offers up sweet cupcakes from red velvet to double chocolate. Kids go for icing mixed with (edible) glitter, while parents can get cupcakes spiked with liqueur.

This poll will stay open until Wednesday 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 computers.
