I didn't forget. I promise. Life has been- well....crazy for lack of a better term. AND I've been on a diet. AND I went on a mini vacation to see my husband. AND I'm supposed to be pre-packing for the movers. Excuses. LOTS of them.
I went to visit my husband in Washington D.C. We did touristy (is that a word?) things- saw monuments, ate lots of good food, paid too much for funky museums. You know touristy things. So right down the street from the Crime and Punishment Museum (you wanna guess who's idea that was?- BTW it's $20 a person to get in) was the Red Velvet Cupcakery. Oh it was cute!!
I was able to talk him into getting two cupcakes. (at $4 each I was having a hard time talking him into one) Anyway we finally decided on the Southern Belle (since it was called Red Velvet Cupcakery after all) and the Devil's Food (cause I have this problem with chocolate...and if I was gonna cheat on my diet....). They were both AWESOME. I wish I took a picture of the set up in the shop- then you'd be able to see why I had a really hard time deciding!!
Yes that's a sad photo. It was way early in the AM when we got them- and that's the look of them AFTER they ran through the security center at the National Archives...just a bit smooshed.
Don't tell my husband I posted this. He liked his cupcake though!
It was one of those things that just had to be experienced. They were good...next time I'm gonna go for a few different flavors, thinking the peanut butter or cookies and cream...
Yes, they do deliver.
Oh and just so you can see that at least our heads went on vacation...
