Red Velvet Cupcakery Restaurant Review

: In the metro area, the cupcake wars go on and on. Now with several outlets in DC, several in Arizona, and one in Reston, this cupcake brand is going all out to win over people’s sweet tooth. Qualified bakers oversee the cupcake making, and the staff, at least in Reston, seems to be busy baking for hours on end. High-end ingredients do yield quality results, and flavors are straightforward: think carrot cake, devil’s food and vanilla. Each mouthful promises sweet treats, but the main hitch here is that cupcakes are small. If your appetite is large, you may need to buy several to satisfy that inner child.
