Out of The Hat

Making the Ordinary, Extraordinary


On a tour of Old Town, Alexandria (Virginia) I found this cute little shop. They had the most amazing cupcakes, and there was a gluten free flavor! (Gluten free seems to be almost universal in Old Town!) It was dark flourless chocolate with peanut sprinkles, and there was a hint of cinnamin in the cupcake itself that really made it taste even better than flourless cake usually does. Believe me, Id know. I happen to be a connoisseur of flourless cakes, and especially the chocolate variety. Ive tried them all, but this one really takes the cake. Or, even better, the cupcake!Lavender moon cupcakery flourless chocolate cupcake

These were so good, I ate half of mine before I remembered to take a picture! There were several other varieties available, though the flourless chocolate was the only available gluten free variety. The gluten free flavor rotates, so when I go back in a week or so, there will be some other flavor to try!

They also sell bottled drinks in the store, like bottled tea and water. I chose to take my reusable water bottle, mainly because I take my Camelback everywhere I go.

The inside of the store was so cute! It really looked like a little doll house. You could tell it was an old building, as the stairs at least were perhaps 2 feet wide, if that.
