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, I
d 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!
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.
The Lavender Moon Cupcakery has no website, so I linked you up to another blog post with store hours and a few more pictures. You can also look at the store
