Lavender Moon Cupcakery

This Halloween, hubs and I got our sweets in the form of cupcakes!

I have long wanted to visit Lavender Moon Cupcakery (heck, even hubs had them before and raved about them) in Old Town Alexandria and this past weekend, I finally did.

There were around 12-15 flavors available, we decided on tiramisu, blood orange dreamsicle, smores, and chocolate cupcake with peanut butter and chocolate ganache frosting. $3 each.

I thought all the cupcakes were delicious. The cakes were dense and moist, while the frostings were light and fluffy. I don't usually like dense cakes, but I will make exceptions for these! Yum. I have to say that blood orange dramsicle was my fav, but maybe it was because I was really, really hungry when I had it.

Lavender Moon Cupcakery is located right off King Street, nestled in a row of stores. The store sign isn't terribly big so it's easy to miss. Hubs has good eyes and spotted it right away. To keep it small and low-key, they don't have a website nor they take credit cards! Luckily, we got just enough cash on hand. Whew!
