Great Cupcakes

Love these cupcakes. Better than the other gourmet cupcakes in the area. These are adult cupcakes with a sophisticated flavor. They are too expensive to give to kids to gulp down and not enjoy the refined flavor.

Many varieties of cupcakes are available. All are wonderful, but nothing can top their lemon curd cupcake.

Its off the beaten track (that is S Royal) if all you do is walk on King street. I live in OT and have sampled every cupcake place, this is ONE and ONLY place I will purchase a cupcake from. Their assortment is plentiful and during the summer months, ooh, those peach and strawberry cupcakes make my mouth water.

The pace is very tiny. They have some kind of unique flavors, but I wasn't all that impressed. They were a bit dry and pretty small (that's actually not a bad thing) as long as the price is in line with the service. Worth trying certainly and now that Crumbs has gone out of business, they can compete.

One of our favorite spots to visit in Old Town, this is a delightful little spot to buy a sweet treat, and it's usually worth it to buy some to go. They have a rotation of flavors that range from boldly yummy (I had a wonderful bourbon chocolate once) to a little too far out there for my tastes. The... More

I have been to all the cupcake shops in Alexandria and lavender moon is by far my favorite and the choice of my family and friends who have visited from out of town. The flavor combinations are incredible and the cake is always moist but not sticky like at other shops around town. If I'm not baking them myself I... More

I've tried cupcakes across the region, and Lavender Moon's are among the best. The cake is well-baked and moist, and the frosting is superb. The size is also regular size, so no over the top huge icing on a little cake. The chocolate and lemon curd are among my favorites!
