Small cupcake shop on the main street in National Harbor, the complex down the hill from the new casino in Oxon Hill. Good priced, good taste and small to medium size.

They had a special deal on their cupcakes for Valentine's day and they tasted really good. Our only issue was that the red velvet left a lot of crumbs, but other than that!

Love the chocolate turtle cupcakes! The toppings were great. The size was small to medium. These little cakes were full of flavor but not overly moist.

Excellent sugar rush. Creative favors and nice people. Cake was light and the cupcakes didn't have too much icing.

It smells like sugar from the moment you get close and the cup cakes are excellent! Quick service and they offered to warm it up for me which really made the difference.

How could I not seek out a place called "Cake Love" ??! We were walking around the Harbor and noticed the sign. Upon closer examination, we noticed that the shop had been closed and cleared out completely.

I had gone years ago, had some great cupcakes and wanted to return. It was no longer there - it had closed.

I went there a little while back with my family and wow did we enjoy. Went this past weekend with a friend and it's gone. I can't imagine it didn't do well. The line was out the door when I went previously. The cupcakes were to die for!

I wanted to try something from this shop. The owner appeared in a tv show. A lawyer, he decided that he was not happy in that profession. He enjoys baking instead. Much as I wanted to "love" his product, the cupcakes were ordinary - cakes that could have been made from a premix with very thick toppings. Also, the physical... More
