Me and my family love cupcakes -- who doesn't? And with most cupcakes from bakeries costing $3 each, you want to ensure it's a good cupcake (not to mention fat/calories).
We've tasted cupcakes from quite a few shops around NOVA and DC in the last couple of months, including Sprinkles, Alexandria Cupcake, Buzz Bakery, and a few others. By far, Lavender Moon is now hands down our favorite.
Flavors we've tried from LM include chocolate raspberry, flourless chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, lemon curd, lemon blackberry, Belgian chocolate, smores, strawberry, and I can't remember the others. As you can see, we've tried a lot!
By far, the best part of LM's cupcakes are the icing. They are light and whippy vs. stiff and thick like many icings. My husband and I often take the icing off cakes/cupcakes because it just has that overwhelming shortening/thick taste. Not so with LM. The icing is very flavorful and creamy.
The cake is very good, but a little drier than some I've tasted.
The prices are on par with what others charge ($3 a cupcake) and they use organic/natural ingredients. Perhaps that's why their cupcakes have a superior flavor.
You will not be disappointed with Lavender Moon. Just writing this makes me want to stop by for more treats.
