So, while I whined about wanting to try the famous Voodoo donuts, the beau was not into it. We had a number of mixed reviews from locals and visitors that he just didn't want to bother. Instead, we came across Cupcake Jones while in the Pearl District and stopped in since we were both jonesin' for something sweet.
Oh boy, what a selection. We picked up a half dozen cupcakes that included The Pearl, carrot cake, choco peanutbutter, PB&J, and a vegan red velvet. We nibbled on them over three days, bringing two back w/ us to DC and scarfing two on the plane ride home.
Baked and Wired in DC is still my fave but Cupcake Jones definitely takes the #2 spot in my belly. My beau said they were the best he's tried. I think what made them so delicious was not only how moist they were and how perfect each flavor was but the filling in each one. It was a treat within a treat.
He was sad we didn't opt for the dozen because he was still jonsen' for one two days after returning home. I'm not above another trip to Portland for cupcakes.
