What You'll Get
Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of cupcakes, pastries, brownies, and more at Frosting – A Cupcakery in Chevy Chase, right off the Friendship Heights Red Line station.
Cuteness is a legitimate business plan at Frosting's treat boutique, which is minimally dressed in cream-colored shades throughout both indoor and outdoor seating areas. The cupcake flavors ($2.75 each) come in 26 varieties and, like the seasons, rotate daily. Nibble on the edelweiss, richly almond tasting and topped with further almond buttercream, or crunch into the french-toast inspired Frenchie with a buttery maple dollop up top. There's even a few gluten-free flavors, such as the densely choctacular and fudge-topped cioccolato and the flavorful coconut-dusted snowflake.
Frosting isn't all cupcakes all the time. Thick brownies make a mumble-filled, gooey statement ($2.50), and cookies ($1.75) fit more easily into skeet-shooting launchers. While the mom-and-daughter team of Ann and Michelle man the standing mixer and mind the ovens, Michelle's hubby Todd works the illy-packed espresso machine, dispensing shots of roastlicious caffeine to complement those stout bursts of sugary frosting. Sip a frothy latte ($2.85/small), cappuccino ($2.80/small), or just a regular ol' cup o’ Todd ($1.70/small).
This frosting-flecked family knows that serving cupcakes to your guests cuts down on dirty dishes and eliminates the shame of being the first one to cut into the cake. Instead of making a different cake to suit everyone's tastes, you can get five different flavors for fickle friends or firmly redefine adulthood with a cupcake-tasting party with a wine pairing for each scrumptious treat. Gone are the obnoxious protestations that a slice of cake is too big. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand, you'll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about blown diets and foreign occupation.
