Location: Hello Cupcake 1351 Connecticut Ave NW, DC
Flavors: Princess Strawberry, Vanilla on Vanilla, 24KT Cake, Chococo
Hello Cupcake is located in bustling Dupont Circle, just a few blocks from the metro. The staff was very friendly staff and despite the off-putting smell that occurs each afternoon as they drain the fry vats (why do they need fry vats?), the overall ambiance is cool. My friend and I ordered four cupcakes each and washed it down with a carton of organic milk.

First, I tried the traditional vanilla on vanilla which was rich in texture and flavor. The princess cupcake was delectable in addition to its flavorful cousin the 24KT cupcake (a carrot cake cupcake with cream cheese frosting). After acting as a true foodie and saving room for the coveted chocolate-coconut cupcake, I was not disappointed. The flavors merged well together without overcompensating one for another. Overall they are a decent size for the price requested and their pink and white motif appeals to my uber girly side.
