Red Velvet Cupcakery, I bow down to you

Last weekend I was in Washington DC (again), and was in dangerously close proximity to some great cupcake places that carried gluten free versions.  After seeing Claire’s post on Sprinkle’s red velvet cupcakes, I was determined to try them for myself.  But, when we walked by there was a line out the door, plus I had just eaten ice cream at Georgetown Scoops, so I didn’t have the dessert itch in me at the moment.

So, I “settled” for Red Velvet Cupcakery instead.

They only had one type of gluten free cupcake, but luckily it was a Black Velvet one – chocolate cake + chocolate icing = winner for me!  They said that they also carry seasonal gluten free varieties, but none right now.

This cupcake. was. perfection.

I ate half for dessert, and half for breakfast.

I can’t believe that it was also vegan, because the buttercream frosting was as good as any one that I’ve had.  It was super moist, rich chocolate flavor, and I loved the rainbow sprinkles on top.

I bow down to your cupcake glory.
