      Thank you SO much Shakia! I will definitely add these to the radar. So many cupcakes, so little time 🙂

    Yummy-o! So glad I stumbled across your blog. I’m always gamed to try out a new cupcake. Another nomadic cupcakery you may want to be on the look out for in DC is Sidewalk Sweetsations. Similar idea to Curbside Cupcakes, except they also offer cup-pies and cup-tails.

    • jnbean August 29, 2010 at 12:41 pm #

      Thanks so much for visiting Carla, and for the Sidewalk Sweetsations tip! I’ll definitely add it to “On the Radar” and be on the look out. I love the idea of cup-pies, and am very curious to find out what cup-tails are! 🙂

    Have you tried fluffy thoughts in mclean?

    • jnbean August 31, 2010 at 4:00 am #

      I was just thinking this past weekend that downtown McLean could really use a cupcakery! Fluffy thoughts’ cakes look amazing. Do you know if they have cupcakes for immediate sale or do they need to be special ordered?
      Thanks for the lead!

      • angela September 2, 2010 at 12:53 am #

        They have a bunch premade. I special ordered some for my daughter’s 1st bday and they were delicious! You should definitely give it a try:)

    Please check out Crumbs Bake Shop, http://www.crumbs.com/
    with several locations in NY including Broadway, 1675 Broadway (53rd). I found out about the shop after my last visit to NY and I have friend them on Facebook to stay informed of an upcoming location in the DMV. Hope it makes the crusade list during your visit.

    I don’t know about the cupcake shops in NYC but “Sugar Sweet Sunshine” sounds pretty yummy to me. Have a great trip!

    • jnbean September 26, 2010 at 8:39 pm #

      I know, what a great name!! I’ll keep my eye out for them. Thanks Becky!

  7. Jill Martinson April 27, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    We would love to have you come in and review our cupcakes! We are in Alpharetta, GA off of Windward Parkway and Highway 9. Hope to see you in soon!

      Thank you so much, I’d love to visit. And your menu look delicious! Jilly’s in now on my radar!

      • Jill Martinson April 27, 2011 at 3:42 pm #

        Thanks! PS- Saw that sweet pockets is on your radar too…just an FYI their last day is this Saturday from what I hear!

      • jnbean April 27, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

        Oh goodness! It’s hard to hear of a cupcakery closing its doors. Thanks for the tip, Jill!

  8. Robb June 16, 2011 at 3:45 am #

    You should try the cupcakes at Sundrees Market on Broad Street in Augusta, Georgia. Best in Augusta. We love the peanut butter, margarita, banana split and black forest the best!

    • jnbean June 16, 2011 at 1:37 pm #

      Oh wow, thanks for the tip Robb! It sounds like Sundrees has some creative flavors to offer, love that! Looks like I’ve got to get back to Augusta sooner than later 🙂

      • Robb November 4, 2011 at 4:11 pm #

        Hey, I just wanted to let you know that the awesome cupcakes I told you about in Augusta, GA are now going to have their own storefront! Delightful Bites Cakery is having their grand opening tomorrow, 11/05. You can find out more about them and directions to their location on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/delightfulbites. My new favorite flavors are the Breakfast, which is a buttermilk cake with maple frosting and real bacon! And the Pumpkin Praline, pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and homemade pecan praline! They really do make the best cupcakes I’ve ever had!

      • jnbean November 4, 2011 at 4:48 pm #

        Were these the ones sold at the Sundrees Market? I love hearing about grand openings! I wish them lots of success! I’ll be sure to spread the word to my family in Augusta. And hope to get there soon myself! My last post was about cupcakes for breakfast, so that’s awesome that Delightful Bites can satisfy that craving too 🙂 Thanks Robb!

      • Robb November 4, 2011 at 5:09 pm #

        Yes! These were the ones at Sundrees. They are no longer selling them there but they’re still available downtown at Sit A Spell coffeeshop and of course now at their own storefront shop! Believe me it will be worth the trip to have some of their deliciousness! 🙂

      • jnbean November 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm #

        Good to know, thank you! They really sound good, wish I could go right now!!

  9. Valerie July 24, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

    The gluten free cupcakes at Hello Cupcake in DC were great! My co-workers seemed to enjoy the regular cupcakes.

    • jnbean July 24, 2011 at 7:09 pm #

      I’ve heard nothing but good things about Hello Cupcake, so that’s awesome that their gluten free are yummy. I’ve gotta get there next time I’m in the area!

  10. Shawn Newton October 5, 2011 at 4:11 am #

    If you ever get to Wilmington, North Carolina, there’s a terrific cupcake shop called Hot Pink Cake Stand on Front Street. Fantastic cupcakes and a great staff! Our favorites are Fridays, where the owner, Jody, alternates chocolate Guinness and chocolate bacon every week 🙂

    • jnbean November 4, 2011 at 2:19 pm #

      Hi Shawn! Thank you so much for the tip! (I’m so sorry I didn’t respond sooner, for some reason I didn’t get a notification about your comment. Hmmm, not sure where I went wrong there…) I’m going to add Hot Pink Cake Stand to my radar right now, and then hope I’ll be in Wilmington area soon because a chocolate bacon cupcake sounds fantastic! Thanks for checking out Cupcake Crusade!

  11. Ilana Gendelman November 17, 2011 at 12:59 pm #

    SAS Cupcakes! Locations in Newark, Delaware and Charlotte, North Carolina!!! Absolutely amazing cupcakes!!

    • jnbean November 17, 2011 at 1:45 pm #

      I’m going to add SAS to my “to-do” list 🙂 Thanks so much for letting me know! That’s great that they ship, too. I wonder what SAS stands for. I couldn’t find it on their website.

  12. Madison June 3, 2012 at 4:51 am #

    You gotta try just baked cupcakes and coffeehouse. Best ever!!

    • jnbean June 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm #
