red velvet cupcakery review

Over Labor Day weekend, we went to visit friends in Virginia. While there we did our customary vacation thing and stopped at a cupcake shop to sample the wares. This time it was Red Velvet Cupcakery. We only tried a few flavors as these were super expensive, which contributed to our general feeling of "meh" about them. Tasted just fine, of course much better than a nasty Giant Eagle cupcake, but still dry. What is it with people selling cupcakes thinking that letting them sit around for a day or two or somewhere that isn't airtight will not have an adverse effect on the flavor? Dry cake is one of my big culinary pet peeves. However, we're still glad we tried them out!

Cookies and cream.

Some type of chocolate/peanut butter, which would have been my favorite.


Lemon and coconut

 Campfire (toasted marshmallow and graham cracker)

Red velvet

Overall decent, with a good frosting to cake ratio. A little bit overpriced for what they were, but still good.
