Four pink lemonade cupcakes, and a Hello Cupcake gift card. Now who wouldn't want that on Valentines' Day?

Hello Cupcake is offering up a promotion called Sweet Tarts for your Sweetheart. You can buy their special Valentine’s-Day-themed pink lemonade cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting in a set of four, along with a Hello Cupcake gift card. Who wouldn’t want a gift like that for Valentine’s Day (hint hint. Except that I already asked for flowers! Which, actually I do really want. Hint, hint). Cupcakes are $3 each, $12 for 4, $18 for a half dozen, and $33 per dozen.

For the holiday Georgetown Cupcake will be offerings its signature Red Velvet cupcake, which, let me tell you, is absolutely dreamy. But they’ll also be offering Strawberry and Chocolate Strawberry cupcakes, complete with fondant hearts that have messages like “be mine” written on top. I am such a sucker for a cute fondant decoration, that I think I may need to make a special trip. Cupcakes are $2.75 each, $15.00 for a half dozen, and $29.00 for a dozen, and will be available during February.

Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe will be offering absolutely adorable yellow and chocolate cupcakes with heart-shaped sprinkles. I think I’m in love! Cupcakes are $1.25 apiece.



Wouldn't you rather get a dozen Red Velvet cupcakes than a dozen roses? Image courtesy of Bakeshop DC.

BakeShop will be offering Red Velvet cupcakes, which you can buy in packages of one dozen or two dozen. One dozen Red Velvets go for $24.00 and can be picked up at Murky Coffee (3211 Wilson Boulevard) in Arlington. Two dozen cupcakes are $48.00 and can be delivered for a $10 fee. By the way, did you hear that BakeShop will soon be opening a storefront in Clarendon? I’ll have to make a pilgrimage!

    Wait… did you try the Hello Cupcake pink lemonade cupcakes? That seems to be your photo. They look really good! A much better attempt at a special cupcake than their Safeway looking inauguration offering.

    I didn’t actually try it – Penny Karas took it for me. We should make a field trip to try all these cupcakes . . .
