Two years later, you can find the couple holding hands or being just plain adorable at Frosting in Chevy Chase. (Todd, Michelle, and her mother are business partners.) I met Michelle on Tuesday, and she radiates happiness. She’s had a big year, after all, getting married and starting a business.
All recipes are family secrets. (The carrot cake is Todd’s mother’s recipe, for example). The most popular cupcake is the traditional vanilla—but with Michelle’s super-secret extract this cupcake is anything but plain.
Frosting, a “boutique bakeshop,” holds its own in ritzy Chevy Chase, M.D.—it’s simply lovely. Their shop, Web site, logo, and menu are all super cute. More importantly, the cupcakes are delicious—moist, amazing, unique—girlfriend has some serious baking skills. And, at $2.75, they’re a whole two quarters cheaper than most competitors. They also have a breakfast bar with breakfast cupcakes—how novel!
We’re storybook ending satisfied.
