Cupcake Queens: Lavender Moon

Save to Foursquare

Nestled on South Royal Street just off bustling King Street lies a small, indiscriminant doorway with a cupcake sign by the door.  Upon entry, you are greeted by hand-painted flower pots, raspberry pink walls, and mismatched café seating.  The décor is shabby-chic with a hint of playfulness—lace curtains are accented by Christmas ornaments and the cupcakes are displayed on a variety of cake pedestals.  It seems as if you’ve just walked into your eccentric aunt’s cottage home rather than a bakery.

The cupcakes flavors, too, are playfully unique—Devil’s Food with Peanut Butter Ganache, Espresso Meringue, Mexican Chocolate Pudding Buttermilk Chocolate, Vanilla topped with Strawberry, Red Velvet, Vanilla Vanilla, and a few I cant remember the names of—including a flavor where she mentioned chocolate three times.

We had Peach and Vanilla Lemon Curd—vanilla cake filled with a thick, tart lemon curd and topped by vanilla-speckled frosting and a raspberry.

All in all, a charming ambiance, delicious cupcakes in unique flavors. Worth the trip to Alexandria.
