Red Velvet Cupcakery - The Apartments at CityCenter
In the last few years cupcakes have burst on to the D.C. scene as the dessert of choice. Cucpakeries sprang up all around, some stationary while others carved out an even greater niche in the food truck arena. Each with its own secret weapon, a list of mouthwatering flavors and exotic icings, these confectioners are ready for war.

Crafting the perfect cupcake is an art. The boldness of flavor, the cake to icing ratio and even the amount of sugar in the icing can be the difference between the delicate line of yum and yuck.
Red Velvet opened in December of 2008 with one mission in mind; to raise the bar of cupcake expectations. The kitchen is staffed by trained pastry chefs who infuse love and creativity into each creation. Ingredients are of the finest quality available. The company also likes to support local farms when possible and donates all unsold cupcakes to homeless shelters at day’s end.
The cupcakes come in flavors like: Devil’s Food, Vanilla Bean, Cookies n Cream, and Summertime. The namesake cupcake known as the Southern Belle is made with signature whipped cream cheese topping and moist red velvet cake. It is said to be a “must have” for first time visitors. The cupcakery also features a special flavor daily.
You can enjoy single cupcakes or cater your next big event. Red Velvet specializes in weddings, birthdays and corporate events. You can customize flavors and garnishes and even order mini cupcakes. Whatever your occasion – there is a solution!
