Meetup No. 3 - Reflecting Pool
Yesterday afternoon the DC/Metro Cupcake Group had our 3rd meetup, and it was a really good time! We had great weather and a great spot in the shade by the Reflecting Pool. Minus a couple of us sitting in Goose poop, everything went smoothly!
There were about 15 of us, and we had wayyyy too many cupcakes (if there is such a thing!). There were so many delicious flavors - two different types of Vanilla, Chocolate with Orange Frosting, German Chocolate, Red Velvet, Lemon with Raspberry Frosting, Golden cake with Chocolate frosting, two different types of Carrot Cake, Strawberry, Smores, Ginger, Double Chocolate, it was fantastic! The Smores, Ginger, and Double Chocolate were all brought by one of our group members, Sam, and his wife who picked them up from Lola Cookies & Treats in Leesburg, Virginia. I didn't try the Ginger, but the Smores was amazing and the Double Chocolate was really really good too. I'll have to check this Lola place out.
