Northern Virginians are really getting spoiled with all these new cupcake places popping up left and right!
Cupcake lovers can now add Chateau Gateau to their list of local cupcakeries. Beginning on October 4, Sarina Luangkhot - lifetime baker and cupcake lover - will be selling her tasty treats every Saturday morning at the Old Town Alexandria Farmers Market. The Farmers Market, located at 301 King Street in Old Town (the Market Square at Alexandria City Hall) is open from 5:30-10:30am.
The flavors available the weekend of 10/4 are:
Ya Mon - Coconut cake with double cream frosting and a dusting of coconut.
Pucker Up - Lemon curd cake with lemon zest frosting.
Peter Peter - Pumpkin chocolate chip cake with chocolate ganache.
What's Up Doc? - Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
PMS Rx - Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.
The Farmer's Market prices for Chateau Gateau cupcakes are $2.00 each, or 6 for $10.00. Chateau Gateau also caters, so check their website for more pricing and details!
If you're in the area or looking for something to do on a Saturday morning, give Chateau Gateau a try and let us know what you think! I plan on dropping by myself, so I'll keep you posted too!
