Chateau Gateau Cupcakes - Alexandria Farmers Market

I've got to tell you about some fantastic cupcakes at the Old Town Farmers Market in Alexandria, Virginia. Chateau Gateau, a local online bakery run by owner Sarina Luangkhot, sells their cupcakes from 5:30am - 11:00am every Saturday at the King Street Court House location. And my oh my, based on the one I tried...boy are they delleicious!
Sarina's Carrot Cake Cupcake, "Whats Up Doc," I had from her stand at the Old Town Farmers Market

The Farmer's Market Prices for Chateau Gateau's Cupcakes are $2/each or 6 for $10...great prices considering what a cupcake in this area normally costs! While Sarina doesn't have every flavor available for purchase at the Market, you can take a look at her menu online and place an order for delivery. Her menu includes 9 different flavors, with the likes of "Pucker Up," a lemon curd cake with lemon zest frosting, "Calvin's Applecakes," butter cake filled with apple butter topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and "Peter Peter," Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cake with chocolate ganache, to name a few. The catering prices are $20/dozen with a minimum order of 2 dozen.

So instead of sleeping in next Saturday, wake up early and get yourself over to the Farmers Market to try some of these amazing little cupcakes!!
