ACKC VA Discontinues Couture Cupcakes

I found out via one of our blog readers that the ACKC in Alexandria no longer carrier Couture Cupcakes. When I called up ACKC to confirm this, the manager said that “people stopped buying them here, so we had to discontinue them." The DC store does still carry them.

Couture Cupcakes, by the way, has changed its name to The Blushing Bakeshop. Their website however, still uses the same internet address. Apparently the name was changed because Couture Cupcakes plans to offer a line of gifts and baking products.

I used to like reading your blog, but I don't know what you have against Couture Cupcakes or whatever they are now calling themselves and other small cupcakeries. But give them a break! Everyone knows you LOVE Hello Cupcake which in my opinion makes you biased to all other places that sell cuppies. I would assume that if you are blogging to report on cupcake activities and places around town you would be more diplomatic and less bias. You would perhaps be more supportive and maybe balance your negativity with positive things the businesses have to offer. Just sayin' nicer. You don't see Cupcaketakesthecake announcing someone is closing like it's the end of the world. When Chicago Cupcakes closed it was treated kindly not exposed as the worse thing ever.

Clearly we were reading two different postings. I run a Cupcake Blog, therefore, I report on ALL Cupcake News. A shop who discontinued carrying cupcakes is cupcake news. Repeating a quote is actually fact, not opinion.

I'm not sure where you're getting your facts from, and you clearly do not read my blog otherwise you would know I love many cupcakeries, and have generally nothing but positive things to say. Let me remind you that I love cupcakes so much that I created a blog to talk about them on a daily basis. Is that something someone who had generally nothing but negatives things to say would do? No. I love the Strawberry cupcakes at B&W, I like the S’mores cupcakes at Lola's, I love the little red velvet cupcakes at Starbucks, I love the Peanut Butter Chocolate cupcakes at Lavender Moon, and as a matter of fact, I loved the Brownie cupcake from Couture Cupcakes before I tried the frozen one at ACKC. I am sure if I tasted the unfrozen one again, I would love it just as much as I did the first time.

I get the feeling you are either friends with Couture Cupcakes or have a vested interest in them; lighten up. Stop being so sensitive, stop making things up, stop putting words in my mouth, and check your facts before making a comment as ridiculous as that. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I welcome all of it, positive or negative, but feel free to leave your name next time around so we could understand who you are and why you're so worked up.
