"You Have to Try This Bacon Cupcakes at Buzz. Open a box of these Buzz Bakery treats and you're greeted with the overwhelming aroma of crispy-fried bacon. The experience is as discordant as it sounds -- until you try one.
The cupcakes themselves, as it turns out, are actually quite tasty. Peanut butter frosting flecked with itty bits of bacon tops a simple moist chocolate cake. It's a marriage of salty and sweet that had all four of our testers wishing only for more bacon in the icing. Seriously.
Buzz pastry chef Josh Short is the mad scientist behind the dessert, which is offered at the Alexandria bakery through at least the end of August. For him, the earthy flavors in the dark chocolate, peanut butter and applewood-smoked bacon tie the cupcake together. For us, the peanut butter played a crucial role, bridging the chasm between breakfast meat and chocolate cake. The cupcake is a food dare -- an I-bet-you-won't-eat-this challenge. If you're a bacon fan, you should."
The cupcakes are $2.75 each, and Buzz Bakery is located at 901 Slaters Lane in Alexandria, Virginia. So if you want to try one, you better hurry! Only 13 days left!!

To celebrate their mutual birthday, Obama surprised Thomas with a plate of cupcakes from Baked & Wired while leading the press in singing “Happy Birthday." Obama also reportedly ordered one of B&W's famous pies (Pecan Pie) for himself to enjoy later on. I haven't tried the Pecan Pie, but I was able to sample some of the other pie flavors at the Washingtonian Magazine Best of Party last month and they were great!

Bush an over-the-top birthday party in a balloon decorated “Oval Office.” An Obama-theme cupcake tower from Georgetown Cupcake — complete with presidential seals and birthday candles — was served to the party-hat wearing wax figures amid a sea of balloons and a nine-foot tall balloon column.
