Our first Red Velvet opened in Washington DC’s Penn Quarter in December 2008. // Our staff, led by ten year Gordon Restaurant Group veteran and Executive Pastry Chef Kristen Brabrook, consists of trained bakers who infuse their artistry to each cupcake. We believe in raising the standard by which people judge the quality of their food- in particular, cupcakes. Because of this conviction, we use only the highest quality ingredients available on the world stage and believe in supporting the community that has supported us. We use local dairy and other ingredients that are harvested from local area farms as much as possible. We believe that cupcakes are to be enjoyed at all ages and – more than anything else – are meant to be fun and flavorful!
