Over the past year there has been a glut of cupcakeries opening, and I have meant for the longest time to get to the bottom of which one is best. For once and for all, who has the best cupcake?! Can Baked & Wired hold its own? Or do the upstarts Georgetown Cupcake, Hello Cupcake and Red Velvet have it beat? Can CakeLove, DC's original cupcakery and the one that spawned all the imitators, still compete? Or has the old-timer been replaced?

There was only one way to answer my questions: CUPCAKE MADNESS! I gathered up nine committed friends, mapped out a course and wrote up some basic judging criteria.
Folks, I made a bracket. And if you scroll down, you can also see the judging sheet. You, too, can play along!! Cupcake Bracket
The bracket turned out to be a tiny bit flawed -- I'll get to that at the end. But in the meantime, I'll be posting for the next couple weeks about each cupcakery, our thoughts and notes, our likes and dislikes, leading up to the tasty two, and ultimately, the Cupcake Champion. Who will take home the title?! Place your bets in the comments.
