Baked & Wired Report

At my job, we always conduct research on food we want to include at our event. As many of you in the DC Metro area may have noticed, we have had a rash of cupcakeries pop up. My first report will be on Baked & Wired, a great that started out focused on coffee and baked goods, but has really expanded its cake line. My wonderful boss was in Georgetown on Friday and surprised me with the latest issue of Town and Country Weddings and this adorable box:Inside were these little beauties: Red Velvet and Strawberry from Baked & Wired in Georgetown.Note the adorable pearl of sugar on the red velvet. Aren't they so sweet? I love the little paper "wings."
So, how did they taste? Delicious. The cakes were denser than some cakes I've had. The frosting not too rich.

Red Velvet had a cream cheese frosting that wasn't too cream cheese nor too sweet. His cake wasn't too sweet and rich like you'd be afraid some Red elvets would be.

Strawberry was very succesful as a Strawberry. Bits of strawberry inside her cake gave it an authentic fruit taste wihout being too fruity. She also was reminiscent of the red berries in Capn' Crunch Cereal - but in a god way.

All in all, very well done. I also love the presentation of the cakes. They'e not overly done up so that you'd question whether the goods were as good as their looks and the paper wrapper makes them easier to eat.
