Hello Cupcake Opens

Cupcakes await the first customers at Hello Cupcake

For a sweet spot in this final week of August, head to Hello Cupcake, which opens at 10 a.m. today at 1351 Connecticut Ave. NW.

I had the chance to sample a few flavors with owner Penny Karas. The fluffy icing on the peanut butter blossom (above) is seriously addictive, and the seasonal root beer flavor is a delightful surprise with spicy root beer cake topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting. I'm going for a Velvet Elvis, banana cake with peanut butter frosting, next.

There are gluten-free and vegan options on the menu, as well. Check out all the flavors here.

This shop should be called "Hello HEAVEN!!" We oohed and aahed over the four flavors we tried. My son, who doesn't even like cupcakes, said they are his new favorite food (great...).
