Local Bakery Will Compete in "Cupcake Wars"

Not  doughnuts
So, I'll bet $10US that there will be a gourmet doughnut shop in DC by, say, March 1, 2012. I know it. We had our falafel thing, then froyo, then cupcakes. And sort of had a hot dog thing, too. Doughnuts are next, mark my words.

However, before that happens, remember that we are still on cupcakes. And local bakery Sticky Fingers has baked its way onto one of the Food Network's competition based cooking shows, Cupcake Wars

The Columbia Heights business just underwent a mini makeover with a new interior paint job, new logo, name and website. Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats is the new name that reflects its diverse menu of cupcakes and iced cinnamon buns, but also coffee, sandwiches, brunch food and even, yes, hot dogs. And the best part, it's all vegan! The little vegan bakery originally opened in Adams Morgan, but really blossomed after expanding the menu and moving to a larger store at 1370 Park Rd NW.

New name, new logo
The Cupcake Wars episode airs next Tuesday March 8, at 9:00pm. They're having a viewing party for the show at Breadsoda in Glover Park -- 2233 Wisconsin Ave NW. That starts at 8:00pm and in a cool twist, they'll be serving cupcake and cocktail pairings to commemorate the event. Pretty cool.

I'm a big Sticky Fingers fan, so I'll be watching and rooting for the home team. Good luck!
