0607 Buzz Bakery Love

I was going to tell you about the convenience food I had for dinner tonight after picking Shane up from the airport, but really, you don’t care about that. What you do care about it this:

Buzz Cupcake Love

This morning Shane texted me from DC to say that he was going to Buzz with Mike and Sipes, and did I want anything?  One of everything, please!  Except that would be difficult to carry for the rest of the day in DC, followed by airport security and the flight back to Detroit.  Instead I asked for my two favorite things from Buzz: their ham, cheese, and scallion scone and the Buzz cupcake (pictured above).  I’d show you the scone, but by the time Shane got home, it was a little on the flat side.  Not that I’m complaining.

The Buzz cupcake is the signature cupcake on the Buzz menu – chocolate, with espresso buttercream and a dusting of Oreo crumbs.  The cupcake is much taller than pictured, but I was too excited about this favorite treat to remember to take a picture before I started eating.  The cake is dense and crumbly – so good that I couldn’t let the crumbs that stuck to the paper go to waste.  The frosting was thicker and sweeter than I remembered, but that may have been that by the time I got to the frosting, most of the cake was gone.

Did the Buzz cupcake live up to my memories of it?  Definitely.  Am I glad that the 529 miles between our house and Buzz mean that this and other Buzz treats are sometimes foods? Mostly.  Do I still miss having Buzz in the neighborhood all the time?  Absolutely.

A brief list of things I miss about VA/DC

  • The Metro – not taking it to work every day, but having it as a transportation option
  • Galaxy Hut
  • Jackie + Tina + Stacey + Mark + Mike
  • Buzz (ham and cheese scone, pls, and while you’re at it, I’m out of granola)
  • Feeling like we were in the middle of things
  • Listening to WAMU (Your NPR news source in the nation’s capitol)
  • Running by the river
  • A close enough proximity to the ocean to not feel guilt-ridden when I crave seafood
  • 9:30 Club + the Black Cat
  • Baked & Wired
  • the GW Parkway
