The cupcakes and cookies at Baked & Wired are huge, giving you substantial bang for your cupcake buck. The baked goods are delicious, perfectly balancing the cake to frosting ratio. Cupcakes not your thing? Then opt for a cookie-sandwich, featuring rich frosting or ice cream centers. The gingersnap-lemon buttercream cookie is refreshing and zesty without being too sweet.

The location is also perfect, just off the bustling M Street and bordered by the historic canal. Just a short walk away is the riverfront, with plenty of places to enjoy your sweets and do some people watching. Or stick around and sit at the shop itself. Seating may be limited, but the no-frills, artsy decor is perfect for digging into your cupcake.
