My completely unreliable memory is telling me that there were multiple types of cupcakes, cake pops, cake bites, pastries, breads and dog treats. All are baked in-house. Bread is baked daily, which gives me a great excuse to go back, buy a loaf and mellow out with some soft butter and a bottle of red wine.
But this visit was about cupcakes. We bought a dozen for $16 (six for $9, one for...I don't remember. Why would you buy only one?) Let's begin our frosting odyssey.
First, a chocolate cake with buttercream frosting: Delicious, moist, just perfect. My dad had two.

You might have noticed that there aren't 12 different cupcakes here. That's because there weren't 12 different types and we didn't try the strawberry one because strawberries cause my sister to swell up and die. Besides, how much more evidence do you need that Chesapeake Bakery makes a great cupcake? Go find out for yourself. I've already forgotten whatever it was that ruined my day. Wait. Now I remember. Good thing there is one more peanut butter cupcake.
