Wake Up with FREE Muffins!

Between 8 and 11am on Tuesday, February 1, stop by Red Velvet Cupcakery in Dupont for a sampling of their new muffin line – which will be available for purchase every morning – including these Banana Nut Muffins (think roasted bananas, toasted black walnuts and rolled oats).

Other flavors include Scrumptious Apple Bran, a heart-healthy mix of raisins and apples, a hint of fresh pineapple and warming spices and Bits of Heaven, a classic chocolate chip recipe topped with streusel.  In the coming months, the store will offer additional seasonal flavors, like apple cinnamon and blueberry.  Muffins are priced at $2.65 each and $30.00 per dozen.
