Occasionally Cake, Alexandria, VA

Occasionally Cake alexandria 30th birthday cake for a shopping and wine loving girlAfter driving to my dad’s house near Mt. Vernon a few months ago, something caught my eye… CAKE.  There was a storefront on Route 1 that I had not seen before: Occasionally Cake.  I frantically looked for spot to turn around and was excited about my new find.  Turns out they are about to celebrate their 1 year anniversary!

This is a small store with direct view of the kitchen and a few seats to sit and enjoy a cupcake….or two.  I met Sabrina Campbell, cake designer and owner, and we chatted a bit about their cakes and cupcakes.  Fortunately, I had a surprise 30th birthday party coming up for one of best friends and decided to give her a try.  Right then and there we sketched all of the elements of what I wanted and it was spot on and it is all edible.

They have what seems like an encyclopedia of their own original cake flavors (honestly, 6 plus pages) to choose from. I picked up some cupcakes to taste test and they were good.  Sabrina’s artistic work is great and that is what really makes the cake spectacular.  Her attention to detail was really incredible.

Also take a look at their wedding cakes and you can check out their gallery online.

Happy Cake Hunting!
