Cupcakes: History repeats itself

The Cupcake Lounge @ 6 Byward Market Square, Ottawa, ON

Whenever N and I meet, we’d hunt for sweets. It’s become our tradition. And today we ventured to The Cupcake Lounge, our favourite cupcake joint in the city, for another sugar coma-inducing experience.

If there’s something I enjoy about visiting The Cupcake Lounge, or going on a cupcake adventure in general, it’s exploring new flavours. So whereas N decided on her usual red velvet, today I tried a newbie on the menu: the blood orange cupcake. The cake itself encompassed a nice blend of sweet, tangy, and citrus. As for the buttercream icing, it was rich and creamy, but not overly sweet.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been here. The first time I visited the shop was about three years ago, where my taste buds impelled me to opt for their almond raspberry cupcake. It was hands down the most divine cupcake I’ve had thus far in my, at the time, twenty years of fruitful existence.


First visit in summer 2011


First taste of TCL: a scrumptious almond raspberry cupcake!
