If you were at College Park Day, you know what I'm taking about.
Red velvet... peanut butter cup... snicker doodle... If you were at College Park Day, chances are you couldn't resist the temptation of Curbside Cupcakes.

I'm not sure I can decide between the two (yes, two) cupcake flavors I tried... but maybe you can make up your mind. What was your favorite Curbside Cubcake flavor? We know it's a D.C. food truck, but we hope Pinky 3 (or 1 or 2) will find a reason to come by again. As one Facebooker wrote to Curbside Cupcakes after Saturday: Prince George's County loves cupcakes!
