Sticky Fingers, Washington, D.C.

The first part of my family’s college visiting tour has come to a close. As we were about to leave Washington, D.C., I emphatically stated “we are not leaving without visiting Sticky Fingers!” My son replied “this is turning into the ‘Vegan American Princess Tour’ instead of a college tour.” I said “yes, it is and we are going to try Sticky Fingers, the 2x Winner of Cupcake Wars!”


Off we went to the Sticky Fingers Bakery located in the Columbia Heights section of Washington, D.C. at 1370 Park Road NW. My son quickly stopped complaining after he devoured his Cinnamon Sticky Bun.


There were so many brunch, lunch and bakery items to choose from, but I ultimately decided to order a box of six delectable cupcakes including two Classic Vanilla cupcakes, one Peanut Butter Fudge, one Coconut Delight, one Cookies ‘n Cake, and one Red Velvet.

After eating the amazing Coconut Delight cupcake with its light and creamy coconutty frosting, I decided to take a bite out of each of the remaining flavors. One was more delicious than the next, but I would have to say that the Coconut Delight and the Peanut Butter Fudge were my favorites.

On the way out, I noticed this award displayed on the wall…


Naturally, I ordered a Vegan BLT “to go” for the road. I didn’t get a photo of my delicious Tempeh “BLT” because I ate it in a dark car late at night; however, I promise you that it deserved PETA’s award for one of the “Top 10 Vegan BLTs” in the country!

Eating the Sticky Fingers’ cupcakes was a heavenly experience, and I highly recommend that you visit this wonderful eatery if you happen to be in the Washington, D.C. area. You can also order a cupcake gift for someone you care about or for yourself on Sticky Fingers’ website and 20% of the proceeds will go directly to support the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. Other gifts you could buy include cookies, brownies, travel mugs and ginger dog treats. I have my eye on a Sticky Fingers’ cookbook.

Anyway, I amazed myself that I was able to write this post from my I Pad. I think I should quit while I’m ahead. On a final note, let me say that you haven’t yet lived until you’ve tried a Sticky Fingers’ cupcake!


  1. I have blogged on both my ipad and iphone, and I understand the challenges. Good job.

    I hope to be in DC sometime, if only to try Sticky Fingers. Those cupcakes look wonderful.

    • Thanks so much for visiting the site, Debbie! I don’t think I have the guts to blog from my I Phone. The Sticky Fingers cupcakes were really amazing!

  2. If there are any Austin colleges on your to visit list, you’ll have to get a cupcake here and compare!

    • Actually, Lizz, Austin is not on our itinerary this week, but my son is very interested in visiting the University of Texas in Austin, so we may be there in the near future. Of course, I would be compelled to compare cupcakes!
