While the cupcake trend may be feeling a bit tired, the alcohol-infused treats from Washington's Crunkcakes
pack a new punch. Co-owners Faith Alice Sleeper and Raychel Sabath serve the treats at events and bars around town. The cheekily named cupcakes include the Fat Cat, made with D.C. Brau Penn Quarter Porter chocolate cake infused with bourbon, filled with salted bourbon caramel, and topped with salted bourbon caramel buttercream and a pretzel garnish.
