The Sweet Lobby in Washington DC knows how to stay on top of the waves. First, it was their sensational cupcakes meant to delight all the senses. Then, they expanded to Parisian macarons, another tasty trend sweeping the nation. Finally, The Sweet Lobby offered special Obama and Romney themed baked goods for Election Day 2012 — they've truly capitol-ized on their location near Capitol Hill. As for the cupcakes, each is baked daily, topped with decadent, yet light, frostings. The Daily Meal's must-try flavor: Ginger-White Chocolate (a vanilla cupcake, infused with fresh ginger, topped with a whipped white chocolate-fresh ginger frosting and finished with white-chocolate dipped candied ginger). — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012

Foursquare Tips
Go for the macarons. Creamy sweet potato is unique, the passion fruit/milk chocolate heady. Other great picks include black-and-white bubbly, a peanut butter and jelly, or a cheese-laced variety.

The macarons (not to be confused with macaroons) are delicious! But also try a "Cupcake Wars" winning cupcake!
