D.C. Cupcake Decorating Contest

Hello Cupcake, a cupcakery located in Dupont Circle, held a cupcake decorating contest last Saturday challenging contestants to decorate a cupcake inspired by their favorite DC neighborhood.  The contest was open only to amateur decorators, and entrants could only consist of one cupcake, not a "diorama" of several cupcakes strung together.  Additionally, all decorations had to be handmade, edible, and made/created by the contestant.  The submissions are so creative and distinct that I'm having a hard time picking my favorite, although the tribute to Chinatown, the Metro map, and the Arborium are in my top three.
