Cake Love’s Ever Expanding Bakery Empire


Mmm cake

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

If you haven’t heard of Cake Love, and you live around here, please come out of the cave and into the sweet, buttery light. Baker Warren Brown’s been all over the media scene in the last few years, after ditching his legal briefs in exchange for delicious dense cake with buttercream frosting that will cause your arteries to harden just by its mere presence in the same room.

Warren’s opening up a second shop in Silver Spring (935 Ellsworth Drive) in the coming weeks, and has just announced in an online chat that Northern Virginia will get its own Cake Love!

Warren Brown: Yes, CakeLove plans on opening in the Clarendon area in 2006. We’re excited about it and know that we have a lot of loyal customers in NoVA. We’re with ya and want to be there quickly, too!

I love seeing local businesses beat out the chains, and one place that this works best is in niche markets like bakeries and clothiers. Way to go Warren!

    Thanks very much, Tom, for posting the link to the chat. I’d forgotten that was today and I didn’t want to miss reading it!

    It’s interesting how the “cake controversy” rages on – several people still had questions about the room temperature thing. It’s amazing how people think waiting a few minutes for optimum cake eating enjoyment is an imposition. But I suppose in our instant gratification society it shouldn’t be a surprise.

    Go Warren go – we need more people willing to take the chance to open local businesses – hurrah for entrepreneurs!!
