Confections!! @Erin many will say salted caramel pretzel but oreo is my favorite and they open tomorrow at 11am.

I've never had Happy Eatery's cupcakes, but they sell their petit fours for $2 a piece. Selling an half-inch block of sugar for $2 sorta discouraged me from trying anything else.

I've got to try Confections, too.
Amanda Day June 18, 2012 at 09:03 PM
Confections by far the best cupcakery!!! If you thought Georgetown Cupcake was good (which I don't), you will definitely love Confections. Not a single cupcake is bad... the frosting is never to heavy and just compliments each cupcake flavor... it never over powers the cake itself. Their Red Velvet with butter cream is one of my favorites. They sell it with cream cheese frosting too.

OK, Ok I'm sold on trying Confections!
Vicky Dunne June 18, 2012 at 10:57 PM
Confections! Hands-down, no contest, we got a winner! They are THE BEST!
Vicky Dunne June 18, 2012 at 10:57 PM
I concur! Confections is the BEST!
Vicky Dunne June 18, 2012 at 10:58 PM
Blueberry is awesome. And carrot cake. And peanut butter. Unfortunately, I haven't met a cupcake at Confections that isn't great!
Jenn Adams June 19, 2012 at 02:00 AM
Confections!! Absolutely the best!
Mrs.Gut3 June 19, 2012 at 04:02 AM
Confections beats all others and besides they are always friendly,polite, and accommodating!! Great customer service!!!!

I agree with you Jamie. I was in a bind last December and went there to buy cupcakes for my husbands birthday. Had to take out a loan for the 6 cupcakes and my husbands response were that I could have made them better from a Betty Crocker box.

P.S. Is anyone going to nominate Sugar Buzz in Occoquan?
Michelle M June 19, 2012 at 01:45 PM
No! When Sugar Buzz first opened in Occoquan, I bought $8 worth of items and they charged my credit card twice. They would not return my calls on it so my bank insisted on canceling the card. What a pain over $8 worth of cupcakes. Not a fan on Sugar Buzz!

Confections has the best icing for sure!
KC June 19, 2012 at 10:20 PM
Confections! 'nuff said.
Kim Deal June 20, 2012 at 01:54 AM
I nominate Sugar Buzz in Occoquan. I am sorry they charged on person twice but accidents happen and their piña colada cupcake is wAy yummy.
Robert Adamczyk June 20, 2012 at 06:23 PM
Confections by far. Before trying confections, I didn't know what a good cupcake was.
Kristen Bankard June 21, 2012 at 04:50 AM
Confections! :) I drive all the way from North Carolina to get my cupcake fix!
Kristyn Gleason June 21, 2012 at 05:34 PM
Sugar Buzz in Occoquan. The best cupcakes and cakes. The Red Velvet is to die for
Lorelei Kennedy June 21, 2012 at 05:38 PM
Sugar Buzz!! Lighter in texture and larger in size than most cupcakes in the county. Each week new flavor and baked fresh nightly!
Kristen Swift June 21, 2012 at 07:03 PM
My favorites are the wedding cake and pink champagne, but you have to catch them on days when those are the specials. For the regular, everyday flavors, I love the peanut butter, oreo and red velvet!
Kristen Swift June 21, 2012 at 07:06 PM
Confections, hands down. Laura and her staff are so friendly and accommodating, and the customer service is wonderful. I had a craving for a cupcake that they were out of temporarily (the peanut butter and jelly), and Laura quickly whipped up some peanut butter buttercream and made me a PB&J cupcake on the spot. All of the flavors are so good, too...it seems like a lot of effort is put into perfecting the recipes for all of the cupcakes.
Natasha King June 25, 2012 at 07:35 PM
Confections. They delivered cupcakes to my daughters first birthday and the were hands down awesome
Brenda Yeager June 25, 2012 at 08:02 PM
Confections are the best and prices are very reasonable. THE BEST HANDS DOWN
Becky Schwartz Frazier June 25, 2012 at 09:13 PM
Confections is best by far - love better then georgetown - mint chocolate chip is favorite so far. Laura is great.
Brenda June 27, 2012 at 06:04 PM
Best cupcakes are at Confections in Woodbridge. The salted caramel is addictive, of 6 flavors I have tried they are all so good. Never dried out cake, the perfect amount of frosting. The staff is cordial, Laura the owner is friendly, fun and gives back to local charities. I know she has helped the boy scouts this year with donations of gift certificates or cupcakes for events. Great business, great products, and even the facebook page is fun to look at.

Persnickety Cakes in Old to Towne Manassas ROCKS! Very reasonably priced and incredibly delicious.
Maria July 05, 2012 at 03:05 PM
Persnickety in Old Town Manassas - YUM!
Teri Wright July 09, 2012 at 05:03 PM
