Tracking the Elusive Cupcake Truck

I am a big fan of cupcakes.  Cake not so much, but cupcakes yes!  It's related to the ratio of cake to frosting.  In my view, the cake is really just a vehicle for the frosting. 

Anyway, I first heard about Curbside Cupcakes (which I call the Cupcake Truck) a few months ago.  The pink truck trolls downtown D.C. and Capitol Hill, selling (surprise) cupcakes.  As far as I'm concerned, what's not to like: cupcakes in a pink truck?!?!

They post a schedule on their website of where they'll be and Twitter about their whereabouts in real time.  They only stay in each location for a short time, so you have to get there on schedule.  Despite the fact that I have been obsessively tracking the movements of the Cupcake Truck, I keep missing it--much to my extreme disappointment. 

Well, I just checked the calendar, and the Cupcake Truck is scheduled to be a block away from my office tomorrow, and for a change, I have no meetings or calls scheduled for the time the truck is supposed to arrive.  So the Cupcake Truck is On My Calendar.  I can taste the cupcake goodness already!
