Arlington has a new mobile baked goods vendor.

The “Sweet Fleet” truck is making its public debut today in Ballston, Rosslyn, Courthouse and Shirlington. The truck features cupcakes, cookies and other treats baked by Jason Reaves, a pastry chef and an upcoming competitor on TV’s Food Network Challenge.

Prices range from $3.00 to $3.50 for individual cupcakes and $2.00 for cookies. The truck will serve “all of Arlington,” managers say. You can follow its location on Facebook and Twitter.

    • Jordan

      Because it sure seems that way.

  • Tre

    It’s… happening… The war has gone mobile… everyone to your scythed chariots!

  • TGEoA

    I hear the 2INPINK license plate is available. Looks perfect for these girls.


    • CW

      I wonder if the complementary license plate to that is available? Maybe for use by a roto-rooter truck?

    • Danny

      Easy now…I think we should keep this clean

  • CW

    Had to include that “all of Arlington” comment just to stir the pot, didn’t you? 🙂 How many times do you think they’ll venture down to the Pike before retracting that statement?

    • TGEoA

      The truck will make it down the pike. When they go out of business it will end up in some parking lot.

    I saw them cruising in rosslyn trying to find a parking spot. in the 20 minutes I was out, they were unsuccessful.

    also, how many f’n cupcake trucks do we need? I don’t even get it, at least make them muffin sized or something.

  • Jabba

    It was getting so tedious lumbering over to the the retail cupcakes. Now if they could just deliver to my bedside, I wouldn’t have to pause the tiVo to go downstairs.

  • This is out of control.

  • novasteve

    Wow, i had no idea cupcakes cost that much money. That’s the going rate?

  • John Stephens

    They won’t be as good as Curbside and appear more expensive, so what does it matter?

  • Aaron

    too. much. pink.

  • CK

    So tired of the “cupcake fad”…oh, and the “fro-yo fad”, too!

  • BlueSkies

    Bring ’em to the Pike! Why should DC get all the curbside service?

  • Henry Spencer

    They were in CC last week; they tasted good, but a couple were stale. Kinda small compared to their competitors.

    • PhilL

      But how were the cupcakes?

      • wat

        hah, nice

  • Joliet Jake

    How much for the little girl? How much for the women?

    • Danny

      Really? Is that what you’re saying? Do people have to be this disgusting in Arlington? You should be ashamed.

  • R0bespierre

    Hey you know that Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times?” News like this makes Arlington seem like the least cursed place on the planet.

  • Danny

    I had them and I thought they were amazing! The girl was super nice and I think it’s awesome there is finally a variety in the cupcake food truck business. I also think it’s nice to finally have food trucks here rather than JUST DC.

  • Lynn

    Well I thought these cupcakes were amazing…..for all of you who want to pass judgement on folks trying a new venture…. then don’t buy them and certainly don’t make judgements….. Here is a couple of people trying to get ahead in providing a great service of fun cupcakes. As your mother said if you don’t have anything nice to say…….These ladies were great, polite and did their best to help serve the huge line that was outside today. When they come back I will certainly be there to support them. Thanks SWEET FLEET for making my day. PS I enjoy the pink truck I think it looks great.
    Can’t wait to see the new flavors that you bring.

    After my visits to Buzz and Sprinkles, I think I am done with cupcakes for a while.

    • RosRes

      Try Bakeshop. They’re the best by far.

  • Abe Froman

    After trying Sprinkles on M St and Buzz in Ballston, I think I am done with cupcakes for a while. They were horrible. I think some of the suckers need to be shaken out of the market.

  • Cyrus

    Yes please. I’d like a cupcake too.

  • Del Sneddon

    Only in America. I do not understand Food Network’s obsession with a fecking cupcake. My 11 year old niece can make them. It’s a CUPCAKE. Grow up.
