Shake Shack DC - Birthday Cake Concrete

Happy (belated) 1st birthday to the Shake Shack in Dupont Circle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My life has been very much improved by the addition of their burgers and custards in a DC location, woo.

Last Thursday afternoon, I saw this post on their Facebook wall:


Happy Birthday to the DC Shack! Thanks to our awesome fans and dedicated staff for making our first year in DC so special.

To celebrate, today only at the DC Shack we're serving up a delicious BIRTHDAY CAKE CONCRETE featuring your choice of frozen custard blended with a slice of vanilla buttercream cake from our friends at CakeLove (Half: $4.25/Reg: $6.50). Year two, here we come!

As luck would have it, I was already going to that area that night for dinner with N at Rasika's new West End location.  But let's be honest, I would've ran to Shake Shack for this concrete no matter what.

This. was. DELICIOUS.  I mean clearly you can't go wrong with cake and custard, but still.  The addition of these thin chocolate sprinkles (they really are much thinner than regular sprinkles, we decided) added a lovely texture that wasn't too crunchy/overbearing.  OMG this was so good.  And the birthday candle was such a fun little touch, haha.  What a great way to celebrate the first of many anniversaries of the DC Shake Shack!!
