Holidays are for cupcakes

March 17th, 2008 by Dawn

Cupcakes seem to be the trend nowadays.  Cupcake Royale was one of the first places around Seattle, and then new places started popping up left and right.  Our favorite so far (there are a few we haven’t tried, like Wink) is Trophy Cupcakes in Wallingford.

Our introduction to Trophy was when our friends called us up about a week after the place opened, February of last year.  They said that they were going to do a cupcake tasting there to decide whether to use Trophy for their wedding cake, and would we be interested in “helping” them taste the cupcakes?  Um, of course!

Something like nine cupcakes later, the four of us were on a complete sugar high, and I was completely hooked.  All of the cupcakes are great, but I usually go for one with cream cheese frosting.  Or the Chocolate Vanilla, which is also Eric’s favorite.

Needless to say, this was our friends’ top choice for their wedding cake.  The mini cupcakes were a huge hit!

Another reason to love Trophy Cupcakes is for their special holiday cupcakes.  Today they’re offering Chocolate Guinness Stout with Irish Cream Butter Creme.  Last year, we missed out on the marshmallow Easter cupcakes, but maybe they’ll have them again later this week!

    It’s embarassing to admit that I live only a few blocks and had never sampled those fine cup cakes until Eric brought in a fine selection into the office this morning. MMMmmmm!! Thank you! 🙂
