I said I was "OVER" cupcakes, only because they are everywhere. The truth is, I love a good cupcake every now-and-then. To be honest, my favorite flavor is probably vanilla with vanilla frosting and sprinkles...no joke. Well, thanks to the Strawberry Festival in Bellevue, the Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake was born. This is a keeper!!! It's so good. You need to try it before it goes away, maybe forever...(sad). I have actually been a fan of Cupcake Royale for a long time. I've spent many Sunday mornings at Cafe Verite in Leschi and Cupcake Royale cupcakes have been there for as long as I remember. There are quite a few other Cupcake Royales now and I frequent the super new one on Capitol Hill and the quirky one in Bellevue more and more these days.
OK, I like vanilla cupcakes, but with so many choices at Cupcake Royale, who wants vanilla? Not me.
I know there are many other cupcake options around, but give Cupcake Royale a try, it's the BEST!!! Every Cupcake Royale shop is different and adorable in their own way and they all carry every flavor.
My favorite cupcakes are the Triple Threat, Royale with Cheese, Lemon Drop, Carrot Cake, Coconut Bunny...YUMMY!!!
