  1. My favorite is Trophy Cupcakes. Not only do they have great flavors and cake, but the frosting ratio is much better than all the other places in Seattle.

      When you say "The frosting ratio is much better", you mean they put a ridiculous amount of frosting on, right?

      Too much for me...

      It's become a little passe, but I'm still a Royale guy.

    2. A meeting took me to 4th Ave this week and afterwards a friend and I wanted to sit and chat. Next to our meeting place was the The Yellow Leaf Cupcake Co. Super cute (small) place. My friend and I split the coconut and the almond cupcakes (unfortunately, she's allergic to chocolate) - they were easily the best cupcakes I've had. Super moist cake and icing that was amazingly light. I asked the owner (?) what the top 3 were and he pointed to the Tomato Soup, German Chocolate, and Red Velvet.

      Great tea selection. No espresso - but french press coffee.

      1. I vote for "Trophy" cupcakes....creative & delicious & not toooo sweet....and just enough icing. The 'Royale' cupcakes were disappointing IMO...not enough flavor in the cake and lackluster, sugary & rich too-much buttercream. Their salted caramel cupcakes tasted awful...and they were a bit stale in texture.

          I agree on both counts. Trophy cupcakes are the best and Cupcake Royale are way too sweet with not a lot of flavor.

        2. Ive tried Trophy Cupcakes
          and it was really good!!!
          the frosting was amazing!
          I liked the
          Strawberry Cheese Cake
          Humming Bird
          Upside down pineapple
          those are the ones i liked
          red velvet was alright but it wasnt the best
