Trophy Cupcakes – Seattle

Posted in Dessert and Pastries with tags , , , , , , , , on December 31, 2008 by belltowngirl

A couple years ago, I was curious as to what was all the hype with Trophy Cupcakes.  Well, about one year ago…I have added another memorable chapter in my life…THE best cupcakes in Seattle.  Located in Wallingford Center, a variety of cupcakes are on display, party favors galore, and a dainty eating area in the corner.  One bite into this cupcake – omg…the soft and creamy frosting combined with the moist cupcake…perfection.  On certain days they offer different flavors ranging from Chocolate Graham Cracker(Mon and Sat) to Triple Coconut(Tues, Thurs, and Sat).  The cupcakes that are available every day are Red Velvet, Chocolate Vanilla, Vanilla Chocolate, Triple Chocolate, and Vanilla Vanilla($2.99 each).

Quite suprisingly, I have yet to eat a cupcake that I didn’t like at Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle and I have tried mostly every single one – there are at least 20 different flavors.  My cult favs are Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Cafe Au Lait, and Triple Coconut.  The Red Velvet is made with buttermilk cupcake with hints of cocoa, and topped with yummy cream cheese frosting – A very unique and tasty flavor.  As for the Carrot Cake, don’t get carried away if it sounds too healthy.  The frosting on this Carrot cupcake makes you forget about it – I am serious.  Soft cream cheese frosting with a moist carrot cake with walnuts and little bits of shredded carrot.  Trust me, I never liked carrot cake until I tried this. 

Onwards, the Cafe Au Lait – coffee fans out there….read on.  A moist coffee cupcake topped with Vanilla Buttercream with sprinkles of French Coffee.  The coffee is not overpowering and the vanilla buttercream complements it perfectly.  Now, saving the best for last, the Triple Coconut – OMG.  I’ll do my best to describe this…Not too sweet, but the icing is to die for…generous coconut shavings with coconut buttercream and a moist cupcake.  The icing is perfection at its best!  All in all, the best foods in life are indescribable – imo.  You just need to try out Trophy Cupcakes for yourself…Enjoy!
