I don’t know if I mentioned this earlier, but this weekend I plan on hitting Trophy Cupcakes in Seattle! This will be my first-ever trip to an actual cupcake shop and I can hardly wait. (I’m most anxious to try their chocolate peanut butter one! Slurrrrp!)
(Seriously. Cupcakes? Me? Helloooo!!!)
Here are some additional, scrumptious looking sites (and locations!) I heard about just this morning: (Note that these are all in Washington state)
Simply Sweet Cupcakes – Brand new shop in Snohomish!
Hello, Cupcake –Located in Tacoma
Indulge Cupcakes & Espresso –Located in Sumner
New York Cupcakes – Located in Bellevue (Crossroads)
Cupcake Royale –Four Seattle locations (Capitol Hill, Ballard, Madrona, West Seattle)
Trophy Cupcakes – Three locations (Wallingford Center, University Village, The Bravern)
You wanna know what I was just thinking? That it would be absolutely fabulous to go on a cupcake shop tour over the summer! Think about it! I (okay, and the family too…sheesh) could visit all these amazing shops, sample their delicious wares, and rate each one. It’d be the greatest road trip ever! Not only that, but I could easily turn it into some sort of homeschool field trip meets home economics meets physical education (ie: how many workouts does Mom need today?) experiment! ;-]
I know I for one, would have a total blast.
Oh, one more thing. Here’s a fabulous blog that lists a ton of cupcake shops across the country: Cupcakes Take The Cake. On the right hand side bar there’s a “New York City Cupcakes” list, followed by “Cupcakes In Other US Cities”. Scroll through and see which shops are located near you!
