So far we have visited Cupcake Royale, Yellow Leaf Cupcake, and Macrina bakery.
Here are our thoughts so far:
Cupcake Royale: 4 out of 5 stars
We bought the 6 pack there and tried a few different kinds. They were pretty moist with an occasional dry bite. We went there twice and the second time tried the mini cupcakes, which were a great 1 bite kind with yummy pink frosting. We would like to see some filling options and maybe a little bigger cupcake. The frosting at Cupcake Royale is the BEST by far!!!
Yellow Leaf: 2 out of 5 stars
The tops right under the frosting was pretty dry and we felt like each one tasted like a tub of butter. The service was good but not a huge fan of the cupcakes. The appearance was good and the size was ok. The prices were high and I am not sure I would look forward to going back at that rate. They also don't make many of each kind so if you go in the afternoon you don't get much selection.
Macrina: 1 1/2 out of 5 stars
Sad thing is that we don't even remember what they tasted like and we went less than a week ago. Both of us were unhappy with our selections and found the entire cupcake to be dry and not very flavorful.
If you know of great cupcake places in Seattle that we haven't covered, please leave a comment with the name and location! We will check it out and let you know what we think....
