Cupcake Royale – Capitol Hill, Seattle

Posted on: Wednesday 18 May 2011

There’s a cupcake bakery near where I worked in Sydney that was my go-to for during the week catering. Birthday morning tea for a colleague? BabyCakes by Renee! Nibbles for book club? BabyCakes by Renee! Neighbourhood meeting? BabyCakes by Renee! I love Renee’s BabyCakes – they’re bite-size morsels of bliss and small means more! I had cupcakes on my mind and despite the ominous grey clouds, I was determined to trek to Cupcake Royale. The brightly furnished and spacious interior is a sharp contrast to the gloomy sky. It makes for a cheerful place to stop and enjoy a cupcake.

There was a selection of colourfully decorated cupcakes displayed at the counter and after much deliberation, I chose a vanilla one with pink buttercream frosting and studded with shredded coconut. The cupcake is moist and light, and vanilla bean is speckled throughout. The coconut frosting is rich and cloying, so much so that I had to scrape off about two-thirds of it. It definitely satiated my cupcake craving, although I probably should have shared this sweet treat!

Here’s the delightfully whimsical description of the Coconut Bunny from the website.

Found only in the remote wilds of Cupcania, this elusive treat is rounded up each morning by our elite team aboard. Its delicious vanilla cake is then hand-frosted with a fluffy tail of coconut buttercream. Animal lovers, rest easy. They’re just cupcakes. Devour at will.
