Cupcake Royale

As my sister and I continued our eating tour of Seattle, we stumbled upon Cupcake Royale in the Capitol Hill district of the city.  While neither of us were hungry, I made her follow me into the store to see if they had any gluten free options... and they did!

We were warmly greeted by this beautiful sign and three options: chocolate chocolate cupcakes, salted caramel and chocolate cupcakes, and vanilla with chocolate.  I knew we couldn't go wrong, but I ultimately opted for the chocolate with salted caramel.  It's not a flavor I normally see offered and thought I would try something new.  Best part:  the gluten free cupcakes were less expensive than normal cupcakes!  I can't remember a time when I've seen that; normally there is a mark up!

Look at the way the light hits that cupcake... I mean, beautiful, right?  I couldn't contain myself after taking the photo and dug in.  It was absolutely deliciuos!  The salted caramel frosting was terrific and perfectly complemented the chocolate cupcake.

Cupcake Royale is definitely a winner in my book for many reasons, not least of which is the below sticker prominently displayed in the store:

Fitting, since we were in the Capitol Hill (read: gay) neighborhood of Seattle.
