Cupcake Royale

I found the cupcakes to be too dense, undercooked, and over-frosted. Not so great...

In honor of Elvis Presley's 75th birthday on January 8, 2010, the cupcake of the month was an ode to the King: banana cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting. Cupcake Royale makes regular-size as well as minis, the latter a boon for those who want to sample several flavors.

Be careful. If you hold a cupcake with too strong a grip, or even if you chomp into it willy-nilly, you run the risk of complete cake disintegration. Such tenderness might be a fault in Bakery School, but for me, there's no such thing as a too-delicate cupcake.

A photo of the salted caramel cupcake before it fell apart (above photo). Y-U-M!

Atop the carrot cupcake is classic cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate upon chocolate, a devilishly good combination.

Lemon drops and lavenders. Pretty as they were, we found them light on flavor -- an odd situation considering how full-flavored other cupcakes are.

Inside the store in Madrona: a nice place to sit and sip or connect to the internet while spilling crumbs in your keyboard.

34th Avenue is the main drag in the Madrona neighborhood, which seems like a happy-go-lucky place. Cupcake Royale, somewhat confusingly signed, is at the corner of E. Spring Street.

I kept wondering what it would be like to live near enough this place that I could stop in for cupcakes and coffee any time. Dangerous!
