Ladies and Gentlemen...Elvis has entered the building.

Tiny guitar not included.

The Velvet Elvis, that is! In honor of what would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday on January 8th, we've come up with our own version of his favorite peanut butter and banana sandwich. Our January Cupcake of the Month is a moist banana cake, topped with a rich peanut butter chocolate fudge frosting, and a sweet and crunchy little banana chip. So throw on your blue suede shoes and shake it on over to Cupcake Royale on January 1st to try our cupcake fit for The King.

In the meantime, here are some more photos.

And a banana was his crown.

Elvis impersonators. They're everywhere!

Elvis' babies!

The King lives! NOM!

Baby Crazy!

Crazy for New Year's babies, that is. Well, we're all excited about New Year's babycakes, to be exact. To help you ring in 2010 the Royale way, we'll be serving up little baby versions of our delicious new Red Velvet cake AND our wildly popular Salted Caramel. That's right folks. Order up some of the these New Year's babies for your celebration, and get the year off on the right foot. We've got New Year's Baby 6 packs for $8.10 and New Year's Baby 12 packs for $14.50.

And for those of you who take your cupcakes in full-sized form, we have these precious little baby toppers in assorted plastic ethnicities.

And for those of you with a soft spot for Rankin & Bass specials, here's their version of Baby New Year...playing with a dragon. While floating down a stream.

Have your dessert, and drink it too.

Mmm. Port. Image from the Quady Winery website.

Oh geez. Delicious, freshly baked cupcakes paired with Andrew Quady dessert wines! Sounds like one sweet shindig to us. We're super excited to be part of 12th and Olive Wine Shop's Sunday tasting this weekend! Come on by and sip on some fine dessert wines from Andrew Quady, then continue to fine tune that sweet tooth with a cupcake from Cupcake Royale. 12th and Olive is all about the tastings. Andrew Quady is all about the dessert wines. And you KNOW we're all about the cupcakes. This iron triad of goodness comes together to form one delicious dessert-themed event. Be there!

Grande. Sassy. Steel-y. Dan?

Still got some Christmas shopping to do? Duh. If you're like us, you probably haven't even started. It's cool. We got you covered. Come on in and pick up a few of these babies: The Grande Stainless Steel Coffee Tumbler. This stainless steel stallion of coffee carriage holds 15 oz of hot beverage goodness inside, and has a rad new design outside.

Sassy cupcake saying. Delicious Vérité coffee. And your first drink is FREE!

That's right. This sweet gift comes with a free coffee drink for maximum giving joy. Made with love, using Stumptoxn beans, and totally on the house. For just $16.95 (plus that free coffee everyone's talkin' about), you can go ahead and get a few, and get to checkin' folks off that Christmas list of yours.

While you're here, don't forget to treat yourself to a Figgy Pudding and/or Eggnog cupcake. You deserve it.

The Royale Tannenbaums

Oh Christmas tree!
Oh Christmas treeeee!
How tasty are thy branches!

Well, this is, after all, a cupcake tree. A five-tier pedestal stocked with mouth-wateringly festive cupcakes from Cupcake Royale. The perfect touch for your holiday party, at home or the office. To order one of these arboreal confections, give a call to 206.883.7656.

That's not the only tree we're ooo-ing and aah-ing at this holiday season. Check out the sparkly new digs over at our Capitol Hill café.

She's a beaut! We can think of no better way to make merry than to head on over and sit next to this here Christmas tree, in all it's sparkling fifties-style holiday glory, while sippin' on a piping hot gingerbread latte and treating yourself to an eggnog cupcake. Very merry, indeed.

Cute couple

We won't try to give it one of those inane couples' combo names like Bennifer or Brangelina, (mostly cuz we can't think of one that's funny) but it's kinda like that. Cappuccino + Cupcakes. A match made in caffeine + sugar heaven. However, this hot little item stands no chance of a tragically public break-up, and we know you won't be seeing these two on the cover of Us Weekly any time soon. Although, Cupcake could make the summer beach bodies page. She looks good.

So, what are we talking about? A Cupcake Royale gift pack, of course! It's the holiday season, the season of giving, the most wonderful time of the year! And we've got you covered. Give sweetly with our Cappuccino + Cupcakes Gift Pack. Sipping is oh-so-sweet when you give two vintage-inspired, pink European porcelain cup and saucer sets with two free cupcake cards. And at $20 each, (You save $9. $9!!! Que ganga!) you can afford to sweeten up a few of your friends this season.

It's only available in stores, but lucky for you, we've got four of those, so come on into the one in your neighborhood today, and get your holiday shop on! With a piping hot minty mocha and a Figgy Pudding cupcake, holiday shopping was never so enjoyable.
