Strawberry Cupcake Festival starts July 1st!

Strawberry Festival 4 Pack

The 4th of July is just around the corner which means that summer can officially begin in Seattle. To celebrate, we're having a Strawberry Festival during the month of July! Our neighbors to the north, Skagit Sun, have supplied us with locally-sourced, organic strawberries that we incorporated into each of this month's four cupcake flavors. Our bakers have been busily consulting with grandmothers and country fair winners alike to come up with the most delicious flavor combinations and we think you'll love them as much as we do!

Strawberry 66

Strawberry 66 is our classic vanilla buttercake topped with Strawberry buttercream. The ingredients for this delicious cupcake are over 66% local, which we think makes it the most local cupcake around. Frank Bruni would be proud.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry starts with our moist chocolate cake, then we add our strawberry buttercream and dip it into fine chocolate vermicelli.

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake has a sweet strawberry puree baked into a vanilla cake with a whipped cream strawberry frosting and topped with graham cracker crumbs.

Strawberry Velvet

Strawberry Velvet updates our classic red velvet cake with a whipped cream strawberry frosting.

Nothing says summer like strawberries so pick some up for your next picnic or party! We make it easy to try them all with our Strawberry Festival 4-pak! $3.50 each or the 4-pak for $13.50.

Call 206-883-7656 or visit to pre-order your Strawberry Festival four pack for pick-up tomorrow! Happy summer, y'all!

It Gets Better...

The Gay cupcake

When selecting a charity to support with their The Gay cupcake, choosing the It Gets Better Project was a no-brainer for Cupcake Royale owner Jody Hall. Founded by Dan Savage and his partner Terry Miller, the It Gets Better Project seeks to give hope to LGBT youth by letting them know that life gets better. Their video went viral and soon everyday folks (and celebrities and politicians, too) were making videos of support.

Cupcake Royale donated 50% of all proceeds from sales of The Gay (and Baby Gay). They set a lofty goal to raise $5,000 during June but after a week or so, it became clear that they were going to quickly reach that goal and they upped the ante to $10,000! Dan Savage said, “Cupcake Royale's support for the It Gets Better Project is personally gratifying—I'm a regular customer, an addict, and a fan—and it will make a huge difference to LGBT youth throughout the country. We can't thank Jody and her team enough for their generosity."

Sold only during the month of June, The Gay Cupcake featured Cupcake Royale’s classic vanilla buttercake and vanilla buttercream, along with a healthy infusion of rainbow confetti in the cake, rainbow sprinkles and a proud rainbow sugar topper.

Jody Hall adds, “It’s amazing that we were able to do this, and use our “super powers” for good! By selling this cupcake and asking the community to join us in our efforts, we are able to make a great impact to IGBP. I’m so proud to be able to galvanize our community and customers around making a difference, and send a huge “thanks” out to our customers for jumping in!”
