Trophy Cupcakes is one of Seattle's many new upscale cupcake boutiques that have been popping up since around 2005. What sets Trophy apart, however, is that their shop is amazingly beautiful. It is evident in their appearance, literature, and logo that they used a fine graphic designer to give them a truly established presence. That being said, their cupcakes (which have been featured in national magazines and on the Martha Stewart show) are little works of art that taste like heaven. In addition to standard flavors, there are daily specials like snickerdoodle, chocolate peanut butter, s'mores, and chai cardamom. They're a bit pricy, but are great to share with a friend and a cup of coffee.
