Sweet Times at Trophy Cupcakes: Art and Cake in June!

There are so many reasons to be excited about Seattle's Trophy Cupcakes during the month of June.

First: they're multiplying! Their second location, which is a small but sweet space in the University Village, is slated to open either this Friday or next monday. Having attended a preview soiree last weekend (jealous?), we can attest that it's gonna be awesome.

Second: they've got a sweet new suite of artwork for sale! The CakeSpy show has ended (if you'd like to shop for some of the items from the show, visit the CakeSpy shop!), but there is a new batch of cupcake art up by another awesome Seattle artist, Jessixa Bagley. Cupcakes and Robots are her game (you may remember the CakeSpy feature on her a while back); the artist reception will be this Wednesday, June 3 at 6:00 p.m. at the flagship Wallingford location.

Third: They've got a sweet new summer flavor! It's a summery and nostalgic take on a classic: Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes w/ Brown Sugar Buttercream. When you peel off the wrapper, you'll find the pineapple lurking at the bottom of the cake as a little sweet surprise! It will be on show at the artwalk, and regularly available on Fridays.

Pineapple upside down cake is my favorite. Wow, that cupcake is so creative and gorgeous. You made my day by sharing this :)

Oh yum! That sounds perfect for summer *tries not to drool*

Butter, Dallas and Bento: Thanks! It really is a summery, drool-inducing type of flavor, isn't it?

Wow, these look incredible! I'm going to attempt to recreate what looks like some very skillful icing this weekend! Bound to be disastrous, but it looks worth a try!

What a brilliant solution to keep people from abandoning the bottom of the cupcake and just eating the top with the frosting! (not that I would ever do that...)

Just found your blog - - LOVE IT!

Actually, I love a lot of things about it/you.
1. Trophy cupcakes = amazing! Always nice to see a post about their expensive delights.
2. Checked out your etsy shop and almost died laughing at the cupcake/honey hole print! I love the honey hole - - it's so Seattle! But a little bit like an "insider" joke. :)
3. The how (not) to mail a cupcake is the absolute best post I've ever seen! Makes me want to do a cupcake exchange with Jasmine of AnExperimentWithPoverty!!
4. Your spin on Warhol's campbell's soup is amazing!! Can I buy one?? I didn't see it through your etsy shop. Email me and perhaps you can avoid the etsy/paypal fees!!
