It's truly the most wonderful time of year in Seattle.
No, not Christmas, jerk: it's time for the yearly debut of the Deathcake Royale.
If this is death by chocolate, then bring on the gurney: this little brickster of a chocolate cake may have a hefty price tag, (at $6.66 it's definitely devilish), but be assured that it's an investment in pure pleasure: gorgeously decadent, comprised of a chocolate trifecta: Royale's chocolate cake, Stumptown Coffee ganache, and Theo Chocolate Decadence.
Dude. This cake is good.
This cake is served in a cubelike form designed to be "shared by lovers and loved by haters"; technically, it is meant to be shared, but one couldn't be blamed for downing it solo.
Ready for some Deathcake Royale? Start your calisthenics now, because this baby's making its debut on January 28, and will be available through February 14 at all Cupcake Royale locations; for directions and hours, visit cupcakeroyale.com.
