Cupcakes have spread across the world like a wildfire. Though recipes and style can vary, each cake is made for one person to enjoy, but can be easily shared. This cupcake trend allowed for many cupcakeries to pop up all around the United States, calling for local bakeries and big-box grocery chains adding cupcakes to their roster and small specialized boutique popping up.
Seattle’s set a craze with local shops, many of which are delightfully delicious. If you’re craving a cupcake, you may want to check out some of these. These Seattle-local cupcake bakers are delicious, wholesome, and all-occasion ready!
The Yellow Leaf Cupcake Company notes itself as a small-batch and modern bakery, specializing in cupcakes, but also offering macarons, cakes, pastries, and other desserts. Each cupcake is elaborately designed for its individual theme, some over-the-top and some relatively basic.
