It takes a lot of LOVE to make a cupcake ROYALE! Cupcake Royale was founded in 2003 as Seattle's first cupcake bakery and café. In fact, Cupcake Royale is the nations first cupcake bakery to open outside of NYC! So you can imagine that many of our friends and neighbors didn't know quite what to expect. Turns out, our hunch was right, and our delicious, made-from-scratch-daily cupcakes were an instant hit!
