Monday is Laura's Birthday
so I went to a cupcake shop
that I saw on Yelp.

Lots of good reviews...
Plus the lady that started it
was on the Martha Stewart Show.
So I decided to get cupcakes
for Laura's Birthday.

It was in a neighborhood of Seattle
called Wallingford.

I always get a little anxious
going to new neighborhoods
in Seattle...
cause I never know what to expect,
(as in the case of Broadway!)
and if there's gonna be tons of traffic
or anywhere to park.

Turns out
Wallingford is this super cute
older neighborhood.
Lots of beautiful older homes and buildings.

Trophy Cupcakes was situated
in an old school house
that they remodeled into an indoor shopping mall.
WITH tons of parking!
(that's a biggie)

I kinda wanted to get one of every cupcake
(cause I'm not great at making decisions...
especially involving chocolate)
But wound up getting six:
Double Choclate, Chocolate Vanilla,
Red Velvet, Salted Caramel Chocolate
Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Very Vanilla.
(I got the Vanilla one cause I felt guilty getting all Chocolate)

Can't wait to go back to Wallingford just to browse
all the storefronts and cute stores and restaurants.


  1. Wow, that looks like a pretty neat place just to browse around. I still think how amazing it is that Cupcakes have become such a 'craze' the past couple years. Seems like they weren't that big a deal back in our early years. Personally myself, I hated making cupcakes and frosting them, would rather make one cake and plaster frosting on top of it. There must be at least a dozen different cupcakes stores around Kalispell now, everyone is making them. Enjoy the yummy looking delights. And give Laura a big Birthday HUG from us. Eva

  2. I'm loving cupcakes right now. They're just so cute looking!

  3. That way you can have more than one =) Variety ... vanilla please. Terri

  4. Looks like you had fun "shopping" for cupcakes. I hope you can look thru the other shops soon. How did you get to the cupcake store....by using some kind of navigation system? I just recently got an iphone and am still learning about all the Apps that you can get.:)
    We missed you at the Preacher's Meeting. I told your husband to tell you. He was in the food line while I was serving....he said he was getting food for you....how sweet. (He wanted some more of something).ha,ha. Do you have a Smartphone? If so do you do Instagram(I am still learning)
    Take care & keep blogging. :)

    1. I look up places on google maps or I use my navigation on my phone which usually works pretty good. But I always check google maps first. Pick out my own way. I just downloaded Instagram a couple of weeks ago. Am loving it!
