Delicious! We have a few vegans, and it was awesome to be able to provide a vegan cupcake as well as the regular cupcakes. We did a trio of the baby cakes for each guest because they are so amazing! We went around Seattle and tasted cup cakes from multiple bakeries and Cup Cake Royale is the best! The boxes are clever with the writing.

Cupcake Royale did a most fantastic job with our cupcakes. We were able to order a variety of flavors, but then customize them so that they all matched the theme and style of our wedding. Our guests were RAVING about how nice it was to actually enjoy eating a wedding dessert, and how fresh they were. And, since it was affordable, we could order enough for people to have more than one!

We love Cupcake Royal cupcakes and wanted to use them in lieu of our wedding cake. The mini cupcakes turned out beautiful with the 4 different varieties we chose. I might add it was also fun to do our cupcake tasting at the Capitol Hill store. We were given complimentary cupcakes to take home and a cute t-shirt.

The cupcakes were pretty and tasted great. All of our guests said they were the best cupcakes they ever had. The stand was nice and went with my decor. The one thing I would change is that they wouldn't set the cupcakes up on the stand. I had to have my brother set them up. Not a big problem, just would have been nice if they had either set cupcakes up on the stand or let us know they wouldn't set up cupcakes when we booked with them.

First off, the cupcakes were absolutely DELICIOUS and all of our guests loved them. That said, a few things that we were not happy with:
-They delivered a round stand for the cupcakes instead of the square we had picked out. We had to special make a top because there is a screw head right on the top so any cake topper wouldn't sit. We had made it according to the square stand, so when they arrived with a circular one in wouldn't work.
- They were slow responding to emails. Sometimes I would have to email more than once (after waiting a few days between) for them to respond
- They don't leave any of the boxes for you to take home any leftover cupcakes

So instead of the traditional wedding cake, my now hubby and I decided to have wedding cupcakes. I'd heard Trophy was all the rage, but in a head to head competition (we had 4 people and 6 cupcakes each from Trophy and Royale) Royale was the unanimous winner.

Basically they do everything you could want for cupcakes for your wedding or special event.

1. you get a cheaper price the more you order - I think we ended up paying about $2.50 per cupcake, compare that to a wedding cake!
2. They deliver for a small charge and set up
3. They will let you rent a cupcake stand that holds 90 cupcakes for a small charge
4. They do small cakes for cutting (which we didn't do)
5. You can order cupcakes off the menu or have ones specially made for your event - we did both. We had one third lemon drop (soooo freakin' amazing), one third caramel apple (the October special) and one third Coconut Bunny with Pink instead of White frosting (really pretty)
6. We were treated really well, and the people who work at both the Ballard and Capitol Hill locations are crazy nice.

Everyone loved them! In fact we had to "cut the cake" early because people were eating them already!

Cupcake Royale turned out really well. The guests loved the cupcakes and they were very well made. I had my friends go to the store and pick them up and set them up on our rented tier, everything went well without having to get them delivered. I really liked that they made us a cutting cake as well.

My one issue with them is that at our first meeting when we went to taste and write down our initial thoughts, the gal we met was very relaxed about everything to the point that we didn't even get any advice as far as timing to place our order and when we should get money, what cakes most people choose etc. When looking for a vendor I was used to getting someone that is willing to help and give their opinion to make my life a bit easier, I didn't find that here.

Cupcake Royale provided over 200 cupcakes for our wedding - they were perfect. They looked great, came in a great variety and were perfectly priced. The only problem we had was with communication - the woman who we ordered from was not available many times and was not good at returning phone calls.

This vendor was great. The cupcake tasting was really fun and the quality of the cupcakes was wonderful. The display looked great and they were very flexible when we needed to add another rental pedestal at the last minute. I would fully recommend this vendor for anyone that wants to have cupcakes for their wedding.

The cupcakes were a huge hit at my wedding and were delicious. We got three flavors with different colored flowers and are guests just thought it was the best idea ever. The Red Velvet was definetly a hit! We also rented the stand, which was much higher quality than some other places that have plastic ones. Their wedding coordinator's were really easy to work with, I must have changed my order like 5 times and they were always very accommodating and it all turned out perfect. Cupcake Royale has been a favorite of mine for awhile and I will keep comming back!

Great alternative to cake!!! The cupcakes were very affordable and delicious! We met with the wedding coordinator in Ballard and she was great. They even mixed a special green color frosting to match our colors. Everyone was very pleased with the cupcakes and the 5-tier stand gave the illusion of a wedding cake! We mixed in loose flowers that matched our bouquets and it was beautiful!

I ordered my cupcakes from the Ballard location of Cupcake Royale. I was lucky enough to have a tasting with a great gal named Kayleen. My husband and I knew we wanted their delicious cupcakes at our wedding, but Kayleen put us over the top on our decision. It was the least costly of all of our vendors and you're able to choose from so many options. We had red velvet cupcakes, white babycakes with vanilla frosting and coconut and a chocolate mint cutting cake! The cupcake tiers are just beautiful and classy and added a really lovely touch to the decor, as well.

Highly recommend Cupcake Royale...and as for that comment about Trophy Cupcakes...to each his own, I prefer CR anyday! Ask for Kayleen!

While I was thrilled with the end result, the process of working with Cupcake Royale was not as easy and good as working with other vendors. The responsiveness of the staff is fairly slow which led us to not having an accurate invoice for our order for days after we placed it. It's too bad because the person with whom we did our tasting was professional, able to answer all our questions, and seemed very capable. We were disappointed that the person we met with had offered up customization options that were unavailable. If we did not like the baby cakes better here than at another vendor, we likely would not have used Cupcake Royale and would have gone with someone else.

The cupcakes from Cupcake Royale were great for my wedding. They were delivered on time and set up in beautiful tiers. The whole room smelled of chocolate and vanilla frosting! Guests couldn't wait to try one. My only suggestion is that they have more options for a cutting cake...but it was still beautiful.

Instead of having a wedding cake of all of our guests to share, we decided to go with Cupcake Royale and have cupcakes as our wedding dessert. We ordered 135 or so and had a ton left over at the end of the night because they're such large cupcakes!

When you go into Cupcake Royale in Ballard, you can't really speak with someone face-to-face about a big wedding order. They encouraged us to call the "Wedding Hotline, " which we did, and about a day later they got back to us and took our order. Depending on how picky you are, you can dictate the exact cupcake makeup of your big order or you can just give them free reign to put in a big mix, which is what we did.

We picked up our cupcakes at 2 PM on a Sunday, so bonus points to them for being open and flexible on that day. Make sure to put your order in at least a week in advance so they have a lot of time to process.

Tasty and a great cost-effective way to give dessert to your guests!

We loved our cupcakes! When we went in for our initial consultation we were sooo impressed with the wedding coordinator and how she took care of us. They brought out one of all of their cupcakes and we ended up sitting with her for about an hour just discussing ideas. I think her name was Kelly, she was really great and a big part of the reason we ulitmately chose Cupcake Royale! Everyone loved the cupcakes at the wedding. Thank you!

We used Cupcake Royale both for a cutting cake at our wedding reception (venue provided dessert) and for cupcakes for a celebratory bbq the following weekend.

Both were fantastic, though my favorite was the cutting cake. It was simple vanilla cake with vanilla icing, and they decorated the sides with sugar and the top with three tiny flowers. It was very classic looking and tasted great.

The cupcakes were various combinations of vanilla and chocolate, and disappeared quickly. We ordered twice as many as we figured we'd need and only had three left at the end of the evening.

The cupcakes were incredibly delicious. They delivered to our site, were no hassle and were definitely a good deal for the money. We ordered chocolate with chocolate and vanilla with lemon frosting. Some people even had two!! They looked really amazing but simple...which is what we wanted.

Cupcake Royale creates the most wonderful cupcakes ever. My wedding was in the park with a picnic theme and cupcakes just seemed like the way to go! My ( the bride) favorite cupcake, the Lavender Vanilla and My husbands favorite ( mint choc/or vanilla) were on the main "cake" and we purchased a red velvet cutting cake which was to DIE for! the cake parts are simple, choc, vanilla or red velvet and the frostings are just amazing! check them out.

I contacted this company by email and telephone five times about my wedding without receiving a single response. I started contacting them in January about my wedding, which was in June. They never even acknowledged my messages.

I later sampled some of their cupcakes at the detox Seattle party, and they weren't all that amazing. Better than grocery store cupcakes, but nothing to write home about. There is a little place in Wallingford Center called Trophy Cupcake that has much nicer products, and is a lot better with communication.

So it did take me a long time to get in contact with the contact person here. They were a little flakey and I kept wondering if they were even going to show up at my wedding. But they did and the cupcakes were a hit!! I chose cupcakes to do something different and fun and it definitey was. They make cupcakes in different flavors with frosting to match your wedding colors and set them up on a teir to look like a real wedding cake. They deliver them to the site for you and set it all up so you don't have to worry about it. It was a really fun idea and turned out very cute. For your sake, I do hope they've made someone else their contact person in the last couple years though!

We had Cupcake Royale cupcakes at our wedding instead of a traditional cake, and.we absolutely loved them! We picked four distinctly different flavors so there would be something for everyone, and they were a huge hit. They delivered to the venue on time, despite unforeseen access issues (a gay pride parade being staged outside the door of the venue!) and the quality of the cupcakes was fantastic.

We had a small wedding at Snoqualmie Falls - family only - and the "feel" of the wedding was a bit more laid back. I wanted something to reflect our taste in "simple pleasures," and knew that cupcakes would be perfect! I enlisted my Mom's help in getting the cupcakes - not only were we (slightly) last minute, but we had special colors and flavors to boot. The in-store (Bellevue) experience was top-notch; not only did they accept our asks with a smile, but the guy at the front desk was sure they didnt't have the special sprinkles/toppers we wanted, and volunteered to pick some up - on his own dime - at a specialty store in SEATTLE on his way home, and come in early Friday morning (my wedding was that afternoon) to ensure they were placed perfectly, in time for a noon pick up! We couldn't be happier. The cupcakes were beautiful, delicious, and of course all the kiddos went nuts for them! Thank you SO much Cupcake Royale!
- A fan for life...
