Sweet Shops

Remember the other day when I showed you guys inside Miette? Well, as I was digging up those photos from last Fall when I was on the book tour, I found a bunch more sweet shops that I never showed you guys. Want to see? Be careful. You’ll want a cupcake or nine before you finish looking at them all.

IMG_6418

First stop on the book tour was Portland, Oregon. And it wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Voodoo Doughnut.

Love these logo-printed pink boxes.

IMG_6412

Check out their signature Voodoo doughnut.

IMG_6425

Yummm. They have fun flavors like Bacon Maple Bar, Grape Ape and even cereal covered doughnuts.

IMG_7092

Also in Portland is Saint Cupcake Deluxe.

IMG_7076

Their cupcakes were delicious and piled high with frosting.

IMG_7077

The shop was too cute for words with their adorable party supplies section. I had to have these paper cups. Although I haven’t been able to bring myself to use them yet.

IMG_7428

In Seattle, we have Cupcake Royale. Actually, there are five of them.
Cupcake Julie and I visited two of their locations.

Great sign.

IMG_7441

Great packaging. Love the tagline.

IMG_7440

And great tasting cupcakes with beautifully swirled frosting.

IMG_7485

Trophy Cupcakes is also in Seattle. They have three locations. Make sure you visit at least one of them. Trophy was on the Martha Stewart Show on the same day I was during Cupcake Week in 08. It was fun to finally see the shop in person.

IMG_7463

Look at that Peanut Butter Frosting. Yes, please.

IMG_7473

This is the Wallingford Center location. The awnings are fantastic.

IMG_7491

We grabbed a few cupcakes to sample.

IMG_7505

Then Julie and I had a cupcake showdown between the Seattle shops.

I think it was a draw since we weren’t comparing flavor to flavor, it was too tough to choose. They both had really yummy cupcakes.

IMG_7522

On to doughnuts at Frost just outside of Seattle.

IMG_7508

More traditional flavors than Voodoo… and that was just fine by me.

IMG_8306

Ice cream anyone?

Well, if you’re in San Francisco you really need to check out Bi-Rite Creamery.

IMG_8312

Get it by the scoop or take some home. This stuff is so good.

Brown Sugar with Ginger Caramel Swirl. Need I say more?

IMG_8411

You remember Miette, of course.

IMG_8396

Delightful little cakes and more.

IMG_8418

That Takes the Cake in San Francisco was a smaller shop, but big on flavor.

IMG_8416

I’ll take Peanut Butter cups on cake anytime.

IMG_8432

Right on Union Street in San Francisco is another sweet shop.

Pacific Puffs.

IMG_8427

All about cream puffs.

IMG_8429

Founded by two brothers making their mom’s recipe. Buff boys selling puffs. I’m sold.

IMG_8451

Wow, Julie and I really outdid ourselves in San Francisco.

Here’s another one. American Cupcake.

IMG_8439

FIlled with colorful little cakes …

IMG_8435

And some topped with cotton candy. So cute.

IMG_8472

Kara’s Cupcakes can be found in Ghiradelli Square in San Francisco.

IMG_8473

Modern. Beautiful. Delicious.

IMG_8475

And with such a sweet staff.

IMG_8975

After San Francisco, I met up with my mom in Los Angeles.

We stopped by Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica.

You can’t miss this shop with it’s jumbo graphic awning.

IMG_8956

I see some pops.

IMG_8961

And sweet shots.

IMG_8968

Perty little cakes.

IMG_9035

Next up was Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills.

IMG_9029

A sweet group of girls greeted us.

IMG_9021

Their red velvet is one of my faves.

Untitled-1

Mom and I sat outside and enjoyed a few.

IMG_9289

In Salt Lake City, Utah we didn’t actually make it to any cupcake shops because of time, luckily I had a few folks bring some from the Sweet Tooth Fairy. Thanks Maria and friends.

IMG_9297

Yum.

IMG_9315

I mean YUM. We made quite the scene waiting for our plane at the airport and checking them all out.

IMG_9445

Wanna see more?

IMG_9448

Then check out More Cupcakes in Chicago.

They have a super cool way to display their cupcakes.

IMG_9480

Look at that frosting.

IMG_9705

Molly’s Cupcakes is also in Chicago.

IMG_9700

Peach Cobbler cupcakes anyone?

IMG_9708

This shop was jam-packed with a line out the door.

IMG_9732

And worth every bite. The one in front is called the Ron Bennington. Chocolate cake, peanut butter filling, chocolate ganache and butterscotch topping. Help.

IMG_2754

Unfortunately, in New York City, I only made it to one cupcake shop.

But, it’s one I would visit again and again.

Baked by Melissa makes teeniny cupcakes and serves them sans wrappers.

IMG_2746

Look at all of them. These little guys were surprisingly moist and yuuummmy. The only thing I would do differently next time is order more than six of these one bite wonders. Or two bite if you want to look like you have table manners.

Well that’s it. 17 shops in 8 cities. Hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I did eating at them all.

Maia said...

Fantastic, mouth-watering, colorful, fun filled photos! My favorites: the “cupcake carnage,” the buff boys, and spotting my favorite red velvet ever from Sprinkles in LA. I noticed somebody recommended Porto’s – I live down the street and frequent it often – what’s most outstanding about it is the price/quality ratio. Thanks for sharing!

I wish I’d known you were at Frost. I’m 5 minutes away & would have loved to buy you a donut. I am glad, however, you were able to try some of the best donuts on the planet!!! :)

Oh my Goodness…..I would love to go to Molly’s Cupcakes!

If you’re ever in the Maryland/DC area, you must try Georgetown Cupcakes and Lilly Magillies. Delish and almost too cute to eat.

Ah shucks! When you were in Los Angeles to try Sprinkles and Vanilla Bake Shop….you should of tried HOTCAKES! May sounds like a pancake house…but it’s HEAVEN in a cupcake. Not too many people know about it because it’s hidden. But it’s a MUST TRY!

Julie in Edmonds said...

Yum…yum…yum. Gasp! I live a smidge north of Seattle and I haven’t been to ANY of these – shame on me! (And Frost groupons keep popping up. What am I thinking?!)

sara pea said...

aaaaaccckk!! you have saved my brain from melting!!!

Way back when, DH and I were at That Takes the Cake (yummy and super nice owner!) one day and decided to stop by on a whim to a puff place. We never been to a puff place like that!!! Oh, goodness. It was like eating ice cream. Soooo so delicious. And that was the end of the story. Until now, Pacific Puffs!!

Thank you!! I am so happy to see that you’re doing better!!!

Love it! I was in Seattle and Chicago a few months ago. I saw a few of those shops but wouldn’t dare to go in there b/c i had a bridesmaid dress to fit in ;).
If you ever visit Tallahassee, Florida you should defintiely check out The cake shop (http://tallycakeshop.com) . I would recommend that place for sure. Heck if you come into town give me a shout I’ll even meet you there to have a bite or two. I would love you meet you and have you inspire me some more!

My daughter lives in Eugene where there is another voodoo doughnut! I will be visiting there soon, and that is on our list of things to do! (other than take care of her two boys while she recuperates from having her third!)
On another note, I will be in SF this weekend, celebrating my birthday (and going to Muir Woods) – I will have to hit up one of those sweet shops! Thanks!
I’m so glad you are blogging again and doing well! :)

There’s a cute little cupcake place in Lawrence, Kansas called, “Cupcake Construction Company”. They’re small but mighty! & they even have “minis’…tiny cupcakes in addition to the regular sized ones…it’s set up so you can choose your cupcake, filling, frosting and topping & is so much fun and delish! Love it!

The boys from Pacific Puffs played basketball for my husband while in high school. What a pleasant surprise to see their faces on your blog. If their puffs are as sweet as they are, everyone needs to go by while in SF and say Coach K sent them!

I agree with the above…it’s too bad you missed Cupcake Jones in Portland!! After visiting every bakery in the city my girlfriend and I decided that if stranded on a desert island we would take their cupcakes exclusively ! ! They’re FANTASTIC!

Hi!! I love all of your photos SO much! I work at a small (more like tiny) cupcake shop in Naperville, IL (Sugar Monkey Cupcakes-like the name drop? :) but it looks nothing like these amazing places. I have been to MORE cupcakes in the city but that is the only one I have been to so far. I guess when I am working with cupcakes all day, venturing outside my cupcake box is hard to do. Well, thank you for adding the pictures, I look forward to every new post!! :)

The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh said...

How nice it was to see the cupcake shops we frequented over the past year like More, Sprinkles and Kara’s.

I’d have to recommend Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique in Chicago in the winter for their Hot Chocolate cupcake. Also liked Sift in Napa, CA. Bent Fork Bakery in northern burbs of Chicago (Highland) is worth the trip as well. (They chill theirs though so call ahead & place an order to thaw or eat them later. Or drive around the neighborhoods on a John Hughes movie location tour and let them thaw in the backseat!)

Wow!!! First of all, your mom looks just like you. Second of all, I went to that exact Trophy’s cupcakes in Seattle! I saw a groupon… 1 dozen cupcakes for 16 dollars. I just had to do it. I loved the carrot cake cupcake. Oldie but goodie. I’ve never been to Voodoo, but I have always wanted to go. Next time I’m in Portland, for sure! Thanks for posting these… I am going to go eat a cinnamon roll now, I’m craving something sweet!

I don’t know if you’re ever in the area (and you may have already been there or at least heard of it) but, Brown Betty in Philadelphia has THE BEST red velvet cupcake. To die for! If you’re ever in the area, seek them out like a heat-guided missile. ;)

The best cupcakes I have ever had are just out side of Nashville at IVEYCAKE. Beyond good, with fluffy cake frosting that is creamy and delish! I love “the boss” the best, it is almost like a Boston cream pie cupcake with a soft cake. I live outside of Chicago and BEG people who go to Nashville to bring me some back.

Pacific Puffs!!!! They have the best cream puffs I’ve ever eaten. And they’re both so nice and easy to talk to.

Slthough I’m happy you got picture of one of the hot brothers (the married one), I’m a little bummed you didn’t get a picture of the other. I may or may not have had a little crush on him. ;) They’re definitely two good looking brothers that can make a mean cream puff.

I made sure my husband and I hit VooDoo in Portland~ for my sake. After I realized they only take cash, I ended up with a single doughnut… which I ate after my hubby almost got crushed by a bus, and while we got lost trying to get out of Portland. But it was one excellent doughnut!!!! The husband just rolled his eyes.

If you ever make it to Boston, you should definitely check out Sweet Cupcakes. They have 4 locations – Newbury St, Harvard Sq, Mass Ave and Downtown Crossing. SUCH good cupcakes. They have seasonal cupcakes on top of their daily flavors so in summer there’s lemon raspberry, strawberry shortcake, pina colada, etc. In the fall there’s pancake and pumpkin and there are just too many to list. Seriously. Such a great place and I guarantee you won’t regret it.

On another note, I’m happy to hear that you’re feeling better.

In Seattle:
Bakery Nouveau does, well, everything except cupcakes.
For ice-cream most people go for Molly Moons, but the one to find is Bluebird up on Capitol Hill. The best, and you can get a beer float.

In New York:
One place to try is Jane’s Sweet Buns, a cocktail themed sticky bun place.

In Seattle: Top Pot donuts! (on/near Broadway in Capitol Hill) and also Molly Moons ice cream. I love French bakeries so I would recommend the ones in Pike Place!

You should check out Cake and all things Yummy in Kernersville, NC. OMG Their White Chocolate Almond is amazing. The kids love the the Peanut butter chocolate. I mean I’m not a yellow cake white icing person, but WOW! I even devour those too. We just moved and I miss them soooo much. We just tried a local cupcake shop and needless to say I won’t be back. :( I can’t wait for Christmas vacation to go to Cake and all things Yummy!

Hi, Angie! Im so happy to hear you´re doing better.
So, I live in Brazil and cupcakes became quite the mania around here. Well, but what Im super curious about is how the bake such tiny cupcakes at Baked by Melissa. Did they have a special baking trays made for that…cause it would be a sensation here too and Id love to make them tiny like that.

Next time you’re in NYC, Go to Dekalb mall in Brooklyn for some Robiceli’s cupcakes. You will not regret it.

Response to Leah (post #86)… Georgetown Cupcake is AMAZING. I went to Georgetown and the saddest part about graduation day was leaving that bakery behind.

Other hot spots to hit are Baked and Wired in DC, just a few blocks away from G-town Cupcake; CakeLove on U Street in DC; Billy’s Bakery in NYC; & Magnolia in NYC!

What a fun post! You have me thinking that the oatmeal raisin pecan cookies I *just* baked aren’t enough. ;) If you ever come to Charlotte, NC, I highly recommend Amelie’s, a French bakery. It’s worth the trip alone. Their Salted Caramel Brownie is an award-winner, but they have plenty of other yummies to try, too. But if you do come here, Polka Dot bakeshop is a favorite of ours, too. They are a cupcake shop, and their Lemon Raspberry is wonderful!!

Wow what a fattening but mouth-watering trip, you should definitely go to Sweet in Boston, Massachusetts, I recommend the pink lemonade and strawberry shortcake. It’s decor is cute, and overall, this is a place you must visit!

Was visiting my sis in Seattle and went to Frost– those are yummy donuts! My sister’s comment was you don’t even feel bad after you eat it! (meaning no greasy lump in the belly) drove by Cupcake Royale but alas did not have time to stop :(

Also in redmond near seattle is a cupcake shop called pinkabella. It’s better than cupcakes royal. They actually have a few stores in the seattle area. You need to check them out.
