After much anticipation, Wink Cupcakes has finally opened their doors! And they were welcomed in true Seattle fashion – by light rain, friendly customers, and pink balloons. A few of us from Bella Cupcake Couture headed down to Seattle to get a glimpse, and a taste, of this new addition to the cupcake community.
While we were there we decided to do a cupcake tasting! A glorious invention, if I do say. Each of us picked out a flavor, divided it into thirds, and took time to enjoy the taste of each!
We picked out Lemon, Peanut Butter, and Red Velvet and it is hard to say which one we liked better! The Lemon flavor had a light, spongy taste with creamy frosting. Peanut Butter took me back to the days of savoring every last piece of candy from Halloween and was absolutely delicious. Red Velvet, with cream cheese frosting, was a classic with its rich taste and tangy frosting.
The owner Deanne and her friendly employees even were gracious enough to stop and take pictures with their yummy cupcakes!
As illustrated in the picture above, customers may not be able to help themselves! (Their window into the bakery area says “Please refrain from licking the window”)
Next time your there to do your own cupcake tasting, check out their display of Bella Cupcake Couture! Why not add a little style to your tasty cupcake from Wink? ;-)
Lastly, we just missed getting to visit with our friend and fellow cupcake-loving Seattlite, Jessie from Cakespy.com. So we thought we'd share her darling review HERE. She took her Wink cupcakes on a fabulous Seattle Tour.
