West Seattle's Royale Block Party

Posted by Katy

Seattle's Elite Squad joined together in an effort to "legalize frostitution" on Thursday, May 27th. A Block Party was held in West Seattle as folks gathered 'round to decorate and eat cupcakes from legendary local hot spot Cupcake Royale and sip on wines at neighboring Bin 41

In addition to creating your own cupcake at the sprinkle bar, guests were also treated to a sneak preview of June's flavor, roasted coconut and lime. Paired with champagne or coffee these treats were swallowed up pretty fast!

No party is perfect without flours! So the folks from Shepherds Grain were on hand to pass out individual bags of locally produced organic flour to each attending guest. This same flour is used in Cupcake Royale's cupcakes so it was an especially nice treat!

Across the street, local wine shop Bin 41 provided a lovely pairing of local wines with even more cupcake flavors!

As if that weren't enough, yelpers were also able to win raffle prizes from local artist Mary Patchin! Her artwork adorned some of the walls during the event and 6 lucky guests were able to win one-of-a-kind cupcake art.


Before leaving for the night with lunchboxes and goodies in hand, guests were encouraged to get their photos taken with the Cupcake Royale Rollgergirl!
