Frosted Cupcakes & Cakes proprietor and pastry chef Stefanie Buono bakes a profusion of icing-slathered cupcakes from scratch each day, earning her shop a spot on the Snohomish County Real Estate Guide’s local to-do list. To make her daily batch of buttery treats, Stefanie whisks together all-natural ingredients such as sugar, eggs, and cream, keeping concoctions free of artificial margarine, prepackaged mixes, or cyborg sprinkles played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Flavors rotate daily, but previous options have included dark chocolate cake with fudge frosting or lemon cake topped with passionfruit buttercream.
Every day at more than 770 locations, Jamba Juice proves that good nutrition can be both convenient and delicious. Since the beginning, the company has based its philosophy on choosing whole fruits and all-natural ingredients over artificial flavorings and preservatives.

Customers can kick-start their morning with a steaming bowl of slow-cooked, steel-cut oatmeal, or stay energized throughout the day with six varieties of Energy Bowls: nutrient-rich blends of whole fruit, Greek yogurt or soymilk, and an assortment of dry toppings and fresh fruits.
In addition to nourishing and energizing the human body, Jamba Juice fights childhood obesity by sponsoring Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative encourages fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to getting kids active?which they can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

The stores' new and refurbished gear ranges from simple electric kettles to restaurant-grade, multi-cup espresso machines. An on-staff team of technicians also maintains and repairs the machines that java fans bring in.
