Started by Hawaii transplants Gertie Han and Karl Krautheim more than 50 years ago, Oh! Chocolate is now run by the couple?s two daughters, who uphold Gertie and Karl?s reputation for quality as they handcraft French?style chocolate morsels. USA Today named the neighborhood establishment one of Seattle's foremost chocolatiers for its ?old-fashioned? melt-in-your-mouth? creations, which include raspberry, cabernet, and mango-habanero truffles, as well as caramels with a sprinkle of sea salt harvested from one of the peninsula's naturally occurring saltshakers. Oh! Chocolate?s warm and inviting Madison Park location spreads cocoa-themed knowledge with a slate of classes in which small groups of students glean valuable information such as tempering methods and ideal placement atop a just-fluffed pillow.

If you do a double take upon reading the name on the door of New York Cupcakes, you're not alone. Many of the shop's customers wonder why this quaint cupcake shop in Bellevue Square is named after a city on the other side of the country. The answer is simple: that's what the shop was called when current owner Lisa Waxman Johnson first fell in love with it and decided to buy it; the former owner, Lisa says, meant the name to be an homage to the birthplace of the modern cupcake trend.
Lisa's cupcakes may not be made in New York, but their modern flavor combinations and chic decorations would make the fashion-forward Big Apple proud. The cupcake roster includes no fewer than 60 tempting options, with favorites that include Cookie Dough Delight, Royal Red Velvet, and Oh My Blueberry Pie. Several flavors draw inspiration from New York landmarks and icons, such as the New York Black & White, a half-chocolate, half-vanilla cupcake inspired by the city's beloved black and white cookies, or the Coney Island Coconut, a nod to the palm trees that line Brooklyn's beaches. The mouth-watering confections have earned numerous accolades by those impressed by their style and substance?each batch is made fresh daily using local eggs and butter.
At first glance, the kitchen of Trophy Cupcakes and Party could be taken for that of a gourmet restaurant. Pure Madagascar-Bourbon vanilla and Valrhona cocoa from France line the shelves, and local sweet-cream butter, free-range eggs, and fresh fruit fill the fridge. These are the ingredients Jennifer Shea uses to craft her daily rotating cupcake flavors, from chocolate nutella to gluten-free cherries jubilee. With the help of husband Michael Williamson, she distributes her decadent handheld desserts to four Seattle boutiques, which have garnered press attention to rival that of the city's finest eateries. Martha Stewart gushed about Jennifer's innovative and widely varied flavors, and Seattle magazine's readers dubbed them best cupcakes 2011-2014.
To complement their cupcakes, Trophy Cupcakes stocks a curated selection of party supplies. A cocktail-style party room in Wallingford Center, which can accommodate up to 30 guests, is available to rent for birthday parties, baby showers, and superhero business meetings.
