Hailing from an Italian clan that expressed adoration via edibles, Bellacelli Cupcakery's head baker whips together fresh local eggs, fruits, and dairy products to create desserts that land on doorsteps in recyclable packaging. Lollicakes emulate the makeup of their cupcake cousins, flaunting bite-size morsels speared on a stick to facilitate jabbing competitors at community bake sales. Peanut-butter filling bursts from the heart of Ted dark-chocolate lollicakes, topped with semisweet chocolate buttercream. Emilia confections mimic citrusy summer sips by marrying strawberry buttercream with lemon cake and candy, and white-russian fixings spike the adult-oriented Thad lollicakes, which are perfect for celebrating 21st birthdays or throwing at the ghosts of prohibition enforcers.
A globally recognized sweet shop, Beard Papa's converts traditional desserts into decadent, fresh-baked, hand-labored lovables. Their all-natural cream puffs exhibit a complex, crispy outer choux pastry packed with mouth-melting, fluffy whipped-cream custard derived from imported vanilla beans and hours of diligent daydreaming. Beard Papa's doughsmiths shun preservatives in favor of all-natural and organic ingredients, which, like library books, should be devoured immediately for optimal freshness. The original vanilla recipe was crafted in Osaka, Japan before migrating across oceans, continents, and dinner menus to sate sweet teeth worldwide.

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.
The first time you visit Canarino Gelato, it can take a minute to locate the 24 daily flavors of gelato and sorbetto. When you finally pick out the handwritten list from all the other art scribbled on the chalkboard wall, you arrive at the truly difficult part: deciding upon a flavor. Year-round favorites such as salted caramel and sour cherry are always a good bet, but they must contend with seasonally inspired scoops of pumpkin gelato topped with crunchy leaves. Fruity, tart flavors are well-represented on the sorbetto menu, and they serve as a nice counterpoint to the bitter and slightly sweet notes of the house coffee.
