Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two dozen assorted mini cupcakes at Sugar Rush Baking Company (a $30 value).
The attention to detail—elaborate icing and decorations—on Sugar Rush Baking Company's cupcakes have earned it the title “the best cupcake in Seattle” according to the Stranger. Mini cupcakes huddle inside pastry cases in nearly two dozen flavors, including a lemon cake iced with strawberry buttercream that hearkens to memories of sipping chilly strawberry lemonade during a hot summer day. Chocolate cake benefits from mint buttercream, and a yellow cake frosted with chocolate fudge exudes effortless perfection like a rose in full bloom or Martha Stewart’s mudroom. Patrons can sip cups of Vashon coffee or Choice Organic tea in the warm, inviting coffee bar and permit little ones to spend sugar-induced energy in a room stocked with toys and games.
Sugar Rush Baking Company
From the vantage point of Sugar Rush Baking Company's lengthy dessert and coffee bar, visitors can catch a glimpse of the busy kitchen staff as they craft cakes, cookies, scones, and brownies throughout the day. This bakery team works with a dedication to homestyle techniques, decorating custom-layered cakes by hand and accentuating them with frosting flowers plucked fresh from the candy garden. The shop specializes in miniature cupcakes, and with more than two dozen signature flavors including chocolate cake with mint-buttercream frosting, the team has been forced to create an entire separate menu for the tiny candle cushions.
