It’s the end of day 3 of my trip to Seattle, but I wanted to share a couple of places I went yesterday. The theme of yesterday was sugar and more sugar with sugar on top please. I think my friends and I are trying to see how much sugary treats we can possibly eat in one weekend. 😉
Yesterday once we got up and around and got the babies taken care of, we headed out for breakfast. It was a short walk to our intended destination – Top Pot Doughnuts. I’ve written before about my love of donuts. So when the bride and groom mentioned this donut shop as a place we should visit, it instantly went to the top of my list.
It was such a fun shop! A lot different than donut shops in Kansas City. It was more like a coffee shop/donut shop. It was really big and the walls were lined with books. Such a cool vibe.
There were tons of donuts I wanted to try and it was really tough to choose. I ended up getting a bavarian cream filled donut with chocolate frosting and a maple frosted old-fashioned donut. This is the cream filled donut. Look at the size of this thing:
It was gigantic and sooo delicious. The coffee was great too. I really enjoyed this place (and we actually went back this morning too). And by the time we left there was a line out the door.
Later in the afternoon in between the wedding and the reception my friend Em and I went to Cupcake Royale.
I didn’t get a picture of the outside of the cupcake shop, but here is a shot of the inside of the shop. It had a nice vibe. Wood floors and tables and chairs. And it was busy! I think it was the sunshine that brought everyone out yesterday.
Too many choices:
The cupcake flavor of the month is Maple Whiskey Bacon. No bacon for me, but they did have just a Maple Whiskey cupcake. I love maple but I wasn’t sure about the whiskey flavor so I passed.
I wanted a special flavor that I don’t see everywhere, so I decided on the salted caramel cupcake.
When I peeled off the wrapper the top fell off. That was kind of a disappointment but then I thought I probably would’ve pulled the top off anyway because there’s no way I could get that in one bite. The cake part was really good and moist (very important in cupcakes). The frosting was good but I didn’t think it tasted much like salted caramel. It was good but I was expecting a much stronger caramel flavor.
Then at the wedding reception there was PIE instead of cake. How fun! I hadn’t been to a wedding with pie before. There were three kinds – pumpkin, apple and marionberry. Of course I had two pieces, apple and pumpkin. One for me and one for the baby, right? The pie was really delicious but I didn’t get any pictures of it.
So two donuts, a cupcake and two pieces of pie all in one day? Too much? 😀
