Theres plenty of brand-new cupcake shops on this list, but Cupcake Royale isn't one of them. Founded in 2003 as Seattle's first cupcake bakery and cafe, they were also the first non-New York cupcakery ever. Cupcake Royale's embraced Seattle's global reputation for great coffee, offering delicious artisan espresso along with their delicious desserts. Each treat is baked with an intentional muffin top, creating a unique silhouette and cupcake experience. (After all, everyone knows the best part of a muffin is the top.) Try the Tiramisu — it's vanilla buttercake, topped with mascarpone whipped frosting that's blended with a reduction of their favorite coffee and dusted with cocoa powder. In the cafe, they'll serve it to you "affogoto-ized" on request, or drowned in espresso. — Marilyn He, 11/8/2012
