Okay, so I feel I am working my way up the cupcake ladder. I have been to Sprinkles, Trophy's, Kara's, Cupcake Royal, Cupcake Jones and a few more. I recently added a visit to The Yellow Leaf in Seattle. I chose 4 cupcakes to bring home

There are better cupcakes in town ?? but Yellow Leaf does deliver when it comes to creativity and flavor combinations (although sometimes overdone). However, if you drop by too late in the afternoon (say 3 pm) you could be SOL. The bakery doesn??t churn them out as much and frequently as the other guys do, but then again this may be a result of its inconspicuous location in Belltown. Harder to find means less foot traffic. It doesn??t help that the yellow logo and sign is hard to locate ?? look for Bell Thai, it??s next door.

Different strokes for different folks? but Yellow Leaf??s gourmet frosting ?? a self-proclaimed ??differentiator?? ?? tastes more like flavored shortening. The cake isn??t much better ?? while flavor combinations dazzle, the moistness is hit or miss from one to the next. Yellow Leaf earns points for offering a delicious selection of teas from Art of the Tea as well as French Press coffee from Fonte. During the summer days, try their amazing Toddy-made iced coffee ?? sweet and chocolaty without the guilt!

Whatever your cupcake affiliation or preference, Yellow Leaf deserves credit for supporting local causes and charities each month. Look for the rotating "Yellow Heart" charity cupcake because $1.00 from every cupcake sold goes to support the charity in need.

Pros: Variety of flavors, Iced Coffee

Cons: Cake, frosting, location

When I discovered the Yellow Leaf Cupcake store, I thought I hit pure gold! I couldn't believe there was such a thing as a tomato soup cupcake or a sweet potato and maple brown sugar cupcake. Obviously, this is a high end gourmet type of fare - and absolutely perfect for some of the charity events my mom, aunt and I put on. Their cupcakes are always a hit - their unusual flavors - and the 'normal' ones - are crazy good and always a hit when we have them.
