I really want to like Cupcake Royale. I really do! They use sustainable ingredients, corn based plastics, and soy ink. The owner is very charitable, according to a Pacific Northwest magazine article. Apparently, they even hired a pastry consultant to make the cupcakes moister. I’m just not very fond of Cupcake Royale’s cupcakes….
The chocolate flavor of this cupcake was nice, but the cake was dry. I ate it immediately after purchase, so Cupcake Royale can’t blame the dryness on my waiting to eat it. The cream cheese icing was a little light on cream cheese tang. Rating: ♥♥. I might eat it again if it were free, but I’d have to be really hungry. I would not buy again.
