Hey there cupcake

Photo by Ryan Prins

Last weekend I tried my first Yellow Leaf cupcake at Bedlam Coffee in Belltown. A strawberry cupcake. It was deliciously dense, moist and reminded me of all the strawberry-flavored treats I loved as a kid. But better.

Trophy Cupcakes, watch your back.

Seattle: “El Diablo” at Tango

El Diablo ($10)

Bittersweet cube of sinfully rich dark chocolate graced with cayenne, spicy almonds, cocoa nibs and burnt meringue finished with a tequila caramel sauce

I actually didn’t have this dessert but Ryan did. I think the description and the photo alone does it justice. The one bit I had was incredible. That said, I think that’s all I could handle. Needless to say, it’s a pretty intense dessert, but if you’re a big chocolate fan, I recommend taking it for a spin.

As for me, I’ll stick to the pumpkin flan. You really can’t lose.
