August flavors!

August Berry Trio (l to r):
Double Chocolate Raspberry, Blackberry Buckle, Strawberry Shortcake

August ranks as one of the region's sweetest months so it only makes sense that our seasonal flavors would reflect that.

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake
There's no way around it, Strawberry Shortcake was this year's favorite Strawberry Festival flavor! We heard from you on Twitter (follow us!) and Facebook (like us!) and in the cafes. We totally get it especially since we've had more than our fair share of them ourselves. The light, strawberry-flavored whipped cream frosting ringed in graham cracker crumbs goes perfectly with the sweet strawberry-infused vanilla cake. Not carrying it over would have been cruel.

Blackberry Crumble

Blackberry Buckle
Rumor has it that upon tasting this new flavor, one of our employees actually teared up. A blackberry cake topped with a blackberry whipped cream frosting is finished with a cinnamon streusel crunch. We can't guarantee that it'll make you cry with delicious happiness, but let's just say that we wouldn't judge you if it did.


Double Chocolate Raspberry

Double Chocolate Raspberry
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. First, your tart raspberries and semi-sweet chocolate chips, gently folded into a tasty vanilla cake. Second, how you are topped with a fluffy, white chocolate buttercream frosting and garnished with a fresh raspberry and chocolate curls. It all adds up to a double dose of sweetness with just a hint of tart. Delicious with a latte!

But this is a love that can't last forever; these flavors are only around through August 31. Have a sweet summer from Cupcake Royale!
