Trophy Cupcakes
(206) 390-0900
At Trophy Cupcakes, we believe every day should be a party — filled with colorful confetti, exquisite treats and happy surprises. We are confection creators, fun curators and magicians of mmmmm. And we pour our hearts into bringing you pure party perfection. Our cupcakes start with the finest ingredients, like European chocolate, Madagascar bourbon vanilla and local sweet cream butter. Then they’re made magical with hand-piped buttercream, rich French sprinkles and smile-making decorations. Each and every one is a mouthwatering masterpiece with a party hat on top! Trophy was founded in 2007 by dessert-lover Jennifer Shea and her husband Mike Williamson. Jennifer is a life-long baker and party-maker, winning accolades as early as age eight, in the form of 4-H blue ribbons for her grandma’s pumpkin roll. Her passion for perfecting dreamy, decadent desserts has made Trophy Seattle’s favorite boutique cupcake bakery.

Find the perfect space for your next event nestled on the campus of Westminster College. We have unique locations to host anything from birthday parties and baby showers, to your next executive luncheon.

We have many spaces to consider, but the Kim T. Adamson Alumni House and Burton Executive Conference Room are two worthwhile spaces to keep in mind.
