Hello Cupcake is a bakery that specializes in gourmet cupcakes.
1740 Pacific Ave, Tacoma, WA
Hello Cupcake is a quaint and delicate shop tucked into the downtown Tacoma strip across from the History Museum and Union Station. The only thing this bakery makes is cupcakes, and they do so expertly. The buttercream frostings and springy cakes are baked fresh daily, and each dessert has its own signature design on it, the most notable of which is the red velvet cupcake with the chocolate design wedged into its frosting.
The excellent sweetness of the desserts are nearly surpassed by the cuteness of the shop itself: the shop girls wear frilly aprons, the cupcakes sit on elegant little platters, and the furniture is quaint enough to make to feel like you are standing in an over-sized dollhouse. We sat in the window booths, kibitzing over our crumbs and watching as the rain weeped over the pavement and Union Station’s tall dark windows. Inside Hello Cupcake, everything was sweet and cheerful, like a dream between a late night and early morning.
