I know that sometimes this might seem like a blog devoted to Cupcake Royale, but that's just because I love 'em so much! Today, my dear, dear friend Jody Hall celebrated the 5th anniversary of her first store in Madrona! And of course she turned it into a food drive because that girl is always doing something to help out her community. Did you know that she donates nearly TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND cupcakes annually to the great citizens of Seattle?
Tonight, her community got the chance to celebrate her. A huge crowd turned out at the Madrona store to give a big THANK YOU to Jody and crew! The wine was flowing from 5 - 9pm.

Jody's events always bring out the nicest folks. You can really come as strangers and leave as friends. But that was always her intent -- to create a third place in the community.
Here's to you, Jody Hall. Cupcake-Maker, Community-Builder, Doyenne of Cream Cheese frosting!
