Trophy Cupcakes

( – Wallingford
How I heard of this place: When Trophy first opened in Wallingford, my friend Mahtab purchased a dozen or more for her husband Ali’s birthday. I sampled one or two while at the party and had to find out from whence they came.
Type of cuisine: Cupcakes. Coffee and tea.
Ambiance: Flighty, light, airy, simple and child-like. Turquoise and brown, white, pink and other such bubble gum shop like colors completely cover the small space that offers pick up and go service. Limited seating is available outside the shop in the Wallingford Center foyer. (Other locations in the University Village and Bellevue are similar.)
What I ordered: I have sampled many of the flavors, including triple chocolate, chocolate vanilla, red velvet, hummingbird, snowball, carrot walnut, chocolate peanut butter, pineapple upside down, chocolate chip mint, lemon cardamom, lemon coconut, lemon strawberry and salted caramel. It seems they continue to add more flavors before I have a chance to sample other daily specials. On this occasion, I sampled the snowball – a chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting and pink coconut.
What I loved: I enjoy the sweet treat now and again and splitting half of a cupcake with a friend during an afternoon slump is a winning option!
Why I loved it: Trophy always presents very playful cupcakes, with colors, patterns and toppings that are like works of art. Each cupcake tends to be too sweet to eat in one sitting, but is perfect to share.
Cost: Average for trendy cupcakes ($3-$4.50 for a fancy cupcake)
