Blissed out on sun from the weekend? Keep the sleeveless spirit going with Cupcake Royale's annual Ice Cream Social at all branches today. Line up from 2 to 8 p.m. and get a free scoop of your choice at the Capitol Hill, Downtown, Queen Anne, and Ballard Cupcake Royales today, or go hand-held with a free ice cream sandwich at the West Seattle and Madrona branches during the same hours.
As if free didn't already seal the deal, Cupcake Royale sweetens the deal by unveiling three of its new Chef Series flavors today: Smoky Rocky Road with Salted Marcona Almond Bark (a collaboration with Renee Erickson), Smoked Maple Old Fashioned with Luxardo Cherries (from Radiator Whiskey's Tyler Palagi), and Honey Ricotta with Pistachio Brittle (Ethan Stowell). The Chef Series ice cream is slotted to run all summer, with three new flavors rotating in each month from chefs Josh Henderson, Tamara Murphy, John Sundstrom, Brady Williams, and more.
