Seattle's cupcake craze hits Greenlake


Cake Envy, Seattle’s newest cupcake boutique will make it’s debut with a special grand opening celebration on Saturday, October 1st from 1-4pm. Located on Greenlake Drive in the Lakeside Plaza, Cake Envy specializes in gourmet cakes and handcrafted cupcakes made fresh daily using local and organic ingredients. While studying culinary arts at The Art Institute of Seattle, owner Helen Noh discovered her love for baking. After graduation she went on to work as part of the Research and Development team at Starbucks, but inevitably found herself dreaming of cake. “I was spending my nights and weekends baking for friends and family,” says Helen, “and I knew I had to find a way to pursue my dream!” Eventually, one of Helen’s custom cakes ended up on the cover of Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom magazine, and she knew it was time to get serious and open up her own cake shop. “It was then that the vision for Cake Envy was born,” adds Noh. The rest is history.

To perfectly compliment the sweet treats, Cake Envy will also serve Caffe Umbria coffee and tea, plus a carefully curated selection of beer, wine and champagne. For baking novices who want to learn the tricks of the trade, Cake Envy will also offer a special series of “how-to” workshops including classes on fondant, gumpaste flowers (a Cake Envy speciality), cupcake classes for children, and even a class for ambitious brides who want to bake their own wedding cake!

In an effort to support other women-owned businesses in the community, Cake Envy will also carry a variety of product lines including cupcake wrappers by Bella Cupcake Couture, CRAVE Seattle city guides, and Stickfiggy cards by Jane Marshall with more product lines to be added this fall.


Highlights for Saturday’s grand opening celebration include hand-drawn pictures of guests with their favorite cupcakes by an on-site caricature artist, cupcake tastings, and raffle drawings every 30-minutes for a variety of prizes including the grand prize: a custom wedding cake for one lucky bride!* Get your weekend off to a sweet start and join the fun this Saturday from 1-4pm at Cake Envy where you can “Have your cake- and your cupcake too!™”

*Restrictions Apply. Complimentary cake is for a max of 120 servings, consultation and design work included. Delivery and set-up, not included).
