On the obsessive behavior spectrum, you’re a three. You may have a certain Vivace barista’s schedule memorized, and, yes, you posted on the Top Chef blog, but you draw the line at collecting. (Well, except for shoes.)
Not so for local baker Jennifer Shea, whose party fixation is off the charts. Her collection of soiree trimmings was getting so out of hand that she opened Trophy Cupcakes, a charming new bakery and party shop in Wallingford.
The bright, 1940s-style spot mixes Egg Press cards with one-of-a-kind finds (vintage cake toppers and streamers). The almost-too-pretty-to-eat cupcakes come in flavors like red velvet with bourbon cream cheese and lemon meringue.
Ask Shea to organize a cupcake decorating party for you and your friends. Or order a Belgian hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows all for you.
No need to feel lonely.
It’s just a party of one.
Trophy Cupcakes and Party, 1815 North 45th Street, Wallingford Center, suite 209 (206-632-7020 or trophycupcakes.com).
