Food Trucks, Google Places, Seattle Met and a Trophy Cupcake Give Away

Screen Shot 2016-04-20 at 3.28.13 PM

On sale now this week (March 12-16th) at Trophy Cupcakes Wallingford store “Deanna’s Tropical Stampede”.

Not long ago, I won a contest. The prize? I got to create a cupcake with Trophy Cupcakes on behalf of the Mobile Food Rodeo.

After meeting with the lovely Jennifer Shea, owner of Trophy Cupcakes, the cupcake was created. And it was named “Deanna’s Tropical Stampede”.

And there was a party.

And it was fun thanks to so many people including Mobile Food Rodeo, Trophy Cupcakes, Google Places and Seattle Met.


Oh, and did I mention the cupcakes? They were minis. And delicious. And beautiful.

    I love food truck food and love cupcakes! I’ve had pizzas, gyros, tacos, burgers, breakfast foods, hotdogs, sandwiches and CUPCAKES! Wish I could have made it to last weekend’s event!!!

  2. Hello cupcake! Deanna, these cupcakes are even more adorable now that I see that they are mini’s! You are so talented. Did I ever say, that “the clever culinarian” is the perfect name for you? I know you are enjoying your gift of creativity! Congrats! xo

    I have tried a few, and I love our food trucks! From burgers to tacos to ice cream… there’s finally a decent Seattle food truck culture.

  4. This is a wonderful accolade. So proud of you!

    Hi Deanna! The cupcakes were delicious. Divine even. Hmm, I think it’s been too long since I ate from a food truck, cause I can’t remember what I have eaten, I know it was at Fremont Sunday Market though, does the pizza oven on wheels count? Anyway, last Sunday my daughter got some fresh donuts from a food truck at the market, she shared one with me, they were very good, even though I had pretty much hit my sugar limit for the day I could not resist. 🙂

    Those cupcakes were darling and so delicious. Food trucks are such a great asset to the foodie world, I have had BBQ ribs, Tacos , and many more. Trophy Cupcakes are so yummy and if you ever get a chance to try them be sure you get a Tiger Tail or Chocolate Coffee flavors they are Amazing ! <3

    First off, LOVED the cupcake at the party. I loved the lightness of the frosting with the chunky cake. It was sweet yet soooo good. I wish I could buy them and eat them with a large glass of milk. Yum!

    Food Truck Experience: I love that Seattle finally has food trucks and lots of them too! I eat at a truck at least once a week but my favorite truck experience would have to be the first time I went to Where Ya at Matt. I love New Orleans food so I was a little too excited about my first dining experience. I ordered a fried shrimp po boy, gumbo, jumbalaya, beignets with coffee, and a slice of pie. MM mm soo good!

    I love the skillet food truck, where ya at matt and marination station. I can never stop ordering food from there whenever I encounter their truck.

    My favorite food truck was one from my childhood. It would start delivering at midnight and run ’til about 4am, for those late night party goers.

    It was a business called Midnight Munchies and it had quite the loyal following of patrons.

    Almost as great a following as The Clever Culinarian 🙂


  18. Marisa

    I am forever in love with El Camión on Aurora! My favorite food truck and my favorite tacos.

  19. Barbara coccia

    I use to eat from a break truck that came around when I was working in Canoga Park CA. There had a variety of items and back then it was an adventure. Everyday I would try something different. Ate my very first Honey Buns from there. Good times, good times. 🙂

  20. Andrea

    I love the food truck!! When I worked at Starbucks, it came every day at the same time and had the best breakfast stuff!!!!

  21. Armando

    Definitely a fan of the various food trucks around. My go to has to be Skillet’s poutine. First time I ever had it was from Skillet and have been hooked since!

  22. Berry

    I haven’t tried any of the Seattle food trucks (YET!) but I have tried them in other cities… best so far was the hot dog carts in Toronto — WOW!
