    Epic! I love Royale..especially when they don't run out of cupcakes which is pretty much everyday after 6p.

    Oh, you really should not have posted this story. ;-)
    Death by chocolate indeed.

    the deathcake is amazing, but so so rich. A sample size might be the right amount. I will definitely be there for this one.

    deathcake royale isnt all that great. try their other ones, this one is straight hype.

    I completely disagree. The Deathcake is GREAT, but should definitely be shared. It's far too dense for one person to finish alone.

    I was going to get one once, but it seemed the price was a bit ridiculous, something like $7 or so? Is this still the case? I'm fine with paying good money for good dessert, but that seemed to be a bit out of line for what I'd expect to pay for a little square of chocolate at a cupcake store.

    I'll agree with you, but I think ALL of their cupcakes are horrible. I much prefer Trophy.
