Back in July we were contacted by Dumi Maraire, AKA as Draze, a local hip-hop artist here in Seattle.  He reached out to tell us about this new project he was working on called “Seattle’s Own” a new record featuring Porter Ray of Sub Pop records and Royce The Choice.  One track off his record entitled “Seattle Sweeties” was dedicated to celebrating diversity in women.  Focused primarily on the women of the Pacific Northwest, a subject we were familiar with!

Draze’s idea was to work with Cupcake Royale to create a series of cupcakes inspired by the song “Seattle Sweeties“.  We met over coffee, listened intently, and grew more and more excited about his vision and the project.

He sent us over a list of some favors and names he had been crafting up and we got to work:

  • Vanilla Dream
  • Choco Latte
  • Cinnamon Chai
  • Caramel Dream
  • Lemon Cherry Blossom
  • Banana Cream

Draze and his team stopped by our Capitol Hill cafe one afternoon to taste all of the different cupcake versions and we landed a pretty amazing Seattle Sweeties Series of Cupcakes ready to roll out Sunday November 1st!  We have so much more to tell you about the project so stay tuned and keep reading!
