Sprinkles takes the cake

While in California I ventured over to the legendary Sprinkles for cupcakes—a must-do on the list. I loved the pink and chocolate brown decor and the flavor choices all sounded delicious. I couldn't choose just one!

After happily munching away, I have to say, Sprinkles takes the cake over Georgetown Cupcake. The taste of the actual cake was more flavorful and not dry at all with sickeningly-sweet fluffy icing and the cupcakes were bigger. Delish!



I had the Lemon Coconut and Strawberry and Bf had the Red Velvet and the Cinnamon Sugar. The Lemon Coconut was probably the best cupcake I've ever had and Bf thought the Red Velvet was extremely tasty as well. Two icing-covered thumbs up to Sprinkles!

I seem to be making the cupcake rounds so I'm thinking I may need a trip to NYC to sample Magnolia and Crumb next! I wish :)

Yes come to NYC! There are so many cupcake places here it is insane!!!

We used to have one close to us in AZ, but then we moved. I knew they were great cupcakes, but until I started tasting all of the others and nothing even came close.

Now I miss them terribly!

Their peanut butter and chocolate cupcake...TO DIE FOR!

OMG! Sprinkles is my FAVE- whenever I'm invited to dinner at a friend's it's become my custom to bring a box of Sprinkles cupcakes for dessert, and they're always the hit of the evening. Red velvet is my personal favorite!

Annie said...

YUM. The red velvet and strawberry sound amazing. I can't remember which one of my blogger friends but they did a post on a tour of NYC and cupcake tastings not long ago. Ha!

In response to your comment -- yes, M. went to Elon Law!!! Long live Elon is such a friendly phrase to hear!!

As for your cupcake tour....I was gifted some red velvet Sprinkles cupcake mix (from Williams Sonoma) and I CANNOT wait to make them after my wedding!

Also, if you do make it to NYC for some cupcakes, you should also try out Billy's Bakery -- their carrot cake cupcake is my FAV! :)

I love trying different cupcake places and Sprinkles is definitely on the list. The Red Velvet and Strawberry sound really yummy to me. This is just another reason to visit California!

Melissa said...

I love Crumbs! They have one like 15 minutes from my house in Jersey now. If you do come up, I will definitely join you on a cupcake tour! They are my favorite

Those cupcakes look good. I'm with you, I could stand a trip to NYC too. Wouldn't it be fun to check out the cupcakes at those bakeries? Thanks for sharing your pictures and I'm glad you had a great trip. Love & blessings from NC!

Drool..... I want to go to Sprinkles so badly! We have a cupcake place here (well it's almost in NC) called Carolina Cupcakery and they are definitely without a doubt amazing.

BUT nothing (IMO - I haven't tried Sprinkles yet) compares to a Crumbs cupcake. I think I had one every day on our last NYC vacay and then I took a bunch home. I've been considering ordering some online - I just hope they make it here tasting just as good!

Now I REALLY want a cupcake....

Trade you some pimento cheese for Sprinkles!

BAH said...

One of my friends brought me a Sprinkles cupcake from L.A. last year, but I have to say that I prefer Magnolia in NYC (and Sweet, of course).

Then again, a cupcake is a cupcake :)
