I had heard about the wonderful cupcake cafe in Beverly Hills called Sprinkles, but had no idea that it was the world’s first cupcake bakery! The owners were sure on to something when they opened in the spring of 2005…the cupcake craze continues to grow and so do the number of cupcake bakeries. Sprinkles itself has 7 locations nationwide (Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Newport Beach, Phoenix and San Fransisco) with plans to open more soon.
These photos, from the Sprinkles website, give you an idea of how they decorate their cupcakes. Like the Sprinkles logo, the cupcakes have a clean, fresh look that is very eye–catching. You can imagine just by looking at the pictures how creamy and yummy the frosting must be!
The made-from-scratch cupcakes are described on the website as “simple and satisfying desserts handcrafted from the best ingredients.” Ingredients like “sweet cream butter, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, fresh bananas and carrots, real strawberries and natural citrus zests.” Yum! And the cupcakes are decorated in a variety of ways: with the Sprinkles trademark modern “dots,” rich chocolate sprinkles from France, or seasonal sugar decorations.
If you’re lucky enough to live near a Sprinkles cupcake cafe, you probably know how good they are. I have not been to a Sprinkles yet, but the next time I’m near one, I’m going! 🙂
