Sprinkles Cupcakes!!!

What is new and has dots all over? ...Sprinkles Cupcakes! Yupp... that's right, I finally had a chance to check out the talk of the town's famous cupcake place! Unfortunately, our other 'Krazy for Kupcake's' girl Melanie couldn't come with me, but a few of my good friends (Sarah & Karen) volunteered to share this wonderful experience with me! Here's a video of what went down: Enjoy!

As you can see, I bought four cupcakes: Strawberry, Cherry, Key Lime & Dark Chocolate. The two flavors Cherry & Key Lime are their summer flavors, which they stop selling on August 1, so I had to get them before they were gone! Each cupcake costed $3.25.

I was pretty excited to go scope out the new cupcake place! I was pretty upset that Melanie couldn't join me in my trip because we've been LITERALLY counting down the days until Sprinkles came to town. It opened last Monday, the 26th of July. And when we visited the line was REALLY long. We waited in line almost for an HOUR. Luckily we made it in time before it closed (at 7 PM). But anyway, once we got inside, the place looked really colorful and very modern. They had a glass window for a display of each cupcake flavor, kind of like More's Cupcakes.

What I thought of the cupcakes? Well, they were of course good. Each cupcake was very moist, just the way I like it and the frosting was very smooth and definitely gave the cupcake more flavor. My favorite cupcake out of the four I chose was definitely the cherry! Awe, too bad it's not going to be there anymore... But at least I had a chance to try it! The key lime was my second favorite, those two I would have to say had the most flavor. The dark chocolate was a tad bit TOO sweet for me and the strawberry wasn't the best. Each cupcake was topped with a sugary dot candy for their signature. Also they put a different dotted color on each cupcake to represent the flavor.

Overall, the place was pretty good. I'm not going to lie, I still think Molly's Cupcakes are the best so far. Sprinkles is up there, BUT they aren't as creative as Molly's. Sprinkles cupcakes kind of taste like Sugar Bliss Bakery off of Wabash Ave. Both places have the same tastes/textures in their cupcake and frosting. I still thought it was delicious, and I would definitely go again! Like Sarah said, the staff was super super friendly too!

But yeah, now that I've had a chance to try Sprinkles... time to hunt down FLIRTY's CUPCAKES!!!!!!!

Until next time...


Love you :)

I definitely agree that sprinkles is not nearly as creative as Molly's. But, sprinkles is still good. I really liked the mix we made. I can't wait to buy another mix/more cupcakes from them!

Haha. I don't know, I have to disagree with you. Wait til you try FLIRTYS. Sprinkles is so overrated honestly. I didn't enjoy the mix that much it was too sweet and "brownie-like".

Melanie said...

Hahaha that's funny because it was really brownie like (my dad mentioned it today) but seriously my dad and Paul LOVED it. And I think Julia really liked it too.
