Its range of flavors is executed masterfully, from classics like Red Velvet and banana cake with vanilla icing to more exotic flavors such as Chai Latte. Sprinkles' cupcakes are light, but not too sweet. The frosting is rich and creamy while the cake is flavorful and moist. Sprinkles cupcakes are priced at $3.25 each; $36 for a dozen.
Since Sprinkles opened its first cupcake bakery in Beverly Hills in 2005, its freshly baked treats have inspired throngs of devoted fans including such stars as Tyra Banks, Russell Crowe and Paris Hilton to Katie Holmes, Oprah Winfrey and Teri Hatcher.
Sprinkles may just well be the original luxury cupcake store. Inside, you will find a Cupcake Bar, which is the perfect place to enjoy a freshly baked cupcake along with a cup of coffee or a tall, cold glass of milk. The bakery is credited with inspiring a national cupcake craze as reported by the New York Times, USA Today, the Today Show and Nightline.
Unfortunately, Sprinkles only delivers by courier in the local markets in which it has stores. It will ship its cupcake mixes and other retail items, however. The mix, which makes one dozen cupcakes, comes in a cannister that is packed with the dry ingredients you will need to make them at home as well as the confectioners' dots made so famous by Sprinkles and a recipe for frosting (retail price: $14). To place an order, call (888) 220-2210 or go Sprinkles' online store.
Sprinkles locations include Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Newport Beach, Scottsdale, La Jolla, Palo Alto, and Georgetown. Sprinkles will open in New York at 780 Lexington Avenue in February 2011.
