It was a gorgeous day (check out the reflection in the window) and the line out in front of the store was not very long. For those of you not familiar with Sprinkles, there are several locations in several states, and their website is a gem of interesting information.
The inside of the store is very small and minimal. The highlight of the Sprinkles experience is the extremely friendly staff and of course, the amazingly delicious cupcakes. Some cupcakes, such as their famous red velvet cupcake, are served every day. Other flavors vary depending on the day.
In this view from the Sprinkles website (*photo credit Victoria Pearson), you can see how each cupcake is color coded with 2 round candies on top. This is how you know what flavor it is. You can also pre-order different candies to go on top for special occasions. And for Valentine's Day, many of the cupcakes wore cute little hearts.
So now we come home with all our cupcakes and I get to play with them! Here are all our red velvet lovelies. We've tried many of their flavors and have several favorites, but the red velvet remains our unanimous all-time favorite :)
If you look real close you can see just a hint of red cakeAh, here are the red velvets mixed with a few other flavors - vanilla/vanilla (with the white sprinkles on top), strawberry/strawberry (a favorite of mine - the strawberry frosting is DI-VINE), and an unusual cinnamon/sugar cupcake with no frosting at all (!!!)
