The world’s first cupcake bakery. Every cupcake baker, designer, engineer, and aficionado idols it. Every cupcake bakery hopes to succeed it. Celebrities love it. There’s only one cupcake place that fits the bill… Sprinkles Cupcakes. And I was fortunate enough to finally try one of their famous cupcakes.
I threw my stuff down and giddily peered into the bag. Mmmm, I immediately received a whiff of apple and cream cheese. I unwrapped the box, careful not to tear any edges or tip over the cupcake. Once I finally opened the box, I looked into the bag and let out a gleeful giggle! “How cute are you!” I exclaimed.
I’ve been dreaming of the day I would taste my first Sprinkles cupcake, and I couldn’t believe that this day was upon me!
The cupcake delivered to me was the Carmel Apple, one of the featured fall flavors.
Even after four days, the cake was still light, airy and fresh! I was seriously skeptical of how the cake would taste after all that time AND travelling 1400 miles to me in Kansas City. The cake even had a real chunks of apple in it!
I’m usually a vanilla buttercream type of gal, but Sprinkles may have converted me. Their cream cheese frosting was one of the best I’ve ever tried. The frosting was pure, smooth, and had a perfect balance of sweetness. Again, I couldn’t believe how fresh the frosting tasted!
I fell in love with how they decorated the cake. Firstly, the frosting neatly covered the entire top of the cake. It’s rare to find a bakery that will spread the frosting edge to edge. This way you are guaranteed to have a splash of frosting with every bite. Also, the one little ghost sprinkle was so simple, so cute.
There is a reason why Sprinkles took off! Honestly, I thought it would be more hype than anything else, but I was definitely wrong. They have created a unique cupcake experience, and they have done it right. If you are fortunate enough to live near a Sprinkles or visit a city where they are located, based on flavor alone, it is worth a visit. I’m confident that the in-store experience will be remarkable as well.
