One reason we were excited to travel to California was to be reunited with one of our all time favorite sweet treats, Sprinkles cupcakes. Candance Nelson opened the first Sprinkles on Santa Monica Boulevard after having visited Magnolia Bakery on a trip to New York. Since their opening in 2005, Sprinkles has opened twelve locations nationwide, they have a Sprinklesmobile designed by "Pimp My Ride's"West Coast Customs, a line of mixes sold at Williams-Sonoma, an iPhone app, a cupcake ATM, and most recently two shops sellingSprinkles own ice cream counterpart. Sprinkles' list of ever changingflavors is highly drool inducing, but we each have our favorites we keep coming back to (Dad/Lemon, Mom/Coconut, Morgan/Cinnamon Sugar, and me/Black and White). Luckily we were able to try several flavors, my new favorites being Pumpkin and Triple Cinnamon. We were also able to try Sprinkles Ice Cream for the first time and it was equally as delicious. The decided favorite was the Sprinkles Sundae, a scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two cupcake halves. Have no fear, Georgia friends, Sprinkles will soon be opening a location (with cupcakes and ice cream) in Lenox Square Mall.
