Review: Sprinkles Cupcakes in Dallas
For Valentine's Day, they have red hot velvet, a red velvet cupcake with a spicy cinnamon cream cheese frosting.
Sprinkles originated in Beverly Hills, and the bakery has been credited by many as the originator of the recent cupcake trend. It has been the center of numerous stories of celebrity cravings and lines around the block.
Closer to home, Dallas has a famous location of its own that does tend to have a line out the door during lunchtime, but it moves quickly through the small bakery.
The most popular flavors, like red velvet and dark chocolate, are available everyday, but specialty flavors such as pumpkin and coconut can be caught only on certain days. The bakery is also constantly coming out with seasonal flavors that are available for a limited time. The flavors of the day, and of the season, are available on their website.
Currently, for Valentine's Day, they have red hot velvet, a red velvet cupcake with a spicy cinnamon cream cheese frosting. They even have a specially designed Valentine’s Day XOX box that contains decorated “X,” “O,” and heart cupcakes.
Stop in for a treat after lunch in Preston Center or make a special trip to bring home a box of cupcakes.
Fans of the bakery can “like” Sprinkles Cupcakes on Facebook to receive several messages each day for free cupcakes. The messages usually give a password that must be whispered at the counter by the next 25 or so people who will receive that day’s free cupcake flavor.
Sprinkles even sells cupcakes for dogs. These cupcakes are not just miniature versions of their human cupcakes, though. They are made without dairy or sugar and are not made on location; they're from a local dog bakery, to make sure they are healthy for pups to eat.
Cupcakes cost $3.50 each or $39 for one dozen and can be ordered online as well for pick-up or delivery in their local markets. Visit Sprinkles.com for details.
