A few weeks ago I went to Williams Sonoma to exchange some cereal bowls I bought. Unfortunately the ones I needed were now an online only item :( Of course the sales associate asked me if I would like to look around before I did my return, so I did. This is always a mistake (especially in Williams Sonoma, there are countless things I would kill for!!!)
One of my favorite things to look at in the store are the speciality food items. I love cooking, food, eating, you get the idea. When I stumbled upon these sleek modern canisters I noticed it said "Sprinkles." As in "Sprinkles Cupcakes." I had to buy one! I've never had a sprinkles cupcake, but they are among the popular of these gourmet cupcake shops popping up all over the place.
I couldn't pick just one to try, so I bought two. Chocolate & Banana. They are both delicious. I would have to say Banana was my favorite. At the recommendation of the sales associate, I made cream cheese icing instead of the icing recipe that Sprinkles recommended. They were to die for! Sprinkles even gives you their signature disks to top your cupcake with!
I didn't have a chance to snap a photo of the banana cupcake, but I did take a picture of the chocolate. I tweaked the icing on this one as well. I used the vanilla icing recipe from the banana cupcake instead of the chocolate icing. I'm not a processional icing decorator so they may look a little messy but they tasted ohhh sooo good!
