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!


  1. I have to say I think crave cupcakes are better. I liked the red velvet but their chocolate wasn't nearly as good as crave

  2. I actually think Hey Cupcakes are better, but before I had one of theirs I was obsessed with Sprinkles. I once made the Red Velvet for Brandon's sisters birthday, and as they were sitting on the counter to cool before icing Marley my 3 pound Yorkie somehow found his way onto the counter and ate 3. I don't know if I was more upset about not having those three to eat, or worried if he was going to throw up red and stain the hell out of our carpet:(
