I was like a little girl in a candy store that very first day that I step foot at Sprinkles New York in Lexington Avenue. It’s a wish that has been granted, and I can’t be more happy. Since its opening, I vowed to get my “treats” every month although for this month (it opened in May), I haven’t had my fill yet.
My husband and I was there a week after it opened. There was a line outside the store when we got there. We were determined to get a few cupcakes to bring home and in no time, we were inside.
Only to be greeted with another line, but what the heck, we already waited outside.
The six cupcakes that we bought was a nice treat to end an awesome but tiring day in Manhattan.
They are by no means cheap, but they are simply delicious. They are not the usual run of the mill cupcakes that is overwhelmingly sweet and loaded with sugar.
“Sprinkles Cupcakes are handcrafted from the finest ingredients, including sweet cream butter, bittersweet Belgian chocolate, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, fresh bananas and carrots, real strawberries and natural citrus zests. Topped with Sprinkles trademark modern dots, rich chocolate sprinkles from France or seasonal sugar decorations, Sprinkles gourmet cupcakes are a deliciously sophisticated update on an American classic.” (source: sprinkles.com)
