Even more exciting than Sprinkles cupcakes, however, are free Sprinkles cupcakes, which is just what the Beverly Hills shop gave me (and 4,999 others) on Tuesday, April 13 in celebration of its 5th birthday.
How strange to not be told "No pictures!" like normal in the shop!
Fearing crowds and perishing the thought of not receiving a free cupcake, I arrived early--right at 12PM when the giveaway started.
Bridget Marquardt, formerly of the E! show "The Girls Next Door," was on hand to meet fans and hand out cupcakes...although she did more of the former than the latter.
Like a good girl, I waited all day to eat my cupcakes after dinner.
Sprinkles Cupcakes are the perfect combination of a sweet, perfectly dense cake and rich (but not too rich) frosting. Also, whereas some cupcakes' size leaves you wanting more and others' leave you in a diabetic coma, these are just the right size for a snack or dessert.
I ordered my two favorite flavors: red velvet and strawberry.
Don't you just love when you get things for free for which you would have gladly paid money? I do!
