Do You Love Sprinkles Cupcakes?

It's a sad, but all too real, reality that I have never had a Sprinkles cupcake. Indeed, one of the original cupcake bakeries in the country has continually alluded me. There are rumors they have plans to expand to D.C., but like so many other rumors, I'll believe it when I see it.

Meanwhile, they've opened shop in both Chicago and Houston in the past few months. Given my large fan base in both of these areas, I imagine many of you have now ventured out to Sprinkles to get your fix, which means you'll be excited to know you can now flaunt your love of Sprinkles on their new fan site.

IloveSprinkles.com is a simple concept--just submit pics of your favorite cuppies. Since it's still in "beta", you can't yet peruse the gallery. But if you've been lucky enough to taste one of these sweet treats, go on over there and upload a picture of your delectable delight; they're choosing one winner to receive a $500 Sprinkles gift card! That's more then enough to cover the cost of shipping me a dozen when you win ;)

NEVER had one? All this hype, especially from yours truly, maybe you'll end up being disappointed! All I know is I love them and I'm not as well versed in the cupcake boutique world as you. :)

I've eaten a LOT of cupcakes, including some from the Sprinkles in my home state (AZ). I would classify them as a disappointment, because I'm not a huge fan of the extremely sweet or cupcakes that are 60% frosting. It is harder to create moist baked goods in our climate, which they seemed to be struggling with - they cake was pretty dry.

I'm a fan of their branding (cute store!) and happy that they're successful (they gave other cupcakery start-ups a boost) but the actual product... meh.
