"Let's be clear, they're not just pint-sized cakes. Cupcakes are something else entirely. At Sprinkles Cupcakes, with over tantalizing flavors to satisfy the sweet tooth, we get it right. Baked fresh in small batches throughout the day, 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 cupcakes are a deliciously sophisticated update on an American classic.

The best pasalubong from anyone who is coming from LA is the Hollywood's famous Sprinkles Cupcakes. It is so far the best cupcake I've ever tasted. They bake it fresh on that day itself using fresh ingredients with a satisfying icing that is not too sweet just right. The cake is soft like a sponge and crumbles when you bite it. No wonder, this cupcake bakeshop was copied here in Manila. Do you recognize the similarity with the box design and font?
Just look at Aidan's face when I gave him his surprise pasalubong.... I got pogi points from my wife because of the cupcakes :) Sprinkles is located along South Santa Monica boulevard and it is already near the LAX airport. The cupcakes taste great for a day or two and they put it in a nice recycled box with elegant recycled fork and knife.
On a Sunday morning, there is a long line outside Sprinkles cupcakes along S Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
Thanks to my brother Enzo and wife Carmina for taking the time to bring me here to buy pasalubong for Rache and Aidan.
There are a total of 20 flavors and each cupcake costs $3.25 (P100+).
The Sprinkles Cupcake Mix is good as a pasalubong for those people who prefers to bake their cupcakes :)
Oh, these are so cute and I was tempted to buy the happy birthday candles.
Most of the cupcake have the signature cute dots and our favorites are:
Red Velvet -- southern style light chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting (the best seller)
Lemon - fragrant Lemon cake with lemon vanilla frosting flecked with zest
Black and White - Belgian Dark Chocolate Cake with creamy Vanilla frosting
Strawberry -- pure strawberry cake with sweet strawberry frosting
Check out the other flavors.
Thanks Ate Mina for the treat for the entire food trip in LA!! Sarap!
