First batch 0f 2010! I received a myriad of baking supplies and widgets for the holidays so I am experimenting with fancy frosty decoration (obviously) That said, the infamous "Sprinkles" cupcake boutique out of LA has now packaged their product and made it available to us Midwesterners. Hence, my first batch of vanilla cupcakes courtesy the Sprinkles mix. I would say these are the best tasting cupcakes I have made to date. There is something about their secret ingredients...the top of the cupcakes have a little crunch that is dynamo. I colored my own frosting for fun but traditionally the frosting is white complete with the Sprinkles signature sugar button. These are just bananas; I am ready for my second!
