Sprinkles - 5Today is our lucky day everybody because Sprinkles Cupcakes‘ (50 East Walton Street) ATM is loaded with “golden tickets” for customers to win their choice of 2-pints of the Red Velvet handcrafted ice cream shipped directly to their home. ALSO, the first 100 customers will receive a FREE scoop of the Red Velvet handcrafted Sprinkles Ice Cream (sweet cream layered with bites of Sprinkles Cupcakes’ iconic red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting).

In honor of this majestic day, I went where no ordinary person has gone before: the KITCHEN of Sprinkles Cupcakes! I learned how to make the perfect Sprinkles Sundae and it was the best thing ever to happen to me. Try these steps at home!
  1. First, remove the cupcake wrapper from the cupcake.
  2. Sprinkles Cupcakes are delicate, so you’ll want to gently remove the cupcake top from the bottom. Do this by holding the cupcake top with one hand.
  3. Hold it still. With the other hand, slowly twist the cupcake bottom clockwise until it cleanly separates from the top.
  4. Pop the cupcake bottom into a glass. Add a heaping scoop of ice cream. Finish it off with the cupcake top.
  5. ENJOY!!!
