Life List Day 268 - Try Sprinkles Cupcakes

There's a chichi cupcake store in Beverly Hills called Sprinkles that I've been wanting to try. There's apparently always a line to buy these cupcakes, which run $3.50 each and are supposedly divine.

Today while I was in Beverly Hills getting my hair cut, I walked the half-mile or so to Sprinkles to try them for myself.

There was a line of about 10 people ahead of me - when I got into the tiny bakery, it smelled outrageously good - not sugary good, but something buttery/fatty/cakey good. Each day, they offer a dozen or so varieties, rotating the selection. I bought a red velvet with white icing, a white cupcake with coconut, and a chocolate with peppermint.

So far I've split the red velvet with my son. The icing was really delicious (and in fact, you can buy a "shot" of icing only for 75 cents) but, to be honest, the cakey part was just okay. Then again, I've never had a red velvet cake, so maybe this is all there is to it.

To give the other flavors a fair shake, I may have to take bites out of them before they get stale.

The sacrifices I make for this life list...

I'm impressed. You're life list is still going strong. Cupcakes do sound inviting... so delicious and yummy :) Red velvet is a personal favorite of mine after trying it at a family gathering. White cupcake with coconut... sounds pretty good.

Yay cupcakes! I loved The Next Thing On My List (and this blog) so was happy to see my favorite dessert on here. I run a cupcake blog you might enjoy, though we've been accused of making people very hungry!

I love cupcakes. Best treat ever.
Sprinkles is pretty good. But you have to try Yummy Cupcakes. So so so good. There is one is Santa Monica and one in Burbank.
