Vegans, rejoice! Sprinkles in Scottsdale cares about our happiness. They have a vegan red velvet cupcake that makes me squeal. The cake part of the cupcake is almost as good as my husband’s “made from scratch” cupcakes, but he hasn’t been able to master frosting like theirs yet. One note: don’t bother trying to eat the hard sugar “V” on top. It’s a tooth-breaker and not worth the effort. Sorry gluten-free vegan friends, they do have gluten-free cupcakes, and vegan cupcakes, but not gluten-free vegan cupcakes.
You can follow Sprinkles on Twitter for daily free cupcake offers (but they go fast).
Sprinkles cupcakes are not quite as good as BabyCakes, but since I live in Phoenix, not NYC or LA, I’m alright with that.
