Sprinkles, the May 7th sneak peek

14 May

Last Saturday I attended the sneak peek event for Sprinkles Cupcakes (which officially opened yesterday, by the way), and let’s just say I was very thankful for sending in my RSVP; there was a long line down Lexington, and even those who arrived and were on the guestlist had to wait about half an hour to enter the store.
Once inside, the colorful and playful decor only slightly distracted me from the main attraction: the cupcake display window!  Behind a sheet of glass, wooden shelves were filled with columns and rows of cupcakes — honestly, it reminded me so much of Swirlz Cupcakes in Chicago, I had some high hopes.
I was also super fortunate to meet Sprinkles founder, cupcake-whisperer Candace Nelson.  In fact, I hardly noticed her standing in the corner as everyone clamored around the order counter.  I may have acted like a kid in a candy store (young adult in a cupcake store, same difference) but she was a real sweetheart.  I sampled the strawberry, peanut butter chocolate, cinnamon sugar, and banana cupcakes, tastefully rich and moist but the frostings killed me — too sweet and dense, with the exception of cinnamon sugar, which was coated with cinnamon sugar instead of frosting.  And when I left, I had another four in tow: vanilla, red velvet, black and white, and coconut.  What, they were complimentary!

Never forget

2 May

I will always remember where I was and what I was doing the day those planes hit the Twin Towers. I will remember how my friends couldn’t care less about school and how they worried, even cried. Now, I will be able to remember the day when the man who caused such devastation was brought to justice.
