Happy birthday to Sprinkles Cupcakes! This beloved cupcake Mecca is celebrating thirteen years of operation on April 13, 2018. And to celebrate — naturally!! — they’re introducing a Limited Edition Black Velvet Anniversary Cupcake!
Sprinkles invited DFB to preview these indulgent goodies (but, as always, the review is 100% ours!), and we couldn’t pass up cupcakes — especially ones as yummy-sounding as these.
Oh, yeah! Happy birthday to all of us! This cupcake is a classic-with-a-twist! It’s a Black Velvet Cupcake frosted with rich Chocolate Frosting!
It’s topped with Sprinkles’ signature simple decoration, in this case a star. It contrasts nicely with the super-dark frosting.
And to really turn this cupcake into a party, it’s filled with tiny colorful Sprinkles! And by filled, we mean filled. Like the ratio of cake:sprinkles is 2:1!
We love this whole concept — and we think kids (of all ages!) will get a kick out of those hidden sprinkles! And, well, y’all better because they are unavoidable. As soon as we cut into the cake, they spilled out. (They even started popping out when we took off some of the wrappers!)
And if you’re wondering where the Black Velvet comes in? The cake is super, duper, duper chocolate-y. We’re thinking there’s an abundance of dark chocolate cocoa in the batter (super rich and yummy!).
Lucky for Disney food fans, the Happy Birthday Cupcake will be available at Sprinkles locations at Walt Disney World and Disneyland starting on April 13! And if you’re like us and you can’t get enough cupcake pics, you can follow all the fun on social media by following #HBDSprinkles!
