Sprinkles Cupcakes in Newport Beach is one of OC’s pioneer cupcakeries. Their yummy morsels are baked fresh all day and hand-crafted from such fine ingredients as sweet cream butter, pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and bittersweet Belgian chocolate. But how will you be able to tell these masterpieces apart from those other nasty cupcakes? Just follow the dots . . . Sprinkles places a trademarked candy dot atop each of its little delicacies. They change their menu with every season, and sometimes with every month, just to stay ahead of the competition, and the subsequent lines and mega-orders for banquets and fundraisers are testaments to their talents. They are also famous for sending reporters cupcakes with every new season, just to remind them of how awesome they are—seriously! Newspapers have been known to get cupcakes for years without writing about them, but while gorging them up within minutes of their arrival at offices.
