Was feeling a bit domesticated tonight so after making a shrimp with garlic and white wine pasta by Emeril Lagasse for my hubby (which turned out so delish and it was pretty easy!), I decided to bake. And while I love all foods, my sweet tooth is the queen of my mouth domain so I get pretty excited when it’s dessert time. And what better dessert than a cupcake?! In the modern war of gourmet cupcakes, my loyalty still stands with Sprinkles. They were one of the early pioneers (deservingly the self-proclaimed “original cupcake bakery”), their branding is classy and whimsical, their storefronts are adorable and most importantly, their cupcakes are amazing. And lucky for me, I had bought a can of the Sprinkles spiced pumpkin cupcake mix from Williams Sonoma a while ago so we were going to end this hump day with a bang…and a cupcake. And how cool that you can buy the mix and [very easily] bake them yourself and look like a total rock star baker?! Check out how they turned out! YUM.
