Hello Sprinkles Cupcakes Manhattan Beach!

Hello Sprinkles Cupcakes Manhattan Beach!

Oh sweet day! I’m excited to say Sprinkles Cupcakes now has a full fledged shop in the South Bay! Their newest location is at Manhattan Village in Manhattan Beach, California.

It’s not necessarily Sprinkles Cupcakes first stop in the South Bay as they do have a vending atm at the Del Amo Fashion Center. I had blogged about the atm back in September 2021 and now a year later; here they are with a full on shop. It is so exciting!

This new shop has all of the Sprinkles favorites including red velvet and strawberry. Since Halloween is just around the corner; they also had some special offerings. Their Halloween offerings included a Pumpkin cupcake, a Reese’s Pieces and a Bewitched Red Velvet.

I chose to get the Pumpkin and Bewitched and was definitely impressed. I’m a big pumpkin fan and their cupcake had the right hint of pumpkin. I also am a big red velvet fan and so really enjoyed the Bewitched. Can I say I am “bewitched” over this cupcake. It was perfectly charming and cute with its Halloween colored sprinkles (including a scary cute eyeball hehe).

Sprinkles Cupcakes is a nice addition to Manhattan Village. This shop will also be adding an cupcake atm outside and am definitely going to check that out when it opens up (hmm can we say future Hello Kitty Foodie Blog Post ;)). Yay for Sprinkles Cupcakes in the South Bay! So sweet for sure!

“I love Sprinkles…Yes I do! Yes I do!!”

I am so excited for latest addition to the Del Amo Fashion Center. Sprinkles Cupcakes! The popular Beverly Hills cupcakes that started the cupcake haute craze is now in the South Bay via a cupcake ATM.

The very first Sprinkles ATM was introduced in 2012 and located next to a Sprinkles Bakery. It was in 2016 at the University of Southern California campus that the first standalone ATM was introduced. Since then there have been several ATM locations around So-Cal. The latest is now at Del Amo Fashion Center.

Each cupcake is baked fresh daily and placed in an individual box which is placed inside the ATM. The ATM can hold up to 600 cupcakes.

Cupcakes are $5.50 each and the current flavors available at Del Amo Fashion Center include Black and White, Dark Chocolate, Red Velvet, Sprinkles, Strawberry and Vanilla. You can also get a 4 pack variety for $22. Cupcakes are baked fresh and replenished daily.

Once one purchases a cupcake; the happy Sprinkles song plays! It’sn catchy and you soon will find yourself singing along! Soon enough your cupcake of choice will be dispensed! Happy songs and sweet cupcakes! Win win!

The newest Sprinkles ATM machine is located at Del Amo Fashion Center’s food court right by Blaze Pizza. I love Sprinkles! Yes; I do! Yes; I do!!

Hello Georgetown Cupcake!

Hello Georgetown Cupcake!

Good Ol’ Georgetown! There are so many visits to visit in this historic town. Among the many sights to see are the Old Stone House, Kennedy Homes, Tudor Place, Historic Churches and Georgetown University. No trip to Georgetown however would be complete without a visit to Georgetown Cupcakes.

The famous cupcake shop opened in Georgetown in 2008. Since then founders and sisters Katherine Kallinis Berman and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne  have expanded their cupcake empire to include locations in Bethesda, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Georgetown Cupcakes was also the star of the reality show enter of a reality  “DC Cupcakes” that ran on TLC from 2010 to 2013.

Soon after touring the historic sights of Georgetown, I went to M street where Georgetown Cupcake is located. Spotting the bright pink signs, I happily made my way into the cute cupcake shop.  There was an abundant of delicious cupcake offerings that day. Their most popular, the red velvet cupcake, was of course offered. They also had some delicious offerings such as double milk chocolate birthday cupcakes, raspberry lemonade cupcake, lemon blossom cupcakes and coffee cookies and creme cupcakes.

After having quite a time deciding what to get, I chose to get their green tea butterfly cupcake and their raspberry swirl cheesecake cupcake.

The green tea butterfly cupcake is absolutely beautiful. It’s the perfect cupcake for springtime. It’s a green tea and citrus-infused cupcake with green tea-infused buttercream frosting. It is topped off with candy and yogurt-covered pretzel butterfly. I really liked the touch of the yogurt covered pretzels. The sweet crunchy pretzel went well with the green tea infused buttercream frosting.

My favorite however had to be the raspberry swirl cheesecake cupcake however. It is a raspberry swirl cheesecake baked with fresh raspberries and a graham cracker crust, topped with a Madagascar vanilla buttercream frosting and a pink fondant flower. This cupcake looks simple yet it is packed with delicious flavor. It was truly love at first bite when I bit into the crispy graham cracker crust at the bottom. The cheesecake itself was delightfully creamy and light. This truly was one of the best cupcakes ever.

In a town where there’s so many wonderful sights to visit, Georgetown Cupcake is a breath of fresh air. It’s a sweet place with sweet treats for locals and tourists. Their cupcakes are sure to bring a smile to anyone visiting Georgetown.

“Life is as sweet as a cupcake.”

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, SusieCakes Bakery is my favorite cupcake bakery.

I am SusieCakes Bakery girl. Through the years, I’ve tried the various cupcake flavors that SusieCakes Bakery has to offer. In my last blog post, I mentioned how I’ve also had some of their speciality cupcakes celebrating special occasions. From Prince William and Kate’s wedding to the Olympics, I’ve loved all of the creative cupcakes that SusieCakes Bakery has offered.

This past Friday, something special occured. LA Kings scored in an exciting Game 5 double overtime and defeated the New York Rangers, 3-2 to win their second Stanley Cup in three years. I’m a big hockey fan and it’s no secret that I’m a big cupcake fan and so I was thrilled to see that SusieCakes had something special to celebrate this victory.

SusieCakes celebrated this win with a chocolate cupcake topped with a vanilla pastel frosting with a lovely “Kings Win!”.

It was a definitely a cupcake fit for the occasion. Kings win and Susiecakes Bakery wins too with this cupcake! Deliciously divine, scrumptiously sweet this cupcake was perfect for such a divine and sweet win of the Stanley Cup.

I love how Susiecakes Bakery has cupcakes to celebrate each of life’s sweet moments! Thank you to Susiecakes Bakery for making special moments even more special through cupcakes. Not only am I a happy hockey fan, I’m also a happy cupcake fan with their latest speciality cupcake! Life is indeed sweet. 🙂
