My First Sprinkles Experience…

I went over to the Sprinkles in Newport Beach as I was craving something sweet today. I have had their cupcakes before from a friends house but never went to the store myself for the whole experience, and I wanted to see what the whole hype is about.

The store was small and it was packed inside.  There were seats outside where people enjoyed the cupcakes with coffee.

Then I bought two all time favorite flavors, the Red Velvet and the dark chocolate cupcakes and took it home.

The cupcakes cost $3.50 each. I would say its a bit on the pricey side, but honestly I have not had a better cupcake elsewhere with this kind of cute packaging and frosting. Its not just the taste, but the whole experience, it just felt more special. I would go back for their cupcakes. It was definitely moist and soft, and the cake wasn’t too sweet, but the frosting for the chocolate cupcake was a bit too much for me, although there was a nice rich chocolate taste in the frosting. I think I liked the red velvet better. Maybe I will make the red velvet next time with their cupcake mix, its $14 and you can make  a dozen of them.


Breads from 85C

Taro Danish Bread

This is one of my favorites, light, flaky, and taroish!


Squid Ink Garlic Bread

This bread sounds weird but it doesn’t taste bad at all! The bread has a nice soft chewy texture, with a very small slice of cheese in the middle, and garlic taste on the top. Love it!


Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread

Another one of my favorites, the blueberry cream cheese taste like blueberry yogurt! I love it!



Here is one of the hottest place to go for tea/breads/cakes right now in Irvine. The line is insanely long during the weekends, and even during the weekdays the lines are out the door ( just a bit less) Its definitely my favorite bakeries to go since they have a good variety of stuff that you normally don’t see in other bakeries (like calamari bread!).  Everything I have had so far is pretty good, so I am determined to try something new every week!
