I love not only the delicious taste of most of these flavor filled cups of goodness but the fact that the company cares about their carbon footprint on the environment makes it even better.

Sprinkles6 Candace Nelson is the founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes her great-grandmother was renowned for the distinctive desserts she made at her San Francisco restaurant during the 1930′s. She created pure, delicious, uncomplicated pastries –the result of her French culinary roots and her new American working life.

“These days, as I sift, whisk and frost at the bakery I began with my husband in Beverly Hills, I imagine our scratch-based cupcakes as a natural extension of my great grandmother’s legacy”. Candace Nelson  Sprinkles4
