Sprinkles' Cupcake ATM Coming to DC?!
I never disappoint my Cupcake Lovers and after posting to Facebook on Tuesday, March 12, 2012 that ‘the word on the street was…’ DC is getting a cupcake ATM, both the Washington Business Journal and The Washington Post confirmed the scuttlebutt rumor with Sprinkles’ spokespeople. Cupcake automats are slated to be in Gallery Place, Columbia Heights and U Street to name a few. But what say you Cupcake Lovers?
Happy Poultry Day!!

Today is 'Poultry Day' and although no one recognizes these ubiquitous food holidays other than restaurants, food bloggers and foodies, I must thank the person who decided to top a cupcake with a chicken wing! What else would I have shown you all to celebrate? Ordinarily I would chock this off as a blatant case of cupcake abuse but c'mon, lighten up and eat the cake Anna Mae...it's poultry day!!

New Additions to the Cupcake Vodka Family
Cupcake Vodka introduces two new flavors to their roster: Ginger Snap and Very Berry. Ginger snap is to have hints of cinnamon and clove while Very Berry denotes hints of raspberry and blueberry but both are described as clean, indulgent and velvety smooth. These flavors will be in addition to the existing four flavors: frosting, devil’s food, chiffon and original. I'm still getting word on which bars carry these flavors however, you can find the vodkas at your local liquor store.
