The Orange County Register announced its list of the
Best Cupcakes of Orange County 2008.
The honors go to:
Sprinkles in the Corona Del Mar Shopping Center.
Sprinkles is in a class by itself. They only use natural ingredients. The cupcakes are preservative free, which means you gotta eat them the same day or they taste really dry. The cupcakes are moist and the frosting is so popular, Sprinkles even sells frosting shots at $.75 each for that extra sugar rush.
Sprinkles is a forerunner in the crowded field of cupcakes. Fans stand in line for the favorite red velvet, and black and white, vanilla milk chocolate flavored cupcakes.
Wonderland Bakery Wonderland carved a niche in the cupcake field with its designer cupcakes. Wonderland's signature Ruby Red Slipper cupcake features red velvet cake with a buttercrean frosting topped with a Red Slipper cookie. The Strawberry Fields is, whatelse, strawberry cake with buttercream frosting crowned with a white chocolate dipped strawberry.
