Dylan's Cupcake Wars

It is no secret that Dylan loves watching the Food Network with me. Cupcake Wars is one of his favorite shows and he is always getting new ideas for us to make cupcakes with from this show. As you may know, one of the judges on Cupcake Wars is Candace Nelson, the founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes. When I told Dylan that there was a Sprinkles cupcake bakery just 5 minutes from us he got very excited!

After much discussion about local and not so local cupcake bakeries, Dylan decided that he wanted to taste all of these "famous" cupcakes and judge them for himself. So today our first stop was Sprinkles Cupcakes in Newport Beach. We purchased two cupcakes. Chocolate Marshmallow and Vanilla were his choices.

Personally, I do not care much for Sprinkles Cupcakes. The Chocolate Marshmallow basically tasted like a Ding Dong and the Vanilla cupcake was very dry, but my opinion doesn't really matter ... watch the video and see what the cupcake expert had to say.

Our next stop will be Wonderland Bakery ...
