Sprinkles Cupcakery, California.

The first cupcake bakery (cupcakery) in the U.S. is called Sprinkles cupcake and we got to visit it on vacation in California. The cupcakes were simple but beautiful. I had a raspberry cupcake and we got a couple others to try too. We got two raspberry, one chocolate marshmallow, two peanut butter with chocolate, and one red velvet.
