Sprinkles Cupcakes Red Velvet Cupcakes
If one flavor is synonymous with Sprinkles Cupcakes, it is Red Velvet! Our most popular cupcake was developed by Sprinkles founder Candace Nelson as an homage to her husband Charles and his deep Oklahoma roots. As a chocolate lover, Candace upped the chocolate quotient with Callebaut cocoa, mellowing the red color to a sophisticated hue. Set against the lily white of rich cream cheese frosting, the contrast is gorgeous... if only we had the self-restraint to sit and admire it!
