                                              If I order in advance for Sprinkles LOCAL, do I have to wait in line to pick-up my cupcake order?

                                              • When you arrive at the bakery, let an associate know you are there to pick up an order.
                                              • For bakeries that offer curbside, please call the number listed on your email confirmation when you arrive.

                                                Yes, we offer a rotating monthly mini sampler. Each sampler contains three mini cupcakes that cannot be modified. Orders larger than 6 samplers must be placed at least 24 hours in advance. 

                                                  Do you sell ice cream?

                                                    Ice cream is no longer available on our menu except at our Disney Springs location. However, we do offer other delicious treats in addition to our cupcakes like freshly baked cookies, brownies, layer cakes and chocolates.  We look forward to offering more, new treats in the future - stay tuned!

                                                      What type of payment is accepted at your bakeries? 

                                                      In an effort to provide easy and contact-less experience for our guests, all our bakeries are cashless with the exception of our New York, upper east side location. Going cashless also helps provide a better and safer bakery environment for our bakery associates. We accept payments from credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay. 

                                                      CARE OF CUPCAKES

                                                      How do I care for my Sprinkles cupcakes?

                                                        It is important to keep your Sprinkles cupcakes at room temperature. Do not refrigerate them as this will dry out the cake.

                                                          How long do Sprinkles cupcakes stay fresh?

                                                            We bake fresh daily with no added preservatives, and as such our cupcakes are always best the day they are purchased.
                                                            Can I take my Sprinkles cupcakes on a Plane?

                                                            Given that we bake fresh daily without any added preservatives, we cannot ensure the same level of freshness and quality during transportation, considering factors such as cabin pressure and airplane conditions.

                                                                                                      Upon arrival, cupcakes/cookies/pupcakes/cakes should sit at room temperature until they reach an internal temperature of 70° (approximately 6-8 hours for cupcakes, cookies, and pupcakes; approximately 8-12 hours for cakes) before eating!

                                                                                                        Why is there condensation on my cupcakes?

                                                                                                              Our treats are best enjoyed day of, however you can keep your cupcakes frozen and move them to your freezer upon delivery. 

                                                                                                                Why can’t I freeze your cupcakes or cookies from the bakery if you ship your treats frozen?

                                                                                                                  Our national shipping cupcakes go through a unique commercial flash freezing process to lock in freshness. This is NOT the same as placing your cupcakes in a home freezer. Please store your cupcakes at room temperature. Do not refrigerate.
