Sprinkles rolls out 2 new cupcakes for March

You get an abundance of options at Sprinkles this week — more so than even on a usual week. The gourmet cupcakery is revealing two new flavors. The first, available only tomorrow, is a green velvet cupcake, for helping you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a little flamboyance. Of course, red velvet cake is merely chocolate cake with tons of food coloring; I’m assuming the same is true for green velvet, although the color takes, uhh, an adjustment.It’s really green.  Really. But tastes just as good as what you’ve come to expect from Sprinkles.

Then later in the month, you can go back to red velvet with a little Red Cross topper thrown in. From March 27 through April 1, 100 percent of the proceeds from this version of the classic go to the American Red Cross.

We here at Dallas Voice love getting goodies, and today we got some especially good goodies.

The folks at Citizen Sweet, a new company that specializes in delivering cupcakes, muffins and cookies, delivered a box containing a mouth-watering assortment of cupcakes, and let me tell you, they didn’t last long! We had dark chocolate, creamy dreamy vanilla, pumpkin chocolate chip, chocolate velvet and carrot cake. I had one of the carrot cake cupcakes, with that oh-so-yummy cream cheese icing, and it was DE-LISH-US!
