Sprinkles....Is That You?

My brother and sister-in-law had given me a Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcake mix not too long ago, and I decided that my Friday night Scrapbooking Crop would be the perfect occasion to use the mix. Our group leader, Clare, absolutely loves Red Velvet.

Here is the end result:

I even tried to replicate the signature Sprinkles cupcakes frosting style...I think I better stick to my favorite open star icing tip. :) The kit also included Sprinkles signature fondant dots to decorate the cupcakes with.

I also used the Sprinkles Cream Cheese Frosting recipe listed on the can. I thought it was pretty good. Very easy to work with. But I still prefer my go to recipe in Crazy About Cupcakes by Krystina Castella.

In the end, these turned out to be a beautiful red color, and I enjoyed presenting them to my Scrapbooking girls!

Hi Fancy Lady! I have had Sprinkles cupcakes a few times. I really like their banana cupcakes. The mix is very similar to the ones from their shop. If you have the recipe for their banana cake I would love to have it, thanks!
