Oscar Sunday

Sunday morning in LA and we are preparing for the Oscars!

What an exciting time to be in this town. Michael is preparing a feast and we are about to start watching in Real Time! (12 Noon here!) Last night we had a spectacular night tour of the glittering downtown. Eating at the "Market" at "The Grove" and cruising under the moonlight down Rodeo Drive and Wiltshire Blvd. It really IS "Beverlywood".

I had recently seen a show on the Food Network about "SPRINKLES"
Jane was kind enough to seek out this emporium on Santa Monica Blvd., which apparently was open until 8 p.m. Little did we know that at 7:30 p.m. we would be standing in line outside.



Even the pups have to wait outside



Some of the 'other girls' decided to stay in to consume their goodies.



When you finally get close to the door....




You can peek inside





The selection is getting lower!



Some people are inside and some are outside, which can cause some consternation



Everything is fine again when you leave with your goodies boxed and packaged up. The only thing left to do is to sing and dance your way home under the moonlight. We hope the people still in line get their choices!



4 Red Velvet, 2 Black and White, 1 Banana, 2 Strawberry, 2 Vanilla, and 1 Chocolate Raspberry. The perfect Dozen.




Who needs stars on sidewalks!



I guess we'll say the proof is in the cupcake! I barely had time to get the camera out the following day!



Apparently, Sprinkles is opening all over the place these days (NYC and DC I'm on my way!!!) ...if you ever get the opportunity, do not pass GO, .....Get Them!

The End

  2. IIRC, Sprinkles sorta led the way in stand-alone cupcake shops. Others may know more about this, but soon, Hollywood celebs were ordering from them for birthdays, showers, weddings, etc. Don't try to copy that clever little dot/circle motif on yr. cupcakes in your cupcake shop, however. They have lawyers!
