Disney Springs just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter, and with the opening of Sprinkles Cupcakes last spring this Disney hot spot can’t be beat.  If you haven’t heard of Sprinkles cupcakes you may just be living under a rock.  Sprinkles is home to the world’s first cupcake ATM and has grown to 20 store’s worldwide.  AND is….disney-2x

Sprinkles Cupcakes serves only the finest ingredients; meaning no artificial flavors or preservatives are used.   Your taste buds are guaranteed freshness and extra sweet baked into every cupcake.  Between the ATM and the store they bake and frost nearly 2,000 cupcakes a day!  dscn0076

With this much natural sugar shock going on I had to give in to my craving.  I met up with Jodi, the General Manager at Sprinkles at Disney Springs to get the inside scoop and learn some super cool facts about CUPCAKES!

Jodi has worked at the Sprinkles in LA, Beverly Hills, and Las Vegas  before coming to Florida.  She has been with the Disney Springs bakery since it opened May 2016.  So of course she has seen and experienced a lot in the cupcake world.  When asked what makes Sprinkldscn9934es so different from other bakeries, she replied, “Sprinkles is like a ride. Because you come in and see the cupcakes being made and be a part of the process itself.”  Guests can view cupcakes being frosted through out the day up until closing.  Using a unique frosting technique called the Sprinkles swirl, cupcakes are frosted  all around and finished with a final swirl.   dscn9970

Almost everything is made in-house. For example, the cream cheese whipped cream featured in the Red Velvet Mocha is made in several batches throughout the day.  **Fun Fact** Red velvet is their most popular and signature flavor.  And did you know you can say anything with cupcakes?  Have any message or hashtag spelled out on cupcakes!

“We’ve had message boxes that ask “Will you marry me?  My favorite messages are those for weddings or ones with bridal shower hashtags.” (Jodi, 2017)  Sharing happy messages with special humans is just too sweet with Sprinkles Cupcakes. This is by far the most joyful cupcake I have ever seen.   They are also the best cupcake I have ever tasted.  Sprinkle’s cupcakes are so moist that they melt in your mouth and they go great with a sweet cup of coffee.  My favorite combination is a Red Velvet Cupcake and the Red Velvet Mocha.  Other specialty drinks are available.

While there is only one Cupcake ATM currently at Disney Springs, Jodi hinted towards the franchise’s expansion and their hopes to add a second soon.

My visit to Sprinkles is just a few months shy of their one year anniversary.  I can’t wait to find out how they will celebrate!  Til then join the Sprinkles Perks program to earn free cupcakes!!!  Thank you, Jodi for the opportunity to experience Sprinkles and the world’s greatest cupcake with my family!

Cold Disney Day in FLORIDA

What do you do when the kid races get cancelled due to a Florida winter storm?  Why, go to Magic Kingdom of course!  Thunder Mountain was still rolling so we did too.  I excitedly proclaim that we survived the cold in the most magical place on earth.  Much like Queen Elsa,  the cold never bothered me anyway!!!  With a few warm hugs and some pixie dust we were melting down Main Street USA.  I in my adorable Dole Whip hat by Talula Crafts and my kiddos bundled up for the bitter cold we were off for a fantastical adventure, but only after capturing some fun memories in front of Cinderella’s Castle.

Needless to say we were whipping it through Magic Kingdom on one of the coldest winter days in Florida for 2017.  As the day went on it got colder and the magic got warmer.   This is the best time to play in the parks.  There is an extreme decline in visitors; no hustle and bustle like the holiday’s, which means you almost walk right on to the attractions of your choice.  This is truly the best time of year to  visit Walt Disney World.  Now lets get back to my adorable knit Dole Whip beanie that kept my pretty little noggin nice and toasty in the freezing 38 degree Florida Sunshine.  You can find the delectable knit hat on Etsy from Talula Crafts.  Topped with a cherry Talula’s handcrafted knit hat is every Dole Whip Lover’s Dream.  You may also enjoy hand knitted blankets, scarves, gloves, and crochet dolls handcrafted by Jennie Kay from the heart of Westminster, Colorado the owner of Talula Crafts.  This has got to be the sweetest hat yet the coolest hat I have ever worn in winter and it sure does get a lot of attention.

The Citizens of Main Street stopped me in the center of a large crowd to ask me about my Dole Whip Hat and the Dapper Dan’s played me a special tune.  These guys are amazing and like my friend the Yellow Dapper Dan exclaimed…”It is never too cold for a Dole Whip!  Just take it in and eat it!”  Cheers to you and all my Dole Whip fans.  Disney Bounding in the cold is my new favorite thing to do.  Stay warm Florida friends.  We have 4 more cold days ahead of us.  Brrrr….these Florida winters are turning me into my favorite snowlove OLAF!  Guess I’ll just have to “LET IT GO!”
