I ate a vegan cupcake.
And it was good.
(better than good, actually. It was absolutely brilliant.)
So I made the momentous decision to pull him out of school for the last 45 minutes of the day. Having been raised by an educator, it was drilled into my head at an early age that YOU NEVER MISS SCHOOL. EVER. Particularly for a "cupcake party." I couldn't figure out if I was the best mom in the world or the worst, but I did not go into details when I told the front office what time I'd be picking him up. Yes, we have a dental appointment...::avoids eye contact, tires squeal out of parking lot::
Okay, back to these little treats. Located in the newly opened Linq off of Las Vegas Blvd, the store is directly next to Brooklyn Bowl. The giant ferris wheel is in the back and with restaurants lining the cobblestone street, the whole area feels really quaint. Not your idea of "the Strip," for sure. I definitely see more trips to the Linq in our future.
At the event, we were allowed to pick two cupcakes and one ice cream. THERE'S ICE CREAM? Of course, my tummy immediately seized up, thinking of that cold dairy, but then Stesha came running out shouting something about "blood orange sorbet!" WHAT?
And with that, all of my bases were covered.
I was shocked when they said they offered vegan cupcakes. I was even more blown away when I tasted the little concoction. It was amazing, in short. They also offer gluten-free, sugar-free, AND doggie cupcakes (just in case your pooch gets a craving). While the store front is small, there's the option of cupcake delivery OR cupcake pick-up as well.
And if that isn't enough, try the cupcake ATM.
(Check out the complete list of flavors here. You'll need to study it before your visit, trust me.)
Oh, and remember her plus-one, the little guy that doesn't eat solids yet? He got a tiny taste of chocolate goodness...and a new Sprinkles customer was born. Enjoy it, Ben!
