Bleh cupcakes.. This poor excuse for a bakery doles out overpriced, overly sweet glops of yuck. A whole lot of hype and not a whole lot of anything else. Very average, nothing special. The cupcakes tasted very oily, and I was very disappointed because I could only stomach one bite. The frosting was hard like it had been sitting all day, and it reminded me of a bad doughnut, the way bits of hard sugar were flaking off. Crumb is so much better, at least there you can get minis and streusel toppings and meringue, which in my opinion is a lot more inventive. The Beverly Hills store is tiny, which makes it even less inviting. Not worth the wait, or the price. Just average.
Darren Chaker Luvs His Cupcake!. I've been to Beverly Hills, and Scottsdale, but seem partial to the cupcakes in Beverly Hills, however Scottsdale never has a line. Darren Chaker
Not Worth the Hype. I gotta say, these cupcakes are not special! at $3 and up, they are ALL about the hype. They're good, sure, but so are the red velvet cupcakes from Ralph's. Not worth a long line or the expensive price.
Perfection from the Original Cupcakery. Although the cupcake isn’t exactly a new invention, Sprinkles is really who we should be thanking for the cupcake craze. In 2005 the first Sprinkles opened in Beverly Hills and since then the Sprinkles brand has become a worldwide obsession. They bake up mostly traditional flavors and keep decorations to a minimum. At Sprinkles, the cupcakes speak for themselves--they don't need crazy toppings or other gimmicks to sell. Some of the flashier cupcakeries might lure you away temporarily, but in the end, you'll always find your way back to the "original cupcake bakery." Their "best" flavors really come down to personal preference, so it's hard to suggest a certain flavor here. If they have any seasonal or holiday flavors when you go, I'd recommend getting those since they're only for a limited time. Also, make sure to follow them on Twitter and/or Facebook because they give out "secret words of the day" that can score you a free cupcake if you're one of the first people to whisper it to them.
Don't be fooled. This place is terrible. Don't listen to any good reviews. I went to the one in Newport Beach,yesterday, and bought 2 cupcakes. There's too much frosting and it didn't taste like a butter frosting. The cupcake was stale and when I got home the "cake" part just fell apart into crumbles. You needed a spoon to eat it. I mean, for those prices, if the cupcakes aren't fresh, throw them out and make new ones. There's a much better cupcake place in Manhattan Beach on Manhattan Ave. I would never go back
What an overrated place.
The cupcakes are really not worth the long line. Maybe if you had just gotten your prescription from the medical MJ clinic at Venice Beach, yes the cupcakes would taste great, but so would a cupcake from Sara Lee. There is way too much sweetener and I doubt that the cupcakes are low calorie. A supermodel could live off one cupcake for a week and still feel fat.
Yes, I was foolish enough to stand in line for almost an hour to get 6 cupcakes for $20. It was a case of morbid curiosity... so I can say "Been there, done that.... got the bigger posterior to prove it."
Gone Way Downhill. These use to be great, but the most recent one I had tasted stale and dry.
A little too sweet but I like it.
Love the taste but a little too sweet. Price is ok for the quality cake they make and the name. it is good for special day but cann't eat it everyday. It is good over all.
Lovely if you enjoy caulking paste and day old bread..
These cupcakes are over-priced and over-hyped.
I love you, Oprah, but these are just not very good. The cake itself is pretty dense and flavorless, and the icing is just disgusting. Even at a lower price point, this is one dessert that is certainly not worth lining up for 30 minutes. Sorry!
Honest Review. My daughter drives from Covina to Beveryly Hills for their cupcakes, so I happened to be out there an thought why not?? I ordered black/white(good), red velvet and lemon(not very lemony). I wish I went when they baked Pumpkin! My favorite was the 'Red Velvet' the frosting is just a little too sweet, lighten up on the sugar and I think you will do even better.
