If there were more than a 5 I would use it. This was quite the find. We told our waiter at dinner that we were too full and he said there is a great place around the corner for a cupcake at all hours. We HAD to check it out. There was a line and it's no wonder.....a cupcake dispensing... More

My boyfriend & I bought some cupcakes inside. And later tried out the arm. It was so cool! Definitely a deadly invention for those midnight sweet cravers. The regular red velvet along with the milk chocolate were our favorites so far.

I stumbled upon this while visiting Chicago this summer and since it was my birthday, I had to check it out. The line moved quickly but was partially for the machine that functions as an ATM machine. Smart idea but I wanted to check out the store and all of the flavors. I was surprised that the store was tiny... More

These cupcakes are amazing and so pretty! Plus, you can satisfy your sweet tooth after hours with the cupcake ATM!

We decided to find this place while in Chicago after watching Cupcake Wars. The line was out the door, but part of it was for the Cupcake ATM, just outside the door. Once inside, the place was very small. I was surprised at the small selection of cupcake flavors to choose from. Maybe 8 or so. We choose the Banana... More

It's hard to score Sprinkles as average as the cupcakes are delicious; it's just that they are too rich for my taste. I was wishing for more of the cake base to go with all the buttercream. They have full size and mini cupcakes but the shop is a little too small to get a table, a coffee, and a... More

I've seen Sprinkles Cupcakes on TV from time to time and was curious to experience it myself. We used the Cupcake ATM which was really a fun novelty. I was disappointed that there were so few options in the ATM. The cupcake was very good but not unlike other popular cupcake shop.

I only went here because of their gluten free cupcake. They have one gluten free cupcake which is red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and it is very moist and yummy. The cupcakes are very good but not as good as the price is. We got a dozen cupcakes and it was about 50 dollars. I do not think... More

There was always a line out the door at Sprinkles, even right after they opened. We even indulged and had cupcakes for breakfast one day. The cupcakes are delicious. We stopped by twice during our stay in Chicago. The novelty was the cupcake ATM just outside the store so you can get your cupcake fix, even when the store is... More

The presentation had me sold. The cupcakes are show cased like jewelry. They are delicious. I had the girl give me 2 of each of what they had available. She packaged them so nice in a box then in a plastic bag to keep them fresh then in another bag. I took them on my flight from Chicago to FL... More
