You wouldn’t think $3.50 cupcakes would catch on in a recession, but Sprinkles Cupcakes did just that. Opened in 2008 at Scottsdale and Camelback roads, the sweet shop is celebrating its fifth anniversary by giving away something fans of its cupcakes can’t even get in Arizona: Sprinkles brand ice cream.
The first 200 people to visit the shop on May 7 will get a free scoop of red velvet ice cream, a sweet cream base layered with bites of the Sprinkles’ red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting.
Sprinkles Ice Cream has locations in Los Angeles and Newport Beach, Calif., with a location slated for Dallas. It’s made with organic California dairy.
The giveaway begins at 9 a.m. at 4501 N. Scottsdale Road. For information, call (480) 970-4321 or visit Sprinkles.com.
