Sprinkles Cupcakes Opens in Stanford Shopping Center


Sprinkles Cupcakes Palo Alto Store Front @ Stanford Shopping Center


A new Southern California favorite has opened in Palo Alto!

Sprinkles Cupcakes has a new, and already booming location in the Stanford Shopping Center between Schaub’s Meat, Fish, & Poultry and Bang & Olufsen.

Just the walk from the parking lot to the bakery will have your mouth watering, as you can smell the sweet snacks baking from far off.

Being that Sprinkles just opened there was a pretty good sized line (about 15-20min) out the door when I stopped by for my tasty treats today. The store, inside and out is very clean looking and simple. The entire front is glass paneling with a “Sprinkles” sign above the door. The inside is accommodating to all customers with a glass display of fresh and ready to eat cupcakes when you first walk in. The cupcake and beverage menu is printed in a modern text on the back wall and very easy to read.

There are over 20 cupcake flavors to choose from, each just as good as the other. I noticed some favorites among the patrons; Red Velvet,3 Cupcakes From Sprinkles Cupcakes in Palo Alto, CA Black and White, Chocolate Marshmallow and Lemon Coconut. Be sure to grab a cup of milk to wash your favortie flavor down with.

Sprinkles was founded by Candace Nelson and her husband in Beverly Hills, CA. Candace and her husband still oppertate out of that first location but have expanded to 6 other locations all over the U.S. and more to come! Sprinkles Cupcakes are always fresh and scratch-made everyday, you can’t get any better than that people!

So not only has Sprinkles brought a great new treat to the Peninsula, they make it easier than ever to enjoy these sweet snacks; you can pre-order your pick-up online with only 24hrs advance notice.

After delivering a few of these to my girlfriend at work, she says; ” you know, cupcakes are the new flowers”.

    Unfortunately, cupcakes go right to my hips, so I don’t think it would be good for this store to come to my area :-). I’m sure they do good business though. There is no better comfort food than a nice tasty cupcake with chocolate frosting.

    Hi Jillian,

    I know how you feel. My girlfriend is a bit of a foodie, and has turned me on to such things as “designer cupcakes”. Although she manages to stay slim, I’ve gained 30 pounds since we’ve been together. :)

    Sprinkles and similar cupcake stores in the area have been doing very well. Lots of people are sending them as flowers, using them as birthday cakes, and even wedding desserts.

    I heard about your shop but never get a chance to visit there. I will visit your shop soon.

    Hi iLinda!

    It’s not “our” shop. But I go there enough that I should own stock in the company.

    I am currently having a “chocolate marshmallow” craze; they are like luxurious hostess ding-dongs. :)

    We just had a birthday celebration and used cupcakes instead of the traditional birthday cake. We gave each guest a cupcake with a lit candle and asked each guest to blow them out at the same time. During this time each guest secretly made a wish for the birthday star. This created a very unique interactive birthday party for our guests. They all loved it!

    I have seen loads of useful items on your web site about computer systems.

    However, I have got the impression that laptops are
    still more or less not powerful sufficiently to be a wise decision
    if you frequently do projects that require many power, including video editing.

    But for internet surfing, microsoft word processing, and most other typical computer work they are just great, provided you don’t mind the tiny screen size. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

    Place a silpat liner on a baking sheet (or spray with nonstick
    cooking spray). Cook the chicken first in a little olive
    oil – cut the chicken into little cubes. Although the creation of flat bread with toppings resembles a green-onion pancake, it
    remains a mystery still whether the history of pizza starts
    with China.
