    Hi Megan,

    I agree that Sprinkles’ cupcakes and the Red Velvet cake at Dough Boys are fiercely delicious. I actuallly only recently tried the Red Velvet cake at Dough Boys thinking before then that nothing could stack up to Sprinkles’ red velvet cupcake, but Sprinkles was chellenged! The Dough Boys cake comes darn close if not equal! Ahh, it’s the simple pleasures in life that make it great….
