CUP CAKE!! Yes yes, I know it's one word; Cupcake! However, the whole anticipation of the Sprinkles ATM experience had me saying CUP-CAKE, CUP-CAKE, CUP-CAKE, LOL. Remember that little booklet I told you about and had a picture of in my Post last week? Well, number one on that list was to go to the SPRINKLES ATM machine! I know I know, probably most of you have heard about them but I did not know about it till I saw a cupcake ATM on a blogger's post a few months ago and I was so excited when I saw they had one in Vegas.
On the first day of exploring the sin city, my husband and I were on a hunt for the Sprinkles Bakery. At first, I thought we were not going to find it, but if you're looking for it, it's on the brick road towards the big Ferris wheel down by the Cromwell Hotel, quite a quaint little stretch. And guess what? For those of you who love IN and OUT Burger, there's one right beside of it!
I got super lucky in that respect but there was no line at the machine. Mr. Nine got the camera on the iPhone ready & I thought he was going to only take one picture but he got the sequence of my excitement and anticipation of my red velvet delight! You knew it was gonna be red velvet, that is my all-time favorite cupcake in the whole wide world. I make a mean Red Velvet cake that we often have a Christmas but it was my mom who is the Queen of all the Red Velvet cupcakes! Her mini ones are pop in your mouth out of this world good and moist. So this cupcake had a lot to live up to. At $4.50, I thought to myself, it better be mind altering. And little boy kinda half way thinking about it but still unsure; I'm sorry if this middle-aged "in need of a sugar fix" woman scared you off...
Here we go.....
Mr. Nine and I walked over to a table and opened the sturdy square box. There it was. I was ready. I didn't even care if I got red velvet on my white pants. I pulled the paper back and dove it. Verdict: Good but not that Good!! Not near my mom's caliber. It just wasn't "that" fresh.
We think there's a dude in a Sprinkles hat who hears a bell when you make a "Cupcake Withdrawal" and pops one of the pre-made cupcakes stacked in boxes behind the door and Bam...... there it is.
The CUPCAKE itself: 3 out of 5 stars
THE SPRINKLES ATM experience: 5 out of 5 stars baby!!
And now, The outfit deets. I am so in love with this top from Nordstrom. In fact, I saw sweet Sheaffer showcased it on her blog on Friday, so I knew I had a goodie. It also comes in blush, black, navy arrow and a beautiful Kelly green that I may have to get as well. It's flowy and comfy and really knocks it out of the park with white jeans, cute accessories and sandals.
Oh, RUB the Buddha's Belly in the back Lobby of the Aria for Good Luck. Oh I rubbed~

The color of the top is Called "Saucy Red" so go make it a Saucy Monday dear friends of mine!!
