So, doesn’t everyone have a cupcake story? I was working on site at my client Google, in Chicago. I was taking a snack break, and walked to one of their micro kitchens (filled with snacks like nuts, hard boiled eggs, drinks, chips, etc.). There was a box, open, with two dozen cupcakes. But what caught my eye was the dot on the top. A perfect circle sitting on top of another perfect circle, the smoothly swirled iced cap of the cupcake. Each colorful candy pin had a different design on top. I was astonished at these cupcakes, I had never seen a cupcake like this before. They were lined up, in rows, and it really appealed to my design aesthetic. I was offered one, and I obliged, of course.
It was THE MOST heavenly cupcake I had ever had in my life, it was soft, moist and super sweet. and I am not just saying that because today on my show,
I have Candace Nelson, the founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes. And she takes us on a journey from her layered life as a child that started in Indonesia which led her to her most incredible college experience and then her job as an investment banker turned the Ray Croc of Cupcakes.
