Cupcakes and Ice Cream in one Glorious Stop

Sprinkles is a cheery dessert parlor that serves up delicious, over-the-top cupcakes, cookies, and ice cream. It is renowned for its Cupcake ATM, a blessed stand-alone machine that dispenses cupcakes at any hour of the day and is a truly fine example of human ingenuity at work.

The Cupcake Sundae

Sprinkles also creates amazing Cupcake Sundaes, which involve taking a cupcake, cutting it in half horizontally, and inserting a scoop of ice cream between the halves. Between the ATM and the sundae, I am forced to conclude that wizards are on-staff at Sprinkles Corporate.

Their new shop in the Domain, a small, bright, and sunny counter-service parlor, is their third location in Texas and the first in the capital city.


We went during a soft opening celebration recently and sampled more cupcakes, ice cream, and cookies I’d care to admit. I also got (and really, how could I resist?) a Cupcake Sundae - opting for a Carrot Cupcake and Rocky Road Ice Cream.

Sprinkles wanting to keep Austin sweet? Mission accomplished!

Cheerfully choosing from a cavalcade of cupcakes.

Though the Cupcake ATM’s fame has associated Sprinkles with that baked confection, and though their cupcakes were quite good, I found myself seriously impressed with their ice cream. The scoop of Rocky Road in my sundae was smooth and rich with a surprising depth of flavor and a hint of dark chocolate moodiness. Rocky Road, with its swirls of marshmallow, can sometimes be cloyingly sweet, but this scoop was admirably restrained.

The Delish Dozen

In addition to counter service and the ATM, Sprinkles also sells variety boxes of full-sized and adorably mini cupcakes, perfect for gifts or making your officemates love you. Getting more cupcakes in more people’s hands—wizardry, indeed.
