Did you know that there is not only a National Cupcake Day but a national day for specific cupcake flavors? It's probably a good thing, too, because here in Los Angeles many people need to give themselves reasons to indulge and partake in something sweet. What does this have to do with television, you might wonder? Well, no one understands the timeless love (it's not just a recent food trend!) for cupcakes like the fine folks at Warner Bros. and 2 Broke Girls so to celebrate National Vanilla Cupcake Day they have teamed up with LA's own Sprinkles Cupcakes to provide a very special flavor-- and some free treats for a few lucky fans.
Sprinkles has created a "2 Broke Not So Vanilla" cupcake to celebrate the sassiness of Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) on their hit sitcom. This limited time only cupcake features a graham cracker bottom and vanilla cake with chocolate chips, topped with dark chocolate frosting and a dash of fleur de sel and will be available at ALL Sprinkles locations nationwide from November 1–15.
“2 Broke Girls is like a delicious sweet dessert on CBS Monday nights, so we liked the idea of putting a Broke twist on National Vanilla Cupcake Day,” Lisa Gregorian, Chief Marketing Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group, said in a statement to the press.
“The entrepreneurial spirit of Sprinkles’ founder, Candace Nelson, is mirrored by Kat and Beth’s characters on 2 Broke Girls, making this a fun promotion for fans of the show and cupcakes alike.”
In addition to trying the special flavor, there will be 100 golden tickets for a complimentary "2 Broke Not So Vanilla" cupcake hidden inside cupcake boxes for patrons who use the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM on National Vanilla Cupcake Day — Sunday, November 10 — so ATM cupcake customers could receive one along with their purchase! The Sprinkles ATM can be found at the Beverly Hills Sprinkles location (9635 South Santa Monica Boulevard, between Bedford & Camden), the Chicago Sprinkles location (50 East Walton Street, between Michigan & Rush) and the Dallas Sprinkles location (4020 Villanova Drive, between Northwest Highway & Preston Road), with the golden ticket hidden in 100 cupcake boxes at each location.
Honestly, we're not sure what took Sprinkles (or any cupcake bakery, for that matter!) so long to notice 2 Broke Girls' national awareness of cupcakes as the perfect after-any-meal dessert. But based on the flavor profile, we are sure this one was worth the wait!
2 Broke Girls airs on CBS on Monday nights at 8:30 p.m.
