Looks like the Sprinkles truck idea is catching on (although Frostings owner Janel Mitchell told the Fast Food Maven she had this idea long before the Sprinkles truck started roaming the streets). Frostings, a new cupcakery in Lake Forest that I reviewed about a month ago, has their own version of the Sprinkles truck. But the Frostings van is way cooler-looking, it is actually a restored 1933 Helms Bakery van.
The van can hold up to 800 cupcakes and will sell Simply Vanilla, Simply Chocolate, Red Velvet, Birthday Cake, Bordeaux, and Vanilla Coconut cupcakes. The cupcakes will be sold for $3.25, the same as the store price. The pricing is better than Sprinkles cupcakes, which are sold at a premium from their Sprinkles truck.
You can find Frosting's spiffy cupcake van at the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo this weekend. Once they are ready for full-use of the van business, they will let us know by Facebook and Twitter where they will be. Come to the Orange Circle...that's where I will be waiting!
(P.S. Did I mention that I loved Frostings cupcakes?! Some of the best I've had!)
