Many Hollywood stars including Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Seacrest and Blake Lively indulge in the sweet confection, and you can too. On the big day – Friday, December 15 – the first 50 customers in line at each Sprinkles bakery will receive a free limited-edition Strawberry Sprinkles Cupcake. The unique treat is loaded with rainbow sprinkles and topped with a decadent cream cheese frosting.

Beyond their 24 nationwide locations, the bakery also has a traveling Sprinklesmobile — the world’s first cupcake truck — and debuted the world’s first Cupcake ATM in 2012.
