Two things happening in cupcake world today: First, were told that Beverly Hillsbased Sprinkles will open in the former Gino space in January of next year. A press release says the shop will incorporate Sprinkles modern design elements while maintaining an historic Manhattan feel. Its uncertain whether maintaining an historic Manhattan feel means theyre keeping the wallpaper. And second: It looks like Crumbs is hot on the high heels of Magnolias Carrie Cupcake the store tells us it has introduced a $22.75 Girls Night Out Pack of cupcakes inspired by Sex and the City 2.

Yes, theres a cosmo-flavored cupcake (vanilla cake tinted pink filled with strawberry buttercream frosting and topped with lime cream cheese frosting edged in pink sugar), as well as an Oh La La flavor. Wed ask what that is, but were too busy hitting ourselves over the head with a bottle of Bret Michaels Diet Snapple.
