Hispanic Heritage Month is a time dedicated to recognizing and highlighting all the incredible achievements within the Hispanic community ― and Sprinkles is celebrating in a sweet way. The L.A. bakery is once again joining forces with Claudette Zepeda to bring back the delectable cupcake that honors the chef’s Hispanic roots.
“Sprinkles is excited to partner with Claudette Zepeda, San Diego-based chef, and culinary entrepreneur, to present La Gloria, the next cupcake in our Female Chef Series,” shared the bakery.
Chef Zepeda’s delectable La Gloria cupcake is full of flavors originating from Northern Mexico and features a caramel-flavored cake adorned in pecans, a dulce de leche center, and savory yet sweet caramel frosting — all topped with rich cinnamon sugar. Even the story behind the treat is just as sweet! La Gloria is inspired by the caramel candy Zepeda would often find in her grandmother’s purse and is perfectly crafted with that loving nostalgia in mind.
Of course, the celebration doesn’t stop there! Sprinkles is also donating to the Hispanic Heritage Foundation to further the empowerment of Hispanic culture.
You can get your hands on this special dessert starting September 4 through October 1, 2023, at all Sprinkles’ Bakeries and ATMs around Los Angeles and across the nation. Find your Sprinkle’s location here!
