The cupcakes are dense, moist and chewy. They have a sweet flavor. Almost vanilla. They do taste a little like a big sprinkle. Ya know, that sugary, almost vanilla flavor.

The frosting is smooth and creamy. A typical vanilla buttercream. A very sweet, typical vanilla buttercream. Almost like eating ice cream.
