Beginning in late August and lasting throughout autumn, Sprinkles Cupcakes is celebrating some of the hallmarks of the season. Whether the start of the school year, football season, or the changing of the weather, the cupcake bakery has something for customers.

New flavors are a major focus of fall. The pumpkin cupcake returned to the menu on Monday, August 27. It consists of a pumpkin cake laced with ginger, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. It is then topped with a sweet cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Sprinkles will also offer a pumpkin spice latte cupcake from September 10-23 and a candy apple cupcake complete with spiced Granny Smith apples cooked in butter and brown sugar from September 24-October 7.

For students, the bakery is offering a promotion where customers can buy a cupcake and get one for free when they show a test or paper with an A letter grade. The promotion runs during Tuesdays in September. Teachers are getting a treat as well, as any teacher who shows their school I.D. on Mondays in September can enjoy a buy one, get one free cupcake offer.

Football season also brings unique offers. $5 Football Mini Samplers are now available at locations nationwide, as are Sprinkles Bake Boxes, which make perfect tailgating companions. The Sprinkles Bake Box is a conveniently-packaged assortment of four freshly-baked cupcakes, four chocolate chip cookies, four fudge brownies and two "frosting shots" in different flavors (inclusions may vary depending on location).
