Sprinkles Cupcakes to Close at Linq Promenade

The flagship location of Sprinkles Cupcakes is set to close at Linq promenade on July 5, 2019.

Sprinkles has been a fixture at the Linq shopping district since it opened in 2014. To its credit, Sprinkles lasted longer than many of the mall’s original tenants.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because frosting.

According to a notice posted at Sprinkles, the store will expand to “two new locations on The Strip this fall.”

Always look on the bright side of life. Thanks to James T. for the pic.

Sprinkles made headlines for its cupcake ATM. The Sprinkles cupcake ATM was touted as the world’s first.

Cupcakes, direct to your face.

Sprinkles opened its original location in Beverly Hills in 2005. The company has more than 30 locations across the country.

The company was founded by Candace Nelson, who we took a photo of in 2014, because we’ve taken a photo of virtually everything.

We’re a big fan of scoop.

Yes, they served ice cream, too. And cookies. But it was really about the cupcakes.

While we didn’t visit Sprinkles too often, we’re a little sad to see it go. Because whenever a cupcake store closes, an angel loses its moobs. Or something.

Speaking of moobs.

Oh, sure. Now, you’re drooling. If you’d visited more, there would still be a Sprinkles at Linq!

It seems the Linq promenade has already found a replacement for Sprinkles, Icebar. Icebar opens in November 2019. Visit the official site.


It’s hard to be broken up about liquor replacing baked goods, sorry.

Sprinkles is being tight-lipped about the two new Vegas locations, but we trust we’ll see the return of these master bakers soon.

Oh, like we were going to get through an entire story without a single “master baker” reference. Do you know this blog at all?

Update (7/7/19): Word on the street is Sprinkles has struck deals with MGM Resorts, and the most likely candidates for future Sprinkles locations are Aria and MGM Grand (Park MGM is also a contender). For the record, Sprinkles has officially said “no comment.” Cupcake scoop for the win.

    Good cupcake are hard to find. I bought a box of cupcakes at Wal Mart and after eating one threw the rest out. I thought I saw Sprinkles cupcakes at Smith’s.don’t think they sell to grocery stores so was probably mistaken

    Scott Roeben cracks me up. I especially like it when he makes an UN PC comment, WHILE being funny.
    Unfortunately, we live in a world today where SOMEBODY is OFFENDED by SOMETHING.
    ie: a Washed up NFL Player makes a major sports shoe maker cancel a shoe model because he is ANTI AMERICAN. And, the shoe company CAVES to the demand of a small few people. Every day some new supposed comment get someone FIRED even after working for 20-30 years for a company over an UN PC comment.
    Keep up the good work, Scott!!

    Personally, I am not a cupcake, donut, or any pasty lover. Nor candy.
    But, I liked SPRINKLES ATM and their colorful donuts. If I was a donut fan, not sure I would spend nearly $5.00 for ONE donut. But, the had maybe THE prominent location at the LINQ outdoor mall and couldn’t make a go of it. Possibly the sky high RENT? Next door IN n OUT is busy from open till close, with slightly higher prices than their OFF STRIP locations. I would guess that either SPINKLES high prices OR high rent drove them away.

    I guess I can be the jerk here. These cupcakes were not that great. I haven’t even seen lines like when they first opened, I am not surprised.
