Instead of swinging by the usual doughnut or bagel shop on your way to work tomorrow, think about delighting your co-workers with cupcakes–for a good cause. Wednesday, Dec. 1, Scottsdale’s Sprinkles Cupcakes is honoring World AIDS Day with its Red Ribbon cupcake. Sprinkles is donating proceeds from its Red Ribbon cupcake to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. (The well-respected organization is a global leader in the fight against pediatric HIV and AIDS. It operates in 17 countries around the world and provides HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for women, children, and families. www.pedaids.org.)
From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, World AIDS Day, Sprinkles patrons can pick up the red velvet cupcake (Sprinkles’ most popular flavor), which is topped with white frosting and a red sugar ribbon–a reminder of the ever-important day. 480.970.4321, www.sprinkles.com.
