As part of Sprinkles' opening day celebrations in DTLA, they will be baking "Golden Tickets" into select cupcakes -- each found ticket is worth a $100 Sprinkles gift card. These prizes will be baked into different flavors throughout the day, so you may have to eat a lot of Red Velvet before you find one.
