Clash of the Cupcake Chains: Sprinkles v. Gigi's Cupcakes

Remember the 2000s, when cupcakes were just another bakery treat to enjoy on special occasions like birthdays and holidays? Yeah, so do we. But since those long gone days the little, frosted cakes have become America's sweetheart of sweet treats. They're everywhere we look it seems and have spawned a booming industry all their own of dedicated bakeries, television shows and mountains of cupcake-themed merchandise.
