The folks from Sprinkles just sent a box of cupcakes and a press release. The cupcakes feature a blue star on white icing (though the cake itself is the color of algae). The press release speaks of their arrangement with the Dallas Cowboys.
Apparently if you buy these Cowboys-themed cupcakes (from Sept. 12 through Sept. 19), they will donate 100 percent of the purchase price to the Salvation Army.
Good deal. But associating the Dallas Cowboys with cupcakes? Someone didn't think this one through.
