Let them eat (cup)cake!

There’s a food holiday for everything these days: National Hot Pastrami Day, Four Prunes Day and even a Moldy Cheese Day. Let’s be honest, most of them are pretty eye-roll-worthy—except when it comes to a day devoted entirely to cupcakes. Then, we’re all about it.

For National Vanilla Cupcake Day (yup, there is one) on Nov. 10, Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, the stars of CBS’s hit comedy series 2 Broke Girls, teamed up with Sprinkles cupcakes to celebrate the release of a limited-edition, sitcom-inspired 2 Broke Not So Vanilla cupcake.

More than just cake and frosting, the original creation features a buttery, crumbly graham cracker crust and vanilla cake with chocolate chips mixed in. Topped with dark chocolate frosting and a sprinkling of fleur de sel, this melt-in-your-mouth delight is not so vanilla, indeed!

Currently in its third season, Dennings and Behrs play sassy, financially-struggling roommates who hope to turn their small start up, Max’s Homemade Cupcakes, into a full-fledged, successful storefront all while working as waitresses in a Brooklyn-area diner.

“The entrepreneurial spirit of Sprinkles’ founder, Candace Nelson, is mirrored by Kat and Beth’s characters on 2 Broke Girls,” Lisa Gregorian, Chief Marketing Officer, Warner Bros. Television Group, says in a statement.

Want to get your hands on a cupcake of your own? The decadent dessert won’t break the bank ($3.50 each) and is now available at all Sprinkles locations through November 15.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
