The store, originally scheduled to open in March, is now set to welcome everyone beginning May 7.

The opening delay was due to issues with the store's contractor, the City of Scottsdale and issues with utilities, which were beyond the store's control, said Sprinkles Cupcakes spokesperson, Victoria Stein.

The store will be located on 4501 North Scottsdale Road, right across the street from Fashion Square Mall.

The cupcakes have gotten the attention of Oprah, Martha Stewart, Good Morning America, Regis and Kelly Live as well magazines such as Time Magazine and Bon Appetit.

"The second I heard a Sprinkles store was opening in Scottsdale I called my sister who lives there and planed my next visit to her," 17-year-old Miranda May said from her home in San Jose, Calif.

May wouldn't mind driving to Beverly Hills, approximately 339 of miles from her home, to get a cupcake from Sprinkles Cupcakes, she said.

"I, and everyone I know are obsessed with their cupcakes," May said. "Scottsdale (residents) are so lucky to have their very own store now."
