Sprinkle Massacre is 1!

One year ago today, I wrote my first post. I described my love for fitness, food, fashion, and sprinkles!

One year later, I am a totally different person. I no longer work full time in the fashion industry. I am studying to become a personal trainer and a health coach. I’ve learned so much about myself and finally found a “happy place” in my life.

I’ve attended a blog conference and many blog events and even ran my first race. I’ve met some amazing people!




I can’t imagine not being involved in the healthy living blog community. It keeps me motivated every day. I am especially thankful for YOU, all of my readers. I truly appreciate everyone who visits sprinkle massacre! I had no idea where I would be last year at this time, and I can’t imagine it any other way than it is today!

Now for the fun stuff!


Because I love you all so much, I’m personally hosting a giveaway to show my appreciation. I’m always concocting recipes from products that I scoop up from Netrition, so this is your opportunity to buy some of the products and try out some new recipes! They have everything from protein powders to fiber and protein bars to coconut and almond flour! Shipping is only $4.95 no matter how much you order or where you live. Plus, it ships super fast!

PRIZE: $25 gift card to Netrition.com

And my birthday cake would most definitely be a carrot cake with delicious cream cheese frosting. Typically from the same bakery every year because its my favorite!!!


2 Mollie April 3, 2012 at 9:04 am

and I just liked you on fb!


3 Marilyn April 3, 2012 at 9:20 am

Congratulations!! I am so proud of you! My favorite birthday cake is silver batter with butter cream icing, but has to be from the only bakery here that adds a touch of almond extract to the batter to give it that hint of an amaretto taste!


4 Marilyn April 3, 2012 at 9:23 am

I liked you on Facebook a long time ago!!!


5 StoriesAndSweetPotatoes April 3, 2012 at 9:38 am

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I love your blog!
My favorite birthday cake is either a Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake from Coldstone or a vanilla cake with buttercream icing from a local bakery!


10 Diana April 3, 2012 at 10:10 am

my birthday cake has always been red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. It has been this way since I was a little girl <3 Happy Birthday SM!


11 Brigitt April 3, 2012 at 10:35 am

Happy blogiversary!

I don’t like cake. And I can’t eat cake anymore (gluten kills my gut), so now I have a great excuse to scrape the frosting off. I LOVE FROSTING. :)


15 Kelsey April 3, 2012 at 10:55 am

It was my birthday on Saturday! :) I had Sprinkles cupcakes, white with vanilla buttercream! My favorite though is my mom’s white cake with rich chocolate frosting and lots of pink sprinkles :)


16 Maria April 3, 2012 at 11:03 am

Happy birthday! I found your blog about a month ago, and I love it. I especially love the name, as I am equally obsessed with sprinkles. Glad to know I found someone who shares my obsession (…as I have been known to eat them straight from the jar).

My birthday cake would be a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, absolutely covered in sprinkles. Obviously lol


17 Maria April 3, 2012 at 11:05 am

I also follow you on twitter.


18 Maria April 3, 2012 at 11:05 am

19 Shanna, like Banana April 3, 2012 at 11:25 am

Woohoo, congrats girl!

I’m a BIG fan of vanilla cake, maybe laced with a little lemon buttercream. De-lish!

Or angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. yeah that’s good too ;)

Happy Birthday SM!!! I tweeted & liked on facebook! I love ice cream cakes & cupcakes!! (with sprinkles of course)


23 Amanda April 3, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Hmmm. Favorite Cake? I would have to say Flourless Chocolate Cake with a Raspberry Topping. The combination of chocolate and fruit is to die for!


24 Jordan D April 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Happy Birthday, Sprinkle Massacre! I love your blog.

Honestly, I don’t really like cake. I’d rather have a tropical fruit tart or a pumpkin trifle. Ideally…a sushi love boat haha.

27 Jordan K April 3, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Well a very Happy Birthday to SprinkleMassacre indeed!
My birthday is in May – right when strawberries seem to be at their most delicious, so my favorite cake to eat on my birthday is angel food cake with sliced strawberries and whipped cream! It makes my mouth water just typing it! :-)


28 Paige @ Running Around Normal April 3, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Happy blog birthday! You should be so proud of your accomplishments. For me? Chocolate cake. Always chocolate cake ;)


29 Ashley @ Freckles & Spice April 3, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Yay! You won my 1 yr giveaway. Hope your bday brings me luck.
My mom used to make me a cookie cake every year. Last year, I actually did not get a cake!! This year I want a cupcake like classic vanilla with a strawberry butter cream or ice cream sundae from Lula’s Sweet Apothecary.


30 Stephanie April 3, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Happy Birthday!!! My favorite birthday cake is a mint chocolate chop ice cream cake with an oreo crust!

41 Lindsey F April 3, 2012 at 8:35 pm

A plate of rainbow cookies!!! But not the cake the ratio of chocolate to jelly to almond paste is just off.


42 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Happy Bl-irthday!! I love your blog, you’re so open about your life-its ups AND downs. It’s been a priviledge as a reader to “witness” all of the changes you’ve made.



43 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I “liked” you on Facebook!


44 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I’m now Following you on Twitter too!


45 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Last comment-I’m not only following you, I tweeted a birthday message as well. Congrats again.


46 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Last comment-I have to re-word it somehow though because I keep getting an error saying it was a duplicate comment but I also sent out a tweet about your blogging anniversary.


47 Bridgette April 3, 2012 at 8:59 pm

I’d much rather have cupcakes over cake. One of the winner’s of the Food Network show Cupcake Wars is from Rochester, NY and coincidentally, her shop is about 3 miles from my house which is both a good thing and bad!

Chocolate with marshmallow fluff filling, strawberry frosting with a drizzle of chocolate sauce Mmmmm delicious!!


48 JR April 3, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Happy birthday! Nothing beats rich dark chocolate cake.

50 Kayla April 4, 2012 at 6:12 am

Happy Anniversary! This past year I had a gluten-free, dairy-free oreo cake that was made by whole foods that my mom and I actually trekked back 3.5 hours in the car JUST for my birthday. It’d so hard to find a good gluten-free, dairy-free cake that tastes good so it was worth the 3.5 car ride holding it :)


51 Kristen @ livinlifeinlouie April 4, 2012 at 8:40 am

Happy ONE YEAR!!!
~we always have confetti cake for birthdays :)


52 Allie April 4, 2012 at 12:04 pm

happy birthday!!


53 janetha April 4, 2012 at 4:43 pm

HAPPY ONE YEAR TO YOU! It sure seems like you’ve been blogging longer..? Love you!


54 Erin April 4, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Happy Birthday! Congrats! Nothing beats a classic Dairy Queen ice cream cake!


55 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish April 5, 2012 at 2:04 am

I’m so thankful to have met you in NYC last December, Jillian!! Happy Birthday to Sprinkle Massacre! I love coming here and reading about what’s going on in your exciting life. There are so many great things in store for you, I just know it. :)

I’ve always requested an ice cream cake on my birthday. I think it’s because I actually don’t really love cake all that much. But ice cream? Anytime. Anywhere. I’d probably be happiest with just a big bowl of ice cream and a candle stuck in the center, but that wouldn’t be “birthday-ish” enough, ya know?


56 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish April 5, 2012 at 2:04 am

I’m *loving* you on FB!


57 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish April 5, 2012 at 2:04 am

I would have a cannoli cake for my birthday!


60 Jillian April 5, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Ooh cannoli cake!? That sounds delicious!


61 Suzanne April 6, 2012 at 7:18 pm

My cake would be anything with chocolate and peanut butter!

Happy blogiversary!!! So exciting :). If I could have any cake on my birthday it would be this vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting from a bakery in my hometown. It’s amazing!
