It’s no sugar-coated exaggeration to say that anyone who has tried Candace Nelson’s nostalgia-inducing yummy-treats, knows that there’s no better way to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Now they can create their own virtual baked goods with the cupcake queen’s help.

Bingo Blitz, the #1 bingo app, is unveiling its newest feature, “Blitzy’s Bakery.” It’s a virtual bakery opened in partnership with Sprinkles Cupcakes founder, Candace Nelson.

Players can collect Ingredients while playing Bingo. They then use them in the whimsically-designed feature, Blitzy’s Bakery, to make virtual sweet treats to win Bingo Blitz Credits. An animated avatar of Candace Nelson appears throughout the feature.

Players can create up to a total of 39 different scrumptious bakery items in Blitzy’s Bakery. Dishes are separated into categories, including pastries, cookies, donuts, cupcakes, ice cream, cakes and pies, and a final ‘Candace’s Sweets’ category. In each category there is a special chef's dish that Candace Nelson created specifically for the feature, with the last category being made up entirely of Candace's own recipes.

Blitzy’s Bakery will be available for all Bingo Blitz players for a limited time.

Candace Nelson is a Los Angeles-based food entrepreneur and accomplished pastry chef known for co-founding Sprinkles, the world’s first cupcake only bakery, and most recently, Pizzana, a Neo-Neapolitan pizzeria in L.A.
