Ever wonder what the best music is for making cupcakes? How about what music goes best with being a part of the cupcake craze? Sprinkles owner Candace Nelson trades her spatula for headphones as the next local name to take a spin in KCRW's Gust DJ Project.The cupcake maven's taste in music is a little like her bakery's famous product, fun and sweet. “I really like to keep things positive and upbeat. I mean…my business is cupcakes, which is like dealing in sunshine, right?" said Nelson. To get things moving in the kitchen when she first started out, Nelson would play Lionel Ritchie's "Dancing on the Ceiling." Check out the rest of Nelson's picks online. We understand if afterward you get a hankering for a cupcake.
