Just when we thought that the cupcake craze was out, something like the 24-hour Cupcake ATM comes along and pulls us back in.
Brought to us by Sprinkles — who some credit/blame for starting this imperishable food trend in the first place — the Cupcake ATM has been installed in front of their Beverly Hills location. Converted and painted pink, the former cash machine dispenses cupcakes and several other items from the store, 24/7. But what, no drive-up? This is LA.
The official word from Sprinkles:
This automatic cupcake machine dispenses freshly baked cupcakes, cupcake mixes, apparel and even cupcakes for Fido! In the heart of Beverly Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24 Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors.
UPDATE: Gothamist is reporting that Cupcake ATMs will soon be available in New York City.
UPDATE II: Now with video evidence.
