I must say I’ve seen cupcake trucks [Cupcake Stop], large gourmet cupcakes [Crumbs Bake Shop], and even bite-sized cupcakes [Baked by Melissa] but have yet to see this. Candace came up with the idea while pregnant and like most women they have these late night cravings, which for her was cupcakes. They were unavailable to her dissatisfaction but like all entrepreneurs what is not available must be created.
Candace Nelson, best known as a judge from Food Network‘s “Cupcake Wars” and also the founder of Sprinkles has activated their very first 24-Hour Cupcake ATM in their Beverly Hills location. The ATM dispenses fresh cupcakes around the clock for $4.00 [ $3.50 + .50 ATM Fee]. Flavors include Vanilla, Red Velvet, and Milk Chocolate to name a few. The ATM is stocked with an amazing 600 cupcakes that is constantly rotated throughout the day.
As per the Huff Post, “We stopped by to test out the cupcake ATM and found the process as easy as getting a soda from the vending machine or money from an ATM.” Check out the process of getting a cupcake from Sprinkles below.
New Yorkers not to worry, these Cupcake ATMs are set it hit New York very soon in Midtown, Downtown, and the Upper West Side. Their New York location is 780 Lexington Ave. [Between 60th & 61st St] if you would like to grab a cupcake now. I’ll keep you posted once they’ve arrived and activated!
