A Cupcake ATM Comes to Beverly Hills
We know we just proclaimed NYC's Maison Ladurée macarons were giving cupcakes a run for their frosting, but if you find yourself on the Left Coast and in need of a late-night sugar fix, enter the Cupcake ATM: 24-hours-a-day yum from Sprinkles in Beverly Hills. Right now, up to 600 fresh-baked treats daily in a rotating selection of about eight different signature flavors (chocolate marshmallow, ginger lemon, orange, red velvet) are just a touchscreen jab and credit card swipe away from your gullet. Soon to come, the automat will include cupcake mixes, apparel, and dog treats.
Could this be a start of quirky vending machine trends a la Japan's already infamous beer and schoolgirl panties dispensers? Will there be late-night runs for machine-dispensed Momofuku pork buns or go-go boy jockstraps? The mind positively reels.
