Sprinkles Finally Expands 24-Hour Cupcake ATM To New York City

Dancing will not get you a free cupcake.

Back in 2012, we covered the opening of the very first cupcake-filled ATM (Automated Tastiness Machine) at Sprinkles in Los Angeles. It took two years, but the cakeomat has finally made its way across the country, and Sprinkles has installed a cupcake ATM at their Manhattan bakery.

The bakery itself is open from nine in the morning to nine at night, leaving twelve hours when the good (and bad) people of New York are unable to buy cupcakes…from Sprinkles, anyway. There must be cupcakes available in many other places. Yet the ATM exists to cover sugar emergencies during the other twelve hours of the day.

Sprinkles claims to be the first cupcake-focused bakery, and innovated new ideas in cupcake deployment like the original ATM and the first cupcake truck.

For the grand opening, the shop put gift cards good for a dozen cupcakes, a cupcake party, and a $500 prepaid AmEx card in the boxes. Pricey baked goods and the potential to win prizes? People are

At this rate, there will be a cupcake ATM in every city in the United States….probably sometime in the 25th century.
