An update on the big cupcake story of the week, the Sprinkles Cupcakes 24-hour "cupcake ATM" automated cupcake machine. It's not just for those in Beverly Hills! 3 of them are coming to New York City, according to the New York Daily News:
Good news for emergency sugar cravings — a Manhattan bakery is rolling out three 24-hour cupcake “ATMs” this year.
Called “cupcake automats,” the outposts of Sprinkles Cupcakes are planned for midtown, downtown and the upper West Side with the first whipping up business by summer, a company rep told the Daily News.
“We’re working hard on the exact locations now,” spokeswoman Nicole Schwartz said. “They’ll be restocked constantly throughout the day, so if it’s Wednesday, you’ll only get our Wednesday flavors.”
She said bakers at the popular Sprinkles on Lexington Ave. and E. 60th St. will pack each machine with a few hundred designer cakes at a time for on-the-go addicts.
