Sprinkles bakery founder Candace Nelson, said she came up with the idea while she was pregnant and suffering sugary cravings. “Even as Sprinkles’ founder, I couldn’t get my midnight cupcake fix,” Nelson said in a press statement about the new cupcake ATM machine.
And we’re talking fresh cupcakes, none of those nasty super-market ones. The cupcake ATM will allegedly deliver up freshly baked cupcakes made within only a few hours of vending — even after store hours. “The machine is attached to our bakery, which is essentially a 24-hour operation,” Schwartz explained. “There’s only a small gap between the time closers leave at night and when the bakers arrive in the wee hours of 2:00-3:00a.m. “We’ll constantly be restocking the automate with freshly baked cupcakes.” And it’s pink!
Cupcakes will be individually wrapped to prevent any damage in transit, the machine holds enough for 600 orders, and the treats will cost four bucks a piece. Good deal.
