Sprinkles Cupcake ATM Dispensing 1,000 Cupcakes a Day, Malfunctions

As expected, the recently-installed cupcake ATM at the Sprinkles in LA has cupcake crazies lined up around the block. In fact, the lines were over 50-people-deep even when the regular bakery was open and "staffed with live humans." Demand has been so high in fact, that the ATM recently malfunctioned causing some temporary moments of panic (apparently the rate of one cupcake dispensed per minute was too much for the machine to handle). But Sprinkles management ensured LAist that the ATM is back up and running. Phew. Also look out NYC, Sprinkles plans to roll out three of these machines in the Big Apple in the near future!

  1. What is the big excitement for the machine? It's like the machine that can make a pizza while you wait in 3 minutes...just a gimmick.
