Sprinkles Debuts 24-Hour Cupcake ATM

By: Victoria Phillips

Update: L.A. isn’t the only city feeling the 24-hour cupcake love — Sprinkles is bringing automated cupcake machines to NY, too!  Exact locations aren’t confirmed, but ATMs are planned for the company’s midtown, downtown and upper west locations, according to Gothamist.

It’s midnight. You have a serious cupcake craving, but all of your favorite bakeries are closed. What do you do?

A. Raid your cabinets for anything remotely sweet.

B. Suck it up and go to the nearest convenience store for a muffin. (It’s kind of like a cupcake without icing, right?)

C. Go to Sprinkles Cupcakes new 24-hour cupcake ATM.

If you live in L.A., the “world’s first cupcake automat,” as Sprinkles Cupcakes (yes, that Sprinkles—the company who basically started the cupcake craze.) calls it, will dispense fresh cupcakes, mixes, apparel and even doggy cupcakes 24 hours a day, according to a recent LAist article.

And in case you want some ice cream, too, Sprinkles Ice Cream is in the works. This is what the company told LAist:

“Our ice cream will be hand-crafted American ice cream using only the finest ingredients, staying in line with the Sprinkles philosophy. Scooped into crisp waffle cones, pressed between fluffy cupcake tops or piled high into sundaes topped with housemade sauces and toppings, Sprinkles Ice Cream shop is a back to basics creamery with a Sprinkles twist! Sprinkles Ice Cream will also serve up freshly baked cookies and brownies!”

Don’t live in L.A.? That’s OK, we’ve got some inspiration for your next home cupcake project:
