Sprinkle's 24-hr Cupcake ATM

(7 years ago)
The latest from our culinary editor, Jackson! You can find more of our delectable delights at Tasteologie.Cupcakes are wonderful. While they have perhaps become a little over exposed in the last few years, they are certainly still a tasty treat. There are so many different kinds, different cakes, different frostings… it seems like there is one for every mood. Sprinkles has upped the ante by providing cupcakes for when you are feeling anti-social, hungry at 3am, nostalgic for automats, or for when you just want dessert handed to you from a robot with its own twitter handle. Their new Cupcake ATM has certainly captured the imagination of the Internet, Los Angeles, and now me. I too have succumbed to the siren’s call of that winning combination of fat, sugar, and machine. The Sprinkles Cupcake ATM even has its own twitter - @CupcakeATM and facebook. Take a peek at our cupcake adventure on the next page!TO PAGE 2 of "Sprinkle’s 24-hr Cupcake ATM"! -----> (Want more visual goodness? See NOTCOT.com + NOTCOT.org)
