Cupcake ATMs

( 4UMF NEWS ) Cupcake ATMs:

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.

Company founder Candace Nelson, a judge of Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars,” said she got the idea when powerful after-hour cravings struck during one of her pregnancies.

“I thought there has to be a way, and so the concept of 24-hour Sprinkles was born,” Nelson told The News.

I can’t even lie; I wold hit one of them up during a late-night craving fix…
