If your idea of heaven is cupcakes 24/7, I’ve found your people,
Here in Las Vegas, Sprinkles Cupcakes have an ATM which will automatically dispense cupcakes on demand. With a bank of 600 cupcakes to draw from, you can be pretty sure your favourite flavour is going to be there when you need it.
Sprinkles stores are located throughout the USA at 17 loctions although not all outlets have ATMs. Check the website to see if you are going to be lucky. The first cupcake ATM opened in Beverly Hills in 2012.
The Las Vegas store is located just off the strip on the mall that leads to the High Roller, next to the LINQ Hotel.
The ATM operates easily and my cupcake was dispensed without a hitch. The cupcake was dense and moist, obviously recently cooked.
Some, but not all flavours (notably my favourite salted caramel flavour) are available as cupcake kits so you can enjoy the Sprinkle experience at home.
I’ve been searching for the perfect cupcake since they first came to prominence about eight years ago. I can’t say this is the best one I’ve tasted, although it would be close, but this is the most novel and efficient distribution system I’ve seen. I’m glad I don’t live close otherwise I could see it as the perfect late night sugar hit destination.
Sprinkles also offers ice cream, but not through ATMs. Favors include red velvet, cap'n crunch and salty caramel along with cookie flavors such as salted oatmeal cornflake and peanut butter pretzel chip.
