Yes, I did!! On my first day exploring downtown Chicago, I walked past a big store-front of pink plywood that had signs informing me it was the spot of the Cupcake ATM, but that it was under construction and would return soon. I looked around wondering, “Well how am I supposed to get a cupcake now?” And then I noticed people trailing past it into the entrance of a store, and I followed. The line was just out the door, and once I got inside the first thing that hit me was this magnificently sweet aroma. It smelled like icing, and I could see all of these pretty and delicious cupcakes lined up in the glass case, waiting to be purchased and devoured. I scanned the menu of all the different kinds of cupcakes and smiled when I noticed you could buy a “shot” of icing in addition to your cupcake. They had mini cupcakes, and cupcakes for your dog, and cookies, and ice cream…it was splendid. Of course I had to document it, so I shrugged to the ladies behind me in line and said, “Please don’t judge me for taking a selfie.”
At the time, yes, I was in heaven, but I was ignorant to the sheer fabulousness of Sprinkles. Sprinkles is deemed the very creation of cupcake bakeries, called “the world’s first cupcake bakery” by the Food Network. They import their chocolate sprinkles from France! They’ll make a cupcake tower for your party or wedding, they have 18 locations across the United States, 6 of which have Cupcake ATMs, and the founder of Sprinkles, Candace Nelson, is a judge on Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars.” The logo of the brand is their “modern dot” which tops many of their cupcakes. Here is the flavor menu for this week, and you can see they use the dots to mark that they have the cupcakes in stock. Cupcakes are $3.75 apiece, and after finishing my yummy peanut butter chip cupcake, I regretted not buying more. You can order your cupcakes for pickup or delivery from Sprinkles and if you call in advance, they will bring your sweets out to the curb for you.
What’s better than the ability to get a cupcake day or night, 24 hours a day? A stunning and beautiful Cupcake ATM which provides that cupcake. Here’s the ATM in Las Vegas.
And if that’s not amazing enough, check out the Las Vegas storefront, adorned with dots and attracting a crowd.
