Another Thing I’m Glad She Did, So I Don’t Have To: Sprinkles ATM

I have this friend. I love having her as a friend for many reasons, but one of the more superficial ones is because she does a bunch of semi-crazy shit that I am too lazy to attempt. For instance, she is a huge Disneylandophile, so when they were open 24 hours for leap year, guess who was there all night? Yep. I bet when they start taking regular people to Mars, she’ll be on the first shuttle, and she will text me a photo of herself with the Earth in the background, waving at me.

Anyway, Sprinkles in LA opened a Cupcake ATM. What need is there for such a thing?

Haven’t you ever been out late at night and had a craving for a cupcake, and all the bakeries and even the grocery store bakery cases were all shut down for the night, so you went home and threw a stick of butter and two cups of powdered sugar into a bowl and spooned it up into your mouth? Not that I have done that. I’ve just, you know, heard of people doing that.

So my friend, who lives in the heart of cupcake land (and though some people say cupcakes are over, they are not any more over than frozen yogurt, which is still going strong.Go to any yogurtland on a Saturday night and see what I mean), went to the Sprinkles cupcake ATM today. 24 hours of cupcakes! She sent me this video.

Another thing I’m glad she did, so I don’t have to.

I like it because there’s just the sound of cars, then wind howling like banshees over the moors…of the streets of the city of angels.

Here’s the real promotional Sprinkles cupcake ATM video, if you want to see it:

  1. You are hilarious!!! You would love the Cupcake ATM! One day I will make you do something silly with me! By the way, I talked to one of the Sprinkles guys who told me the ATM holds 600 cupcakes & they have been selling out three times over on a weekend night! They have cupcake bakers on site at 2 am to replenish. Crazy, huh?!
