A cupcake ATM could come to the Upper West Side within a year, a spokesman for Sprinkles Cupcakes tells us. Sprinkles just opened a cupcake ATM on the Upper East Side at 60th and Lexington, doling out freshly made cupcakes 24 hours a day.
We had first written about the possibility of a cupcake ATM two years ago, and then given up on it, figuring it was just a marketing ploy that would never actually happen.
But now it exists, and the cupcake ATM is a part of New York.
(Woe is me, the New York of Dorothy Parker and Langston Hughes is now the New York of cupcakes-on-demand.). Okay, back to the article.
Nicole Schwartz, a spokeswoman for Sprinkles, said that the company is hoping to open one on the Upper West Side “within the year.”
