Sprinkles Cupcakes’ ATM

Yes, the gourmet cupcake craze is in the past, but the Sprinkles Cupcakes ATM is still beyond cool. Spice up your next play date by taking a trip to this 24-hour cupcake-dispensing ATM on Lexington Avenue at 61st street. Sprinkles stocks it twice daily so each cupcake tastes as fresh as it does in the store. Your little sweetie will love pushing the touch screen to choose a flavor, just like a real ATM. Take note: The machine serves doggy cupcakes so be sure to bring the fur baby. Letting Fido and baby polish off a cupcake together might be messy but it certainly makes a great photo op.
