REPORTER: Freshly baked - out of a vending machine? Seems unlikely, until now that is. The "Cupcake ATM" machine was launched by Sprinkles Cupcakes, a chain of gourmet cupcake stores. The ATM dispenses all the flavors that are sold at the adjacent store, but are available 24 hours a day.
MAURA WEBER, REGIONAL MANAGER FOR SPRINKLES CUPCAKES: "And we pack them up throughout the day and hand-stock the ATM. From that point we set the ATM to go, and depending on what flavor you pick the robotic arm picks your flavor, you swipe your card, and just like that you have a cupcake."
REPORTER: Cupcake hungry New Yorkers lined up to try the machine as soon as it opened.
DANA PARRA, CUPCAKE LOVER: "It was awesome, so exciting. I love cupcakes and Sprinkles is my favorite. So, super exciting and I hope they open more ATMs around the city with cupcakes."
RANDA ABDELHAMID AND HER DAUGHTER SALMA, CUPCAKE LOVER: "It's very nice. It's fun, she was so excited for it. And you know we've seen the announcement on Facebook so we really wanted to come and check it out. It was really fun."
REPORTER: The sugar rush costs $4.25 (USD). And lucky for you, this ATM accepts all cards. Satisfying your sweet tooth has never been easier.
ATM is an abbreviation for automatic teller machine (cash machine in Britain). Normally, you would get money from an ATM, but the term is apparently now being used for machines which distribute things like cupcakes.
