Bank on cupcake ATM to cure your sugar withdrawal

March 2, 2012 at 1:14 PM ET


You know the feeling. It generally comes on around 11 at night, when everything is closed. That’s when your blood sugar suddenly plummets and an emergency alarm starts pealing in your brain: Must… have… sugary treat.

Sprinkles, the L.A. bakery favored by the glitterati, has you covered: as revealed on What's Trending TODAY this morning, they’re going to open the nation’s first cupcake ATM.

24-Hour Sprinkles will be stocked every day with freshly baked cupcakes that you can withdraw anytime of night or day. And just so little Fluffy and Fido don’t feel left out, there’ll even be treats for pets!

Easterners don’t need to feel left out, either; Sprinkles says there are plans to open automated cupcake ATMs in the Big Apple by this summer.
