What’s better than having cupcakes? Having cupcakes at 4 in the morning!

‘Can I have a hit of that sweet ass cupcake bro’, you must have heard this before, right? I mean there must have been moments in your life when you were consuming the nectar of God, reimagined for us mortals in the form of red velvet cupcakes and your friend/Arjun Rampal looks at you and mutters those dreaded words. Then you sulk, cuss every living cat possible, breathe fire, ask for mercy, repeat and then finally cave in and share that cupcake you thought was your actual true love.

Now there are people out there who can’t witness you going through this emotional roller coaster of sheer agony. People who care about you. People who care about the hungry children on the streets, Pope Francis, but most of all, they care about cupcakes.

Sprinkles Cupcake Bakery is setting up 24×7 cupcake ATMs throughout New York City. Cupcake ATMs have been out there for a while with Sprinkles setting up an ATM outside its Los Angeles bakery. The success seems to have encouraged Sprinkles to install this at multiple locations.

It’s quite easy to use, you order you cupcake, swipe your card and, voila, a fresh cupcake served up in a decorative box any time you’d like. There are currently nine flavors to tempt your taste buds.

  1. Black & white

  2. Chocolate coconut

  3. Cuban coffee

  4. Dark chocolate

  5. Lemon meringue

  6. Red velvet

  7. Strawberry

  8. Vanilla

  9. Vanilla milk chocolate

If this trend continues, an optimist can expect there to be a few cupcake ATMs in India soon. India, a country where 21% of the population still lives below the poverty line may very well get cupcake ATMs in the near future. If only they had ATMs for rational perspectives. So, if you want to get cupcake ATMs in India or you want to get that hemorrhoids medicine for your dog but are too cheap to buy from your money, here’s a link to your solutions – change.org

So if cupcake ATMs open in India:

What it means for us:

1. Ability to fluently speak in French

2. Sudden realisation of how small and insignificant your mortal presence is to the rest of the universe.

3. Watch Big bang theory without a mild migraine

If you like cupcakes, live in New York City and you’re are a fan of machines that dispense food (Waitaminute! I just found the plot for the next terminator movie!), then you’re in for a treat.

Each cupcake costs $4.25 and the machine will be able to hold 760 cupcakes at a time.
