SPRINKLES CUPCAKES via ATM
A couple of months ago I saw a post on Facebook from one of my friends where she was eating a cupcake that she bought trough an ATM at Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida. So, this past week when my family and I took a mini vacation to Disney World, I had to stop at and check it out for myself.
The cupcake company is Sprinkles Cupcakes and it is located inside the newly renovated Disney Springs previously known as Downtown Disney. It is a cupcake store but I wanted to see how this cupcake ATM machine worked.
The ATM machine is located outside of the cupcake store and it is clearly marked CUPCAKE ATM. It is a touch screen when you choose the flavor from the selection on the screen, I chose a coconut cupcake, you are then asked how many you would like and would you like to continue shopping. I only chose one because let’s face it, they are $5.50 per cupcake and I only wanted to try it out. After you have completed the transaction, the window opens and your cupcake(s) appears in a box.
I think it is such a cool concept specially when you are craving something sweet specifically a cupcake and the stores are closed. I just hope that before they close the store, the ATM machine is stocked nicely.
I was afraid that the cupcake was going to be stale but I was surprised that the cupcake was moist, fresh and delicious. I have to admit that for the price of $5.50 it could have been a little bit bigger but it was enough for both my son and I.
Definitely a great concept and I hope they bring it to the Miami area. I know that many times my kids and I, while in the mood for cupcakes, have gone to a well-known cupcake store here in my area only to find it closed would have loved to find a cupcake ATM machines. Not only those who love cupcakes benefit from this concept but the cupcake store would also benefit from the after hour sales, of course, as long as the taste and freshness is there.
So if you are in the Orlando, Florida area, specifically in Disney Springs, make sure that you stop by and get your ATM cupcake.
