There is a serious cupcake obsession alert in progress!
As reported earlier, Sprinkles in Beverly Hills came up with the uhMAZing idea of a 24 hour cupcake ATM.
The ACM (that's Automated Cupcake Machine) debuted to HEAVY traffic (duh!) and it couldn't handle it!
The machine has 600 cupcakes … but it was receiving over 1,000 sales a day!
Even though the machine is 24 hours, more people were staying in line for the ACM than actually go inside and order their treats in person. When the ACM broke, an engineer was quickly brought in to get it back up and running in two hours.
Now, Sprinkles has an employee watch over the machine to make sure nothing bad happens.
That's shit cray!
However, once the craze dies down (it may not ever!), the machine may have left over cupcakes at the end of the night. But those won't going to waste; the extra cupcakes will be donated to charity.
Until then, be safe when ordering your cupcakes near Beverly Hills!
