Cupcake ATM coming to D.C.?

While denizens of other cities are hoping they’ll be the first people outside of Los Angeles to welcome the new “cupcake automats” to town, a spokesperson for Sprinkles told the Washington Business Journal that D.C. is at the top of the list. Locations around the District including U Street, Eastern Market and Columbia Heights are currently being researched.

We hope the machines will be built to weather the sheer force of D.C.’s cupcake craze — the original Automated Cupcake Machine in L.A. ended up crashing under the pressure of dispensing more than 1,000 cupcakes a day.
