on the site of its beverly hills storefront, sprinkles bakery is opening a 24-hour cupcake vending machine, the ‘world’s first cupcake automat’.  modeled after an ATM bancomat, the machine dispenses in addition to various varieties of cupcakes, the company’s speciality cupcakes for dogs, cupcake baking mixes, and souvenir items. the device is to be restocked regularly with freshly baked cupcakes, pulling a boxed treat from a wall within the sprinkles storefront and dispensed from a small opening beneath the selection screen.
