Beefcake Meets Cupcake: Superman Dean Cain Withdraws From Sprinkles 'ATM'
Is it a case of food porn? Eye candy? Beefcake meets cupcake? To promote a new TV movie on the sugary sweet Hallmark network, onetime TV Superman Dean Cain made a withdrawal the other day from the legendary Sprinkles 24-hour cupcake "ATM."
Cain asked incredulously of his diligent recorders if he could in theory come withdraw a cupcake at, say, 2 a.m. Yep. We haven't been nosing around the Beverly Hills location, but most accounts indicate there's pretty much always a line to put your money in the machine in exchange for a boxed cupcake. (Clearly, Cain did not have to wait.)
How was it for the actor? "That was awesome!" he enthused, perhaps channeling a little Huell Howser.
We'll grant, Dean Cain at the machine is a little 90s for us. So who would you like to see buying a cupcake, ladies? Clooney? Gosling?
