Who Waits an Hour for Cupcakes at Sprinkles' New 'ATM' at 2:30 am?
Like many other locals, Heather Schultz set out to make a video of her adventure to buy a cupcake from Sprinkles' new 24-hour automat.
But it wasn't that easy for Heather and her friend Michelle as she explains in this ominously titled video "Disastrous Desserts Part 2: Waiting at Sprinkles Cupcakes ATM."
Heather begins her narration just after 3:30 am. The machine ran out of cupcakes just before they arrived an hour earlier. Although it's cold and they have their puppies waiting for them, these gals seem determined. They brought coffee to keep them up and chairs to sit in while they wait...and wait...and wait. How did they describe the experience? "It's INSANE!"
We don't know how the story ends, but we hope they got those freshly-baked cupcakes sometime before the sun came up!
In the meantime, today might also a good time for us to get introduced to our new cupcake-giving overlord:
