SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- How would you like to be able to satisfy your cupcake cravings at any hour of the day or night? Now you can, as the Valley's first 'Cupcake ATM' opened to the public on Tuesday Dec 9.

It only takes a credit/debit card and they are $4.25 a cupcake.

The ATM will dispense freshly baked cupcakes 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The first Sprinkles Cupcake ATM was installed at their Beverly Hills store in March of 2012. Since then, the machine has launched in several major cities across the United States including, Dallas, Atlanta, New York and Las Vegas.

The cupcakes are the same ones served inside the bakery each day. The Scottsdale ATM will hold a little more than 500 of the sweet treats and is restocked three-to-five times a day to ensure freshness. For those with dietary restrictions, the Cupcake ATM will also have their vegan, gluten free and sugar free cupcakes. Even though the store is only open 12 hours a day, people will be able to get a cupcake any time-day or night!

The ATM will be on the north side of the store. Since the cupcakes are fragile, a special robotic arm was developed that uses a suction to grasp the cupcake box and gently move it to the customer window. A clear glass display will allow anyone to see just how it works. Each ATM is customized and carefully crafted specific to that store location.
