The best things about travel are the curiosities you discover along the way. In early Spring, we traveled to Dallas to conduct a Creativity Collective for a client. Heading out to dinner, we stumbled upon a vibrant pink machine called the Cupcake ATM, dispensing – you guessed it – tasty cupcakes in a multitude of flavors. To withdraw this flavorful currency, simply touch the screen and choose from nine flavors (strawberry, vanilla, milk chocolate, black & white, chocolate coconut, Cuban coffee, dark chocolate, red velvet, and lemon meringue). Swipe your card for a total price of $4.25 per cupcake. In less than 30 seconds, a small door to the right of the screen rises presenting this baked treat for your devouring pleasure.
Now if only banks could produce such tasty transactions, we’d open up a red velvet-filled savings account today.
