If you ever are in Chicago, please please please stop over at Sprinkles. It’s a great cupcake shop right off of Michigan Ave. I wish I had a pic but those cupcakes lasted all of two seconds as soon as we brought them home. I mean, they went FAST. I think I could have had like, five more.  🙂

My hubs and I did a post Christmas shopping stint in the Gold Coast last week to see what sales they had going on. Knowing it’s been a forever and a day since we have gone, I suggested we stop at Sprinkles before we headed back home.

They have all kinds of great flavors ranging from Coconut Lemon to your classic Dark Chocolate. To die!

What is really cool about this place is that you don’t even have to step inside to buy one-say what? That’s right. Outside the shop there is a Cupcake ATM machine where you can pick your flavor on a touch screen, swipe a credit card, and out pops a cupcake. I didn’t take pics of the case either because it was completely cleaned out by the time we got there.

So Cupcake ATM style it was.

Next time(trust me, there WILL be a next time), photo-promise.

I was not paid or given free cupcakes for this post (I wish!). Opinions here are my very own.


  1. Love the cupcakes ! Wow I would love to see a cupcake ATM.

      They have a California location too, that was the first one. Yea, the ATM was really convenient because they ran out of them inside!

  2. Aaah! I was shopping along Michigan Ave last week and I missed Sprinkles cupcakes! How did I let that happen?? We did get a chance to check out Eataly and that was pretty cool. Thanks for the heads up – I’ll be sure to try out Sprinkles next time I’m in the area!
