Would You Like A Cupcake ATM? Here You Go.

If you thought cupcakes were a relic of the 2000s à la Sex and the City, think again. They’re making a comeback at this year’s Vivid Sydney, and what’s more, they’re being dispensed from an ATM. In other words: goodbye money, hello cupcake. 

To get there, you must calmly proceed through the light walk at The Royal Botanic Garden (and check out the spectacular light show along the way, of course). At the end, you’ll find the pastel-coloured cake-dispensing machine of your dreams. All you’ve got to do is process your credit card, choose between a red velvet or chocolate banana flavour, and instead of cash, you’ll get a sweet, sweet frosted cupcake. 

Who wants to be a millionaire? Not us. Let us eat cake instead. Cupcakes are courtesy of Alexandria’s Sparkle Cupcakery and will cost you $7 a pop. 

The cupcake ATM will be in action from Friday 25 May to Saturday 16 June. More info here.
