Washington, Jun 20 (IANS): You may have heard of vending machines or ATMs that give out gold bars or chocolate treats or potato chips. But a bakery in America has now come up with the world's first 24-hour "cup-cake machine".
The pink-coloured device at the Sprinkles Bakery in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles holds 595 of the tiny cup treats, Britain's The Sun tabloid reported.
Customers can buy the cakes with their credit cards.
A touch-screen display lets people choose from a range of flavours, including chocolate marshmallow and cinnamon sugar.
And for those who want the tasty treats during odd hours of the day, the machine is available 24 hours a day.
