Cupcakes on the go are all the rage these days - first with Sprinkles Cupcakes ATMs, and now with Baked by Melissa's cupcake pod machine. The cupcake dispenser, which resembles a giant gumball machine, made its debut during New York Fashion Week, but those who were hoping to see it gracing city streets are out of luck.
The pod machine is now only available to rent for events, with a 1,000 cupcake minimum for five hours, which fills half the machine. Make a selection between either 1,000 standard variety cupcakes for $4,200 or 1,000 custom cupcakes for $4,300. Up your game by ordering 2,000 minis for $5,000 or $5,200, depending on which cakes you order. Any additional cupcakes go for $1.30 each.
Along with the machine, renters will receive an iPad stand, tokens for the machine, a recycling bin and a Baked by Melissa employee to be on hand throughout the event. The pricing also includes both pick-up and delivery within the five boroughs of the city. If you are interested in renting the machine, visit the Baked by Melissa Website.
Hopefully, this amazing and gluttonous invention will be available to the public soon!
