Amazing Pumpkins!

23 Oct

Well it’s getting to that time of year again when the pumpkin carving kit comes out. As i am still trying to decide what to carve this year i have been searching the internet for ideas. Last year i did this spongebob pumpkin that won me a huge bag of Halloween goodies courtesy of Asda as previously shown here in last years Halloween antics post. This year i am just so undecided on what to do so if anyone has any ideas of what i should attempt to carve on my pumpkin this year please feel free to leave me a comment below.

Anyway before i get side tracked and start babbling on even more, i will get back on track now, where was i…oh yes that’s right. I was searching the internet for ideas when i came across some of the most amazing pumpkin carving i have even seen in my life. So although this post is not cake related i thought i would share with you all anyway so you can appreciate the amazing skills of this very talented artist.

An ATM with a difference!

4 Mar

Well here it is, drum roll please!

This ATM is not just any ATM, there is something very different about it. Yes i know it is pink and no that is not what makes it so different. Well it does…but…erm no that’s not it anyway. Swiftly moving on…… This ATM machine is actually the world’s 1st 24 hour cupcake dispensing machine, yes you heard me right, cupcakes! You will not find any money been dispensed from this machine but on the other hand if you are looking for instant sugary goodness, then this machine is for you.

This 1st of its kind ATM is located at Sprinkles cupcakes in Beverly Hills.

 LAist got the official word from a spokesperson for Sprinkles: This automatic cupcake machine dispenses freshly baked cupcakes, cupcake mixes, apparel and even cupcakes for Fido! In the heart of Beverly Hills nestled between Sprinkles Cupcakes and the brand new Sprinkles Ice Cream, 24 Hour Sprinkles will be continuously restocked day and night with a variety of freshly baked cupcake flavors.

Here’s the report from CBS News:

Sprinkles Cupcake ATM

24 hour sprinkles even has its own Facebook page.

I wonder how long it will be until this idea catches on here in the U.K

Is this a good idea or not? Tell me what do you think.
