Only in LA would you find an ATM machine that dispenses cupcakes and Honey Boo Boo and her family sought it out pretty much immediately after arriving on the West Coast.

Honey Boo Boo, 7, was as excited as can be to make her selection, and even stuck her head into the machine while still eating her first cake.

Everyone’s favorite reality star was joined by her mother June Shannon.

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show star recently endorsed President Barack Obama as her choice to continue his run as Commander in Chief.

Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel this week, where her mother revealed she is saving the profits from her young daughter’s fame in a fund for her.

June Shannon told Jimmy Kimmel: “I am the manager, the agent in all of this. I know what’s best for my kids… that’s why I chose to put money in the trust fund.

“This journey may last six months or it may last a year but I don’t want ten years down the road Alana or any of the kids to be thinking, <<oh my god, I have nothing to show for it>>. So I wanted to put it in a trust fund, split equally for all the kids.

“So most of the money is there, and the other money goes to our community outreach programmes like the UR brand that we raise for anti-bullying.”

Honey Boo Boo says she doesn’t get her own allowance just yet, but that Mama gives her money to go to the store.

“Like if I wanna go to the store, she gives me my own money. I buy some candy or somethin’, or somethin’ to eat,” she said.

On her nickname as “coupon queen”, June Shannon admitted: “Unfortunately because we’ve had a busy schedule I don’t get to coupon as much as I used to, but when I do get to coupon… oh boy.

“It’s kind of like an addictive drug for me, you save money for your family, but I could be a multimillionaire and I’d still save family for my family.”



Popular LA bakery Sprinkles, which launched a cupcake ATM Stateside, is bringing the device to the UK so that shoppers can get a sugary fix at all hours of the day.

Sprinkles, which is said to be considering a number of different locations in London to install the machine, churned out up to 1,000 cupcakes a day when it opened the same facility in Los Angeles – and even reported that the machine crashed because of high demand.

The ATM would be continuously restocked throughout the day and night with a choice of eight cupcake flavors at any one time, priced at around £3.50 ($5.50) each.

Nicole Schwartz, head of marketing at Sprinkles, explained that the machines can hold up to 600 cupcakes, and any cake dispensed will have only been baked a couple of hours earlier.

She told The Atlantic at the time of the LA launch: “The machine is attached to our bakery, which is essentially a 24-hour operation. By the time our closers leave at night, it’s 11:00 p.m. and our bakers arrive in the wee hours of the morning (2 or 3 a.m.!).

“We’ll constantly be restocking the automat with freshly baked cupcakes so the cupcake you receive will only have been baked a couple hours earlier.”

Whether the London machine will stock cakes for dogs too, like its LA counterpart is as yet unconfirmed.

Sprinkles in LA decided to stock the pet treats because health department regulations do not permit dogs in the bakery she explained, “so you don’t have to tie up Fido while you head inside”.

Sprinkles is as famous in its American birthplace for its A-list fans as it is its buttercream-frosted treats.

Heidi Klum, Blake Lively and the Kardashian sisters have all been spotted in its stores (though quite how they eat cupcakes and maintain those bodies is anyone’s guess).

And since The Great British Bakeoff hit screens, cupcakes are certainly in fashion on this side of the pond too.

Cakes, in flavors such as cinnamon sugar and chocolate coconut, sell for $3.50 each (£2.15) or $39 per dozen (£24) in the States, and prices are likely to be similar when the cakes launch in the UK.
