I’m about to clean out my account on cupcakes.
For many, a trip to the ATM, particularly after a long weekend, is a somewhat trepidatious process. One mind trick is to simply make the withdrawal without peaking at your balance – if money comes out, it means you still have some in the account. When making a withdrawal from Sprinkles cupcake ATM, it’s kind of like that, except much more exciting. [Featured image: @emmaleine_]
