Recently three cake vending machines from Carlo's Bake Shop appeared in the PATH downtown. I'd read about them and how there have been line-ups and the machines have been running out of cake. The machines are now filled twice a day.
I don't get downtown often but was today so figured I'd check one out. The closest one to me was in the Richmond Adelaide Centre, just north of Rexall. When I got in line, there were five people ahead of me and the line continued behind me as I waited my turn.
First you see what's available, pick what you want and then pay (credit or debit only). A slice comes to about $11.
There were three flavours available (chocolate had run out and would be arriving in about a half hour) so I chose rainbow. Here it comes!
There it is!
Don't forget to grab a fork.
I'm not big on sweets but I'm glad I tried it. I can see what the fuss is about as it was a good piece of cake. It will be interesting to see how long the machines last ... are they a passing fad or testing the marketing or there for good?
