Yes, You Really Can Get Cake From An ATM In Las Vegas

Oh, Las Vegas, the City of Sin. One of the few places on Earth totally and completely devoted to the pursuit of excess. It's a (more or less) lawless land where revelers from all over the world gather to openly seek out sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll — and, of course, money, food, and alcohol — at all hours of the day and night. In addition to gambling, getting married at a 24-hour chapel, chowing down at an all-you-can-eat buffet, and getting drunk on free resort cocktails, Las Vegas enthusiasts can peep wet t-shirt contests and dine on loaded hamburgers that pretty much promise to give you a heart attack.

In short, Las Vegas is long on vices and short on judgment, no matter what your particular poison might be. And, if your guilty pleasure is cake, you are in luck! A particular Vegas casino is offering a clever, all-hours way for you to get your fix. Read on to get the sweet scoop.

This machine is a piece of cake

As documented in a recently posted TikTok video, the Harrah's casino in Las Vegas has installed what the internet appears to be calling a "cake ATM." The apparatus could be more accurately described as a vending machine (or compared to the Automats of yesteryear). To use it, simply select your desired layer cake flavor from a touchscreen, pay $8.95 with your credit or debit card, and the machine will drop a slice of cake already sealed up in a plastic clamshell container (via Snopes).

In the video, the machine can be identified as hailing from Hoboken, New Jersey, where "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro's Carlo's Bakery provides the slices: its famous rainbow layer cake, chocolate rainbow layer cake, red velvet layer cake, carrot layer cake, and "Americana" layer cake, stacked with red, white, and blue pastry. Open 24 hours a day, it is a tempting option for all those with a sweet tooth roaming around Sin City.
