Owned by Buddy Valastro, or The Cake Boss as he’s better known, the famous Carlo’s Bakery has these pop-up, self-serve cake vending machines set up in CF Chinook Centre, The Core Shopping Mall, Southcentre Mall, and CrossIron Mills.
These are the only four of these fully automated cake ATMs in Western Canada, which makes the cake lovers of Calgary pretty lucky. There are also four in Quebec and 16 in Ontario.

Inside of these dessert-based ATM machines are several beautiful pieces of cake to choose from. You simply choose the flavour you’d like to try, pay, and then immediately get served a slice from one of the most well-known bakers in the world.
Flavours vary from machine to machine, but a few favourites include red velvet, cookies and cream, classic chocolate, or the signature Rainbow slice.
Whatever slice you choose, these machines are temperature-controlled and fully re-stocked every day to ensure you’re getting the best cake possible.
Valastro initially rose to fame on TLC’s Cake Boss, which then resulted in many spin-off shows and best-selling cookbooks.
These cake ATMs are a way for people all over to try the cakes and cookies that had our mouths watering while watching him make them on screen.
Stay tuned for any more of these cake ATMs popping up in the city.
