The Kansas City Business Journal talked to owner Daniel Clark earlier this month about the decision to open at Oak Park Mall:
“We think we are one of the first cupcake companies to open in a mall. We are trying something new and a little more express. You can try a cupcake while you are shopping.”
The mall shop is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Cupcake A La Mode now has three locations with a shop in Park Place that opened last February. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Park Place store has been serving a bacon cupcake (a chocolate cupcake with Guinness buttercream and topped with bacon and pretzel pieces). The October flavors include pumpkin caramel cheesecake and the promise of a candy-corn cupcake for Halloween.
