Cupcake A La Mode now open in Park Place

Cupcake A La Mode recently opened in Leawood's Park Place.

This is the second location for owner/executive pastry chef Lisa Clark and her husband Daniel, who opened their first store west of the Plaza, at 1209 West 47th Street, last January.

The new shop is awash in pink. There's a bookshelf filled with princess hats

and sparkly stuffed animals, but the bakery counter at the back is the real attraction. When Clark started her first location she

was baking four dozen cupcakes; today that number is closer to 25 dozen

-- even 40 dozen on Saturdays.

Cupcake A La Mode divides its cupcake menu into two parts: chocolate

and vanilla cake. The cupcakes are $3 each or $33 for a dozen; those

with smaller appetites or children can opt for the child-sized cupcakes

at $2.25 a piece.

Chocolate cupcakes include flavors like marshmallow fondue (semi-sweet chocolate, marshmallow creme icing, a sprinkle of graham crackers and a chocolate covered graham cracker), chocolate obsession (chocolate buttercream icing and grated semisweet chocolate), and the Bella Nutella (Nutella, chocolate hazelnut buttercream icing, a Rocher-chocolate-covered hazelnut truffle and chocolate hazelnut pirrouhette cookie).

Vanilla flavors are just as varied: stuffed French toast (cream cheese icing, maple cinnamon buttercream icing, sprinkling of powdered sugar); Amaretto sweet (almond buttercream icing, almond slivers, topped with a maraschino cherry); and raspberry lemonade (raspberry buttercream and lemon buttercream, sugary raspberry and lemon wedge).  

Cupcake enthusiasts should take note that Cupcake A La Mode offers both cream cheese-based and buttercream icing. And the cupcake cafe is set to offer two new flavors on March 2: Bailey's Irish Cream and Apple Pie.
