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.
