If not for the wonderful friendly service, I would have rated this a poor. They were selling day old Valentines cupcakes, at the regular expensive price, but when I bit into them, they were horribly stale. Pretty disappointing, especially when they should know how long their cupcakes last. The place was clean and there was street parking right in front... More

In September, my family visited KC for a Royals game & afterward happened upon the Plaza and saw the cupcake sign! I immediately bum-rushed the store & was welcomed by a wonderful woman who did not have many cupcakes left but I still saw delicious delights that made my stomach growl! I purchased 2 dozen of different varieties for $2... More

We really enjoyed the cupcakes we purchased here during our visit to Kansas City this weekend. My husband loved the ChocoLatte one he picked out. He loves the flavor! My girls enjoyed a chocolate obsession flavor and a French vanilla one. They really enjoyed the taste and yumminess of the cupcakes. I personally am a fan of snores and chose... More

Gourmet cupcakes pretty much say it all. Wonderful flavors but be prepared for lots of frosting. Service was wonderful and it made for a great dessert on a special evening when we were too full to order dessert at the restaurant.

Soft, moist and still warm, the cupcake was everything it was hyped to be, and the frosting was the least overpowering of all the flavors we tried. Subtle yet salty, sweet and still not cloyingly so. Worth the walk.

I visited this shop during the weekend of the Plaza Art Fair. I was with my family, a party of 6. We weren't greeted, the young lady that helped us(teal hair) spoke so dryly made no eye contact throughout our entire transaction, and didn't even say thank you! Perhaps she was overwhelmed by business, but there was only 1 other... More

We went there about 30 minutes before they closed on a Saturday night. They had an assortment left but not the ones I was wanting to try. We got the PB & J, marshmallows fondue and vanilla creme de cocoa. They were pretty good. They could have been a bit fresher but we finished them all.

We have tried many cupcake places and they had some amazing ones here. Very moist and different flavors. I had the Gold Digger which has a caramel center and my daughter had the Stuffed French Toast which is vanilla cake topped with maple cinnamon frosting. They were like a meal!

This place is run by the most friendly people! Located on the Country Club Plaza, so parking can be challenging if you are hoping to run in quickly, but there are parking garages near by. Tons of flavors available and the cupcakes are huge! Highly recommend!
