Hmm...This setup looks vaguely familiar and makes me feel somewhat nostalgic...

S'mores cupcakes are a favorite. I have seen them in many ways, but I really like the toasted marshmallows on top. Photo by Yeasaris.

The Kansas City Renaissance Festival is set for its 2nd Annual Cupcake Battle the last weekend of September. Last year, I was lucky enough to be one of the judges and this was by far the largest and best cupcake contest I have ever participated in. Do yourself a favor and sign up to compete, but bring your A game because the quality of entrants last year was amazing. Judging is based on taste, texture, decoration and theme. It's a great deal and a lot of fun!
Here is their call on FB:

We appreciate your continued support and wish you all the very best;).
Please come see us on or before Saturday to get your final fix!"
The store had only been open for 1.5 years and specialized in decadent flavor/name combinations and specialty diet cupcakes. The store was very attractive, with creative and professional window and interior displays, but it was off the beaten path in the Zona Rosa shopping center where it was based. I myself have reviewed it a couple of times for this blog, but unfortunately, more often than not found the cupcakes themselves disappointing and overpriced. They had also competed at this year's Sugar Rush, the premiere local sweets competition in February in Kansas City. Perhaps that was a last ditch effort to garner recognition that would bring in customers or maybe just a last hurrah.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from their FB page:
No reason for the closure was given. Seems the devil was in the details in the end...
