After , downtown Highland Park's has shuttered its doors.
The upscale cupcake shop had "specialized in extra-large cupcakes with multiple fillings such as the strawberry lemonade that features lemon cake with strawberry butter cream. The shop will also stock standard-sized cupcakes, tiny “wee cakes,” whoopee pies and cake pops."
Highland Park Patch is asking for the community's reaction on Facebook or in the comments below.
So far one reader, Gordy Kenmuir, has shared his thoughts:
"Honestly I think the whole cupcake fad was over-rated anyway, though in a high end town like HP one would have thought it might last longer. I do wonder though, given that Highland Park might tend towards a generally older demographic, if cupcakes were the right thing?"
