Before the cupcake, people could only enjoy cakes that were bite-sized by undergoing a series of mouth expansion surgeries. Reap the benefits of dessert innovation with today's Groupon; for $5, you get $10 worth of cupcakes and frosting from the 3 Girls Cupcakes cupcake van. The 3 Girls van, which runs entirely on children's laughter, travels along a varying treat trail every Tuesday through Friday from approximately 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Treats are known to sell out, so arriving early is recommended.
The staff at 3 Girls Cupcakes serves fresh, handmade cupcakes out of a mobile cupcakery; every day, 10 flavors grace the menu, from the classic red velvet—made with white-chocolate cream-cheese frosting and red candy crystals—to vanilla vanilla ($3 each, tax included), in addition to frosting shots ($1 each, tax included) and cupcake bites, the middles of filled cupcakes in flavors such as vanilla, orange, and chocolate ($2 a bag, tax included). To keep taste buds confused, 3 Girls bakes two special flavors each week; past guest stars have included The Spotted Cow, a chocolate cupcake filled with white-chocolate cream cheese and topped with chocolate-chip buttercream, and the Caramel Apple, made by carefully mixing apple spice cake, vanilla buttercream, and caramel drizzle with a foam finger. Those looking for a frosted fix can also try the frosting shots ($1 each, tax included), which are available in five different flavors and occasionally specialty flavors. Ten percent of 3 Girls Cupcakes' sales are donated to a variety of Kansas City area children's charities. Major credit cards are accepted.
