cupcake taste test | 5-city hit list | overland park, olathe, leawood, lenexa, prairie village | kansas

I’m partnering with my blog friends over at Cupcake Crusaders in a little cupcake countdown that celebrates the best sweets in each of our respective areas.

Next month, I’ll be hosting a series of blog posts from Stacy, Jenn and Elisa detailing the trio’s top five favorite cupcakes in the city of Baltimore. I’ve never been to the city (beyond the airport), so I’m anxious to see what cupcake shops of the many the ladies have reviewed so far on the blog make their top-five list to share with us.

In addition to the Cupcake Crusaders offering their top five favorite cupcakeries for my readers to salivate over, I’ll be sharing my top five favorite sweets shops on their blog.

For my series, I’m focusing on my favorite cupcakeries in the Kansas City, Kansas, suburbs, with a focus on Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood, Lenexa and Prairie Village. The Cupcake Crusaders and I decided to be very specific in what shops we’re including in our roundups, and it made more sense to focus on a certain ZIP code or set of suburbs.

(In a few more months, we’ll do another countdown where the Crusaders include Baltimore metro area/suburb cupcakeries, and I’ll focus on Kansas City proper cupcakes.)

Which cupcakeries do you think deserve to get a shout-out during this cupcake countdown? What shops should we tell the Baltimore area to take note of here in the prairie land?

I’ve already got my running list — with a few more shops to try this weekend. Tell me about the cupcakeries you love in Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood, Lenexa and Prairie Village so I don’t forget to cross them off my list!
