The Icing on the Cake

Hurry!  If you haven't been to Kirby's Kupcakes, get to it!

Kirby and Lisa have a fun concept that's sure to find its niche and flourish in downtown Rogers.  Their cupcakes ($2.50 for a generously frosted, diet-defying treat) are outstanding.  They'll let you grab one from the display case if you like your frosting a little crunchy, or they'll swoop into the back with your chosen cupcake and frost it with a flourish if soft and creamy frosting is your thing.  I love this little nod to individual taste - it shows the thoughtfulness they put into all that they do.

I recently descended upon both ladies near closing time on a slow day with a gaggle of girls pre-sleepover, and Kirby and Lisa set up a little "frost and decorate your own" station for them.  The girls, as seven year olds are prone to do with frosting, had a blast.  Kirby's will be the perfect spot for a unique birthday party, and they have some creative tricks up their sleeves.

They are also serving some unique, homemade lunch treats - check out their menu at or swing by during the work day for something a little different.  Their fun pink boxes make picking up a dozen mini or regular cupcakes to deliver to a friend or bring to work an especially fun treat.

It's up to all of us to support our downtown businesses and help them thrive - that's what makes downtown Rogers all that we hope it can be!  Swing by to say hello to Kirby and Lisa at the corner of 2nd Street near the Rogers Little Theater, Chicago Dog, the Daisy Airgun Museum and M.D. Bishop & Sons Candy in historic downtown Rogers.

And, be sure to connect with Kirby's Kupcakes on Facebook and Twitter!  Plus, dollar cupcake day when they reach 300 Facebook likes - send them some love!
