Happy Cakes, 3434 West 32nd Avenue, offers up a dizzying array of cupcake flavors, parsed out in daily specials that rotate all week long. If you want to find out whether maple bacon or Jack and Coke is on the list before you make the drive to Highland, the bakery has you covered: It just launched an iPhone app that keeps you up to date on the offerings.
The app, which is free at the iTunes store, updates the daily specials, complete with prices. It also gives fingertip access to contact info, location and shop hours.
Happy Cakes has plans for future upgrades, too. "It will eventually include additional items on the menu that change more seasonally," says Stacey Walker, the front-end manager. "Things like our cookes, bars, whoopie pies and macaroons."
We'd probably use that app to call in an order as we head to the shop -- especially as the madness of the holiday season sets in and we load up on treats for parties. For more information, dial 303-477-3556.
