So long, chocolate bacon cupcakes. Pam Lambert, owner/baker of A'La Cupcakesclosed down her Glen Rock bakery last weekend.
The space at 36 Glen Avenue didn't hold a public restroom, so it mostly served as a cupcake baking and distribution center. The resurgence of Heavenly Treats across the street likely did not help matters.
Lambert's cupcakes, however, were lauded for being inventive, fresh and made with all-natural ingredients. Most orders were picked up on site or delivered to customers.
On Facebook, Lambert thanked her customers for their support over the years and gave no indication her baking career was over.
"Building and growing A'La Cupcakes was one of the best parts of my life," she wrote. "It was important for me to build a company on love, trust, community support, and quality. I believe all of those components helped us grow these past four years. And although we have closed our Glen Rock location - the reaction and support has proved to me that we accomplished what I set out to do. Thank you again and I will keep this paged updated on how to find us.
Lambert did not return a request for comment.
