“We make birthday parties easy, so it’s less work for the parents and more fun for the kids,” Harris said in a statement.

The first Cupcakin opened at 2311 E. 12th St. in 2015. It’s also done pop-up locations previously in the Oak Park Mall and Country Club Plaza.

For Crown Center, Harris said the bakery will feature a ballerina pink floor.

“Our biggest focus is on catering to families and children, and Crown Center is so family oriented,” Harris said. “This is a great spot for us.”

Hours will be Sundays from noon to 5 p.m., and Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
