Original story below
CINCINNATI -- Yum! Gourmet Cupcakes have closed their doors on Isabella Ave. in Oakley, but they aren't closed for business.
Yum! Cupcakes held their grand opening in 2011 and have already closed their brick and mortar doors. Passers-by in Oakley wonder, "where have all the cupcakes gone?"
The small and delicious cupcake bakery, owned by Peggie Bailey, have not disclosed if there will be a new location, but have made it known that they are still baking their one-of-a-kind desserts for pick up or delivery.
What seems like a change in the business model, it's possible that they will bake out of a facility and sell to local business'. After multiple attempts to reach the company, WCPO never heard back from them, but a message on their Facebook page gave us a clue.
A Facebook user asked where they were located now that their Oakley location was closed. Yum responded with the below:
"Thanks so much for contacting us. Yum! is now baking at a new facility and will be offering our cupcakes for purchase at all Mama Mimi's locations very soon! You may also place an order by calling Yum at 351-9866. We'll call you back and take your order, arranging for delivery or pick-up at that time."
