A Baton Rouge cupcake shop will expand to a second location by September.

Cupcake Allie will take over the former Frosted Cupcakes on Nicholson Drive in the Beau Chene Shopping Center. The new location is set to open after Labor Day, said co-owner Jay Bookman.

“We loved the idea of getting something close to campus,” Bookman said. “It was a good opportunity.”

Bookman said the new location is “bakery-ready,” and won’t need too much renovation. The store will be identical to its predecessor, featuring a menu of savory and sweet cupcakes. However, the new location could feature expanded hours and a late-night food menu.

Bookman and his wife, Allie, opened the first location on Perkins Road in the Acadian Perkins Plaza Shopping Center near Uncle Earl’s in December 2013.
