A mall kiosk could work but it needs to be a mall with lots of activity a la Menlo /Freehold.
I guess you are looking to sell the cupcakes and not really have it as a destination hang out like a cafe? If I understand it correctly then a "happening " mall could serve you well.

There was a bakery that was selling cupcakes at a Cherry Hill mall kiosk.
It is not there anymore after a few months....

Out of the malls that were mentioned, Freehold Mall might work since there is a sitting area right around the fountain near Starbucks.

Seems like you would have to sell so many cupcakes just to cover your overhead.

First, how good are your cupcakes really?

Second, are you based out of central NJ area. I was thinking of getting into this with my gf at the time about 8 months ago. Good thing we didn't, but if you want to discuss the business/location factor further, shoot me a message.

I just heard the other day that C'mere Cupcake is now closed. I guess the second owner didn't do too well either.

Personally,I think you would be getting in on the tail end of a fad.

However, I've seen these cupcake shops in many cities, and they tend to be in upscale shopping/restaurant districts within walking distance of colleges or "young professional" housing.
