Cupcakes are everything great about full-size cakes but are smaller and come in free wrappers, which look like tiny coffee filters and will make your desk smell like cake for two days. Appreciate the little things with this Groupon.

As a child, Guil Fernandes felt the allure of egg beaters and baking pans as much as toy trucks. Fascinated by cooking, the budding chef would trace his mother's footsteps through the kitchen in hopes of catching glimpses of recipes or being asked to lend a hand.
Guil's inevitable career as a chef would later include formal training and experience at Senac, Algonquin College, and Le Cordon Bleu. He enjoyed successful stints as a wedding planner and teacher (whose baking classes often sold-out) before recently founding his own sweetshop, Delightful Tastes. The modern, 2,200-square-foot bakery teems with his creations, which range from traditional yellowcakes and buttercreams to more unique batter-based brainchildren, such as raspberry-mousse cake, red velvet cake crowned with chocolate shavings, and single-serving confections that include cake pops and house-made chocolates.
Guil insists upon cake purity by banning hydrogenated oils and artificial preservatives from his 100 per cent nut-free bakeshop. Event planners often frequent Delightful Tastes, understandably seduced by the chef's gift for devising elegant one-of-a-kind cakes while performing ventriloquist acts with his pastry bag.
