Today’s Groupon encourages you to choose your favorite dessert and have it tattooed on your calf. For $6, you get $15 worth of holiday pies and other tasty desserts and foods at San Diego Desserts. San Diego Desserts’ dedication to quality and dominance over the dessert kingdom is deliciously awe-inspiring; the bakery is on a mission to never rest until your day has been blissfully usurped by sweetness and all unhappiness has been overthrown in a military coup of good cheer.

The human body requires a steady stream of sweets in order to maintain physical bliss; this holiday season, save your bliss for anticipating long-lost relatives and cooking big dinners by using today's Groupon to get a tasty holiday pie instead of spending hours baking one from scratch. Explore SDD's pumpkin, apple, coconut cream, banana cream, and pecan pies ($12 to $18); since pies are available first come, first served, it's best to call ahead in advance to reserve your order. For a small holiday party, grab a variety of individual desserts ($4.75 each) or a full-sized cake such as the chocolate decadence or pineapple upside down (starting at $35).

SDD also delivers on sweet-tooth cravings with cookies, cupcakes, tarts, bars, cheesecakes, pastries, and cakes, all made fresh. For those who want to tease their sweet cravings for as long as possible, there’s a full savory menu with luscious egg scrambles, salivation-inducing eggs benedict, sandwiches (chicken club, roasted veggie, and more), lunch and dinner entrees (chicken pot pie, fettuccini, roasted salmon, and more), and salads that make working toward dessert a pleasurable task (dinner and lunch entrees start at $9).

At any age, this shop will make you feel like a bright-eyed child, teenager, or adult eyeing handcrafted sweets behind display glass or savories from your seat in the café, where you're intently gazing on the cooks with your right eye during Sunday brunch, lunch, happy, or dinner.

If the pining faces pressed against the windows of San Diego Desserts aren’t convincing enough, then foodies' blog at ThePlainJane.com and a write-up in the San Diego Reader may convince, along with 4.5 stars from Yelpers:

  • We slowly ate the other three desserts over the weekend, but the baklava was gone in a flash. – food.theplainjane.com.
  • Our group of dessert junkies visited San Diego Desserts yesterday afternoon, and quite thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of desserts available. – Laureen D., Yelp

How Many Cakes Say, “I Love You”?

Cakes make great holiday gifts, but giving your favorite people only one cake apiece just won’t do. Here’s how many cakes you need to give to different people to make their holiday dreams come true:

Grandma, 40 cakes: One for each year of her life, divided by two, multiplied by the number of times you’ve disappointed her by not having children.
Postman, 15 cakes: One for each time you’ve almost called him Paul but stopped because you’re not 100% sure that’s his name.
Office Crush, 1 cake: Undelivered.
Casting Agents, 1 cake each: A single bundt cake is enough to remind agents that you’re still alive and that, despite the accident, you’re still “in Batman shape.”
