All of life's important moments are marked by one of three things: eating a cake, passing a torch, or signing on the bottom line of a clown-college certificate. Embrace edible celebration with today's deal: for $18, you get one Ooey Gooey cake from Southern Sweet Potato Pie Company in Marrero (a $36 value).
Southern Sweet Potato Pie Company specializes in creating authentic, freshly baked New Orleans desserts made with all-natural ingredients and steeped in old family recipes and Deep South flavors. Surprise your taste buds and their sweet teeth frenemies with the Ooey Gooey cake, an 8"x11.5" two-layered palate-approving confection. The bottom layer is a bastion of buttery yellow cake, smoothed with a top layer of decadent cream cheese and powdered sugar, and filled with a middle layer of flirtatious yet chaste demeanor. The cake is frozen to maintain its quality and can be easily thawed before serving.
While not included in today's Groupon, the Big Easy sweetery carries a number of southern-tinged treats from its fan-favorite pies to almond-poppyseed cake ($42 for 48 oz.), southerned-up pound cake ($36 for 48 oz.), and bourbon-pecan cake ($50 for 48 oz.), which is the result of the tree nut going on an all-night whiskey bender and then compiling its experiences into a delicious dessert diary.
