Dessert-shrinking technology gave us the cupcake, the baked Rhode Island, and the gingerbread studio apartment. Nibble a little with this Groupon.

Sugar Rush Baking Company
From the vantage point of Sugar Rush Baking Company's lengthy dessert and coffee bar, visitors can catch a glimpse of the busy kitchen staff as they craft cakes, cookies, scones, and brownies throughout the day. This bakery team works with a dedication to homestyle techniques, decorating custom-layered cakes by hand and accentuating them with frosting flowers plucked fresh from the candy garden. The shop specializes in miniature cupcakes, and with more than two dozen signature flavors including chocolate cake with mint-buttercream frosting, the team has been forced to create an entire separate menu for the tiny candle cushions.
