After effortless victories in the 100-yard dash and men's hurdling, the gingerbread man met an untimely fate in the aquatic portion of the Iron Man competition. Celebrate the taste of non-aquatic triumph with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sweet treats at Sweet Bakery Baltimore.
Situated in historic Mt. Vernon, Sweet Bakery Baltimore bakes up daily delights of sweet-tooth satiation, seen in the city’s finest hotels and on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. Piping-hot sweet-treat selections include the perennial favorite morning buns—croissant dough rolled in cinnamon and sugar and baked in a muffin cup, similar to the process of primping beauty-pageant contestants ($2.75). Nearly 20 varieties of pie assemble for duty in a spectrum of fruit flavors, including apple crumb ($17.95), pumpkin ($17.95), strawberry rhubarb ($20.95), and blackberry peach ($20.95). Or sample the selection of croissants, served traditionally ($2), glazed in chocolate ($2.25), or pinned together with toothpicks to resemble the Arc de Triomphe. Meanwhile, simple and dressy cupcakes ($2–$2.50) jostle for shelf space beside classic sugar-purveyors such as cookies ($0.60 each, or two for $1), muffins ($2.75), and danishes ($2).
Amazing cakes! Gorgeous design - completely custom, so delicious. The staff are very sweet and accommodating. Love Sweet Bakery!Christine, WeddingWire, 6/4/11
