A perfectly plumped cupcake trimmed with a sweetly swooped frosting lid is a lovely loaf, perfect for parties, weddings, and staring-contest victory celebrations. This Groupon gets you four of them for $5 at Sweet Pockets, which is proud to call itself Atlanta’s first shop devoted to the dainty dessert.

At Sweet Pockets, you’ll find an array of creative cakefections. Try the fresh-squeezed Lemon Sunshine, or Southern classic Red Velvet. Vegans will appreciate the Vegan Midnight: a soy, dairy, and egg-free minimound of rich, chocolatey delight available on Fridays and Saturdays. All the icing-topped treats are baked from scratch each morning by owner Lennie King, a former architect who swapped blueprints for blenders in 2006.

Palm-sized cakes are the tastiest way to remedy bad days, send a sweet message, or indulge in a portion-appropriate way.

Reviews

Sweet Pockets was voted Creative Loafing's Critics' Pick for Best Cupcakes. The Knot Georgia and AirTran magazine featured the cupcake haven. Yelpers give the sugar shack four stars:

  • For those whose biggest restriction is guilt, some shops are off ering [sic] a cupcake's answer to the donut hole. Th ese [sic] bite-sized versions-dubbed "minis" at Atlanta's Sweet Pockets (www.sweet-pockets.com)-are a fun way to experiment. – Debra Shigley, AirTran magazine
  • They’re almost too cute to eat. Almost. – Creative Loafing

Cupcakes: How to Stop Them

Cupcakes are increasingly replacing full-sized cakes as America's favorite cake treat—a fact that has not escaped the powerful Cake Lobby. The Cake Lobby, representing the interests of the country's traditional-cake bakers, has taken the following steps to combat the rise of cupcakes:

  • Delivers one free full-sized cake to every home each Thursday
  • Released a cloud of specially bred and trained day-bats to dive-bomb cupcake-eaters in public places
  • Mailed every house the helpful pamphlet How Cupcakes Caused The Economic Crises of 1929 and Today
