Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one-dozen cupcakes at Tiny Temptations Gourmet Cupcakes (a $30 value).
Tiny Temptations' charming boutique of gourmet confections churns out made-from-scratch cupcakes as well as custom-made cakes for special events or a simple sweet treat. Led by a tag-team duo of sisters-in-law, the staff imagine up a range of unforgettable creations crafted by their keen eyes for detail, savoury spirits, and flour-filled fingertips. Squash a sugar fix with 12 hand-held cakes made in a multitude of taste-bud hugging flavours, such as red velvet, blanketed with vanilla-cream-cheese frosting over a cocoa cake; chocolate mint, crowned in a luscious mint frosting swaddling premium cocoa cake; or lemon coconut, a classic coconut cake revamped with a hint of lemon and slathered in vanilla-cream-cheese frosting.
Like quintuplets, each gourmet delicacy is infused with homemade goodness, all-natural ingredients, and whipped up in small batches. Customers can ogle rows of gourmet treats pop against the jet-black shelves, and the pretty-in-pink walls and vibrant blue accents create a modern, elegant atmosphere.
