Cutting wheat or dairy products out of your life is difficult, especially since most sofas are made of 50% whole wheat and most shampoos are just gooey milk. Go against the grain with this Groupon.

Violet's Cakes

The bakers of this modern cake shop—named 1 of Martha Stewart's 10 favorite cupcake bakeries—decorate elaborate cakes, cupcakes, and cake pops with bright icing. In their open-air kitchen, they weave together quality ingredients, such as Callebaut chocolates, Valrhona cocoa, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, and sugar imported from Gum Drop Mountain. They schedule a set number of flavors for each day, juxtaposing classic flavors with eclectic concoctions, such as french toast, peach cobbler, and Martha Stewart's favorite, cherry pie.

After baking tasty canvases, bakers decorate the cakes with swirls of delicious buttercream or cream-cheese frosting. They can also transform pastry and frosting into custom designs, such as a turntable, piles of books, or a Barbie doll to celebrate a special occasion or conceal sweets from greedy party guests. The rich, smooth icing is so photogenic that no wedding cake ever needs to wear fondant cover-up.


peanut butter frosting was not too sweet with my first bite. Later, i was surprised with the Jelly filling inside the cupcake. It was a great cupcake

the cupcakes (while rather rustic looking) are gorgeous sitting in the display case. Really, they are sooooo purdy sitting there all nicely lined up
