If you have trouble deciding among flavors, it would be wise to visit Main Street Cupcakes sooner rather than later: their cupcake list is more than 350 strong, and getting longer all the time. Luckily, only a dozen or two of those inventive varieties grace the bakery case each day, condensing the choices to include their four classics?red velvet, wedding day white, classic vanilla, and classic chocolate?plus a smattering of unique flavors that might include champagne and raspberries, gingerbread latte, or salted watermelon. For those who can?t get enough of these sweet creations, cupcake towers let you bring home a mountain of sugary bliss, and in-store parties let you decorate cupcakes with your favorite toppings or the name of your least favorite dentist.
Every day, Breadsmith kneads and breeds made-from-scratch breads, honoring the practices of centuries-old French bakers. The delectable dough sculptures receive the royal treatment, with all delicate yeast bubbles bursting inside of a 6-ton stone-hearth oven. The oven's sweltering heat creates a cushy crust for American-style breads. In the presence of lightning-quick steam injections, European-style breads take on a crisp, crumb-dressed outer core. Daily bread offerings range from baguettes to sourdoughs to specialty loaves. Use today's Groupon to fill up the family with lusciously leavened loaves fresh from the oven—or wait for them to go stale and then wield them as harpoons during the next potato-soup hunt.
CorsageCakes and Things' selection of freshly prepared gourmet cupcakes tantalizes taste buds with sweet, soft cake bottoms and creamy frosting tops. The cupcakes come in a choice of six flavors that include time-honored favorites such as chocolate, lemon, and yellow cake with buttercream frosting as well as red velvet, carrot cake, and banana with cream-cheese frosting. The thick braids of cream twist across each cupcake top in lavish decorative swirls, which, like a poodle wearing a powdered wig, provide a sophisticated counterpoint to the simple fluffiness beneath. After selecting a flavor, cake-cravers place their order and then wait a pastry-less 24 hours before picking up their box of 12 freshly constructed confections.
