Like clouds on a mountaintop, frosting gives cupcakes an atmosphere of whimsy and conceals the yeti populating their peaks. Uncover sugary new realms with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a dozen specialty single-flavor cupcakes at BabyCakes2Go, in Perrysburg (a $25 value).
BabyCakes2Go’s founder and baker Abbie Rae Mahr mines her sugary imagination and customer tastes to craft new flavors daily. Dozens of gourmet varieties, each topped with the shop’s signature whipped frosting, vie for the attention of customers that stride through Abbie’s door. Tickle the cocoa section of the tongue with a rich, dark-chocolate ganache cupcake. The salted caramel sprinkles sea salt atop a cake of caramel batter and caramel whipped frosting for a palate-challenging flavor blend. Customers can sample seasonal varieties or charge Abbie with creating a new flavor based on favorite desserts, cocktails, or particularly beloved pieces of Roseanne fan fiction. BabyCakes’ 12 confections will all travel home in decorative pink boxes, festooned with ribbons; delivery is available for an additional fee.
At Babycakes2go, the baker tends to tiny cakes in dozens of flavors, including chocolate-covered pretzel, chocolate-covered bacon, or chai-latte concoctions topped with a swirl of nutmeg whipped frosting. In addition to ready-to-go treats, a cakeologists can also layer their signature cakes, fillings, and frostings in deliciously down-home Babycakes2go jars, a quaint mason jar brimming with a sundae-like amalgamation meant to be enjoyed via spoons or old-fashioned country chopsticks. Orders are placed by phone and can be picked up at O-Deer Diner and Ice Cream Shop, or can be delivered.
