Dinner without dessert is like a foreign movie without subtitles—you can digest both, but you’ll probably miss out on the good parts. Fast-forward to tasty endings with today’s Groupon to Bake For You on State Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get one dozen cupcakes (a $30 value).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of baked sweets.<p>
Bake For You’s confectionery magicians mix together organic sugar and flour, free-range eggs, and creamy Vermont butter to conjure forth a daily menu of cupcakes, cookies, scones, and other decadent desserts. Made-to-order and filled with coconut and chunks of pineapple, carrot-cake cupcakes hide from prowling bunnies under thick swirls of cream-cheese icing. The oven light never sets on Earl Grey brownies ($27/dozen), which honor their queen with a crown of powdered sugar and impeccably polite chocolate flavors. Oatmeal-cranberry cookies ($18/dozen) harbor just enough bite to deter potential sweet-treat snatchers, and crispy scone sextets ($15) blend butter, cream, and flour with in-season fruits or savory cheddar and thyme.
