Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a baker's dozen including 12 white or chocolate cupcakes and one flavored cupcake at Bake My Day (a $16.75 value).
Joan Mitchell, owner of Bake My Day, has been topping diminutive cakes with creamy ripples of dulcet frosting for more than 30 years. Customers compose a dozen by drawing upon any combination of almond-flavored white cupcakes and devil’s food chocolate cupcakes that delight party guests or lure them back out from under the futon. Aromas drift from the warm depths of the bakery's oven, tickling nostrils with flavors such as red velvet and chocolate rum. Like the dreams of a still-life painter, lemon and key-lime confections launch tart expeditions across taste buds.
