All of life's important moments are marked by one of three things: eating a cake, passing a torch, or signing on the bottom line of a clown-college certificate. Embrace edible celebration with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods at Baked By Betsy in Park Ridge.
Using recipes transported from her grandmother's rural kitchen, Baked by Betsy owner Betsy D'Attomo whips up fresh, homemade sweet breads and muffins, cakes and cupcakes, pies, cookies, and more. Like Ray Romano–shaped ice sculptures, Betsy's famous butter melts, bite-size cookies drizzled with powdered-sugar icing ($4 for a dozen), thaw when under the heat of a human tongue.
A special-occasion cake, offered in chocolate, yellow, marble, lemon, carrot-cake, and red-velvet varieties with a choice of vanilla, chocolate, lemon-whipped, or cream-cheese frosting (starting at $24.50), can be used to celebrate a birthday, and a cupcake (starting at $1.85) rewards smaller accomplishments. Betsy's breads and muffins have been known to exist in pumpkin-pecan, zucchini, banana-walnut, and lemon poppy-seed forms (muffins $1.75 each, sweet breads $6.50 each); a dozen or more cookie varieties and six brownie varieties are offered daily.
