Long renowned as the appropriate vessels for doling out a personalized amount of water, mead, or anti-venom, cups have also become popular vehicles for moist, flavorful cakes. Today's Groupon lets your cup runneth over with sweet fixings: for $69, you get a custom-designed DIY cupcake cake package from The Baltimore Cupcake Company (up to a $179 value). Your DIY cupcake cake package includes the following:
- Three-tier cupcake stand
- One cupcake parasol
- Five cupcake pennants
- 24 mini-cupcake cups
- Chocolate truffle cupcake recipe
- Shipping to any location in the continental U.S.
Bury your sweet teeth in personal-sized treats, courtesy of your own kitchen and the award-winning chocolate truffle cupcake recipe and designing implements of The Baltimore Cupcake Company. Each towering confectionary kit is available in seven themed designs: birthday (boy or girl), holiday/Christmas, baby shower (girl or boy), bridal shower, New Year's, Valentine's Day, and Thanksgiving. You can also apply this Groupon's value for $175 toward your own custom theme.
Serving cakes in cupped form eliminates the obnoxious protestations of guests who insist that their slice of cake is too big. Cupcakes will also save you the trouble and waste of baking one full-sized cake for each person at your next party—while the free shipping, complimentary gift tag, and message make it easier than ever to send sweet seasonal greetings to absent loved ones, or to wish a happy belated birthday to a very special second head.
Baltimore Magazine named The Baltimore Cupcake Company the best cupcakes of 2008 feature, saying:
- [The Baltimore Cupcake Company] is our go-to place for a tiny taste of sweet goodness…The moist, tender cakes are topped with a generous swirl of icing in a variety of flavors. But nothing says party time like the pure joy of a rich chocolate cake with butter-cream frosting and confetti sprinkles. – Baltimore Magazine
