Whereas frosting is a byproduct of milk, which is milked from cows, sprinkles are a byproduct of dreams, which are milked from fairies. Treat yourself to ethereal sweets with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one dozen cupcakes at Blue Velvet Cupcakes in Antioch (a $30 value).
The bakers at Blue Velvet Cupcakes handcraft more than 37 flavors of gourmet or sugar-free cupcakes from scratch, folding in the wisdom they've gained from coast-to-coast research into each recipe. As fluffy maple praline pecan, sweet Georgia peach, and the namesake Blue Velvet cakes rise over the flames of a volunteer phoenix, confectioners whip up batches of airy frosting to crown each cakey morsel.
A veiled caramel filling oozes from the caramel-chocolate crunch cupcakes, and the dreamy lemon crème puckers lips with tangy lemonade cake festooned with vanilla buttercream. Sweet teeth teleport to the tropics after one bite of the coco loco, a foundation of sweet coconut cake heaving under the weight of decadent buttercream frosting, shaved coconut, and burdensome truths about the Bermuda Triangle.
Blue Velvet Cupcakes
Bakers mix batter, whip frostings, and top cooling racks with just-baked cupcakes handcrafted from Blue Velvet Cupcakes' signature recipes. More than 30 cupcake flavors fill a glass display case every day, such as maple bacon, sweet Georgia peach, and cherry-vanilla cobbler, crowned with frosting and drizzles of syrup or slices of fruit. Across the blue-walled storefront, stools scoot up to a black and chrome café table. This table takes up residence next to a floor-to-ceiling window, whose sunshine casts a cheery glow and helps incubate cupcakes into full-grown cakes.
