Marie Antoinette, famous for shipping thousands of cakes to the front doors of her beloved electorate, invented le petit brioche (the cake bite) in between violent rebellions caused by her words. Taste Texas's peacefully reinvented cake bites with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a variety pack of a dozen cake bites in four mouthwatering flavors at Butterfly Cake Bites (an $18 value). Cake bites must be ordered online or over the phone 24 hours in advance and can be picked up free of charge or delivered for an additional fee (call for delivery specifics).
Recently featured in My San Antonio, Butterfly Cake Bites specializes in bite-sized confections of moist cake, frosting, and chocolate in accordance with a large list of combinable flavors. Best friends and co-owners Kristi Cordeau and Eryn Sizemore head San Antonio's exclusive bite-only cakery, and their audacious baking yields cake flavors as bold as the font in a passive-aggressive note on the company refrigerator. Groupon holders can sample Butterfly's four winningest flavors to build their ideal cake-bite coterie. Italian cream blends butter-pecan cake with coconut-pecan frosting before dipping it in white chocolate and a crumbled layer of pecans and coconuts. The triple-chocolate bites literally interpret their own name with chocolate cake, milk-chocolate frosting, and a coating made of more milk chocolate. French-vanilla miniatures inject vanilla cake with a generous dose of French-vanilla extract, while chocolate strawberry pairs strawberry cake with a chocolate coating. Butterfly's staff will gladly accommodate allergies to any of the aforementioned flavors on an individual basis.
Each bite bouquet is made to order, so expect fresh frosting and perfectly squishy cake. Great for edible gifts, one-at-a-time desserts, and sweetening an evening without taking a soothing but hard-to-drain Splenda bath, a variety pack from Butterfly Cake Bites helps you spread baked-good vibes.
Though Butterfly Cake Bites has yet to receive many online reviews, the company was mentioned by CakeSpy and featured by San Antonio Tidbits, and the owners, Kristi Cordeau and Eryn Sizemore, were interviewed by MySanAntonio.com. Three Facebookers give Butterfly Cake Bites a perfect five-star rating.
