Though less devastating than banana-cream pies, cupcakes still provide effective suppressive fire during fancy dinner-party food fights attended by Larry, Curly, and/or Moe. Today’s Groupon lets you lock and load with this smile-inducing ammunition: for $20, you get $40 worth of cupcakes and other sweets from CakeLove, which the Express recently chose as the Best Bakery of 2009. Choose from CakeLove’s six locations in the DC-Metro area:

CakeLove’s baking staff, led by owner and Food Network’s Sugar Rush host Warren Brown, specializes in cupcakes and cakes, baking batches from scratch daily with fresh, natural butter, sugar, eggs, and more. Each location’s rotating selection of vanilla, chocolate, red-velvet, banana, carrot, and pumpkin cake bases is smothered with a variety of flavored buttercreams. Chocoholics can silence grumbling sweet tooths with creative concoctions like Cynthia’s sin (chocolate cake dipped in chocolate ganache, topped with peanut butter buttercream, drizzled with chocolate and caramel, and sprinkled with candied peanuts), while those longing for a tropical getaway can abduct their tongue to a farflung locale with the lime on the coconut (shredded coconut and lime zest on a vanilla cupcake with lime buttercream). Cupcakes are $3.25 each,
 $19.50 for a half dozen,
 and $39 for a baker’s dozen. Other sweet forms of gourmet baked goods ($2–$5), as well as the bakery’s six-inch to 12-inch layer cakes ($25–$130), can sugary-up birthdays or candy-coat a van full of Shriner cars.

A much-acclaimed baked-from-scratchery, each CakeLove location welcomes sweet savorers into a modern, yet casual space and allows treatmongers to catch an eyeful of baking action. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand and mouth, you’ll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about blown diets and foreign occupation.

Not valid for Love Café on U Street, online orders, or baking classes.
