Rolling cake into a sphere doesn't just make it easier to eat—it also makes it easier to frost with images of the continents without the distorting effects of the Mercator projection. Humble Greenland with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a dozen cake balls and a dozen chocolate-covered strawberries at Cake Towne in Fort Thomas, KY (a $34.50 value).
Cake Towne's pastry barons heap frosting and chocolate onto fresh, never-frozen treats. The shop's truffle-esque cake balls, chocolate-dipped mixtures of cake and frosting, dress themselves in flavors both traditional and surprising, from salted caramel and chocolate raspberry to spicy carrot. Once coated, the treats go for a dip in rivers of dark, white, or milk chocolate. Stick candles into each of these dozen pastry spheres (a $10.50 value) to create a birthday cake befitting a juggler turning a multiple of 12. A dozen chocolate-covered strawberries (a $24 value) delight taste buds and add a racy edge to oft-wholesome fruit. Free WiFi wafts throughout the shop, allowing patrons to use their sticky fingers to look up how to clean frosting off a keyboard.
