Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cupcakes, full cakes, and other baked goods at Cakes by Karen, with locations in Northglenn, Lakewood, Aurora, and Denver.
Cakes by Karen floats a fleet of celebratory sweets for all occasions in 15 flavors that can be topped and stuffed with a multitude of frosting varieties and fillings. Standby selections such as chocolate, yellow, and spice mingle with contemporary confectioneries such as poppy seed, confetti, champagne, and red velvet, available as full-blown plate-fillers or dainty cupcakes ($1.50–$4). Prevent cakes from catching colds by smothering them in one of six frosting jackets, such as buttercream or chocolate cream cheese, or pack delicacies’ empty insides with a stuffer such as bavarian cream, cherry, or strawberry banana. Five torte incarnations are also on deck to satisfy beret-sporting Europhile teeth, including french mocha and crème de mint.
While cupcakes are appropriate for afternoon luncheons or late-night sponge baths, full-size cakes can keep hordes of hungry partygoers from eating their tablecloths as dessert. Ready-made cakes are available at all locations, photo cakes can be made from your own 8"x10" image, and three styles of wedding cake aid in matrimonial merrymaking ($159–$1,550). Cakes by Karen will deliver and set up its baked beauties of 75 servings or more free of charge inside the Denver metro area.
