For families of 11, buying a dozen miniature cheesecakes will result in one leftover, which can be used as a paperweight or tambourine. Today's Groupon sweetens the sharing: for $15, you get a dozen original, strawberry, chocolate, or cookies 'n' cream miniature cheesecakes from Capital City Cheesecake in Takoma Park. Capital City is closed on Mondays.
The bakers at the sister-owned cheesecakery use fresh ingredients to create creamy, handmade confections. This Groupon is good for 12 two-inch microcakes, and you can mix and match among the original flavor, chocolate, strawberry, and cookies 'n' cream to assemble a delicious dozen. The bite-sized baked goods are perfectly portioned to prevent guilt-induced post-cheesecake regret, and as such make a fitting gift for calorie-counting suckers for sweet or someone who underwent a surgical procedure that replaced his or her human mouth with the mouth of a striped bass.
The bi-level bakery boasts a clean and comfortable sweet-snacking environment, with a sun-flooded eating area of bright white walls and cherry wood floors. Although the friendly space is designed to accommodate mighty marathons of cheesecake mastication, you can also linger over the lovely little treats at home.
Call 24 hours in advance to place your order.
