Cupcakes are the result of a cake-husbandry program to breed miniaturized desserts suitable for small urban apartments. Devour delicate delectables with today's Groupon: for $13, you get one dozen gourmet cupcakes at Caramanda's Bake Shoppe's Boston Road location, across from Millpond Center (a $27.60 value).
Steve and Melissa Henderson, the founders of Caramanda's, reject an undistinguished record as a Jack and a Jill of all baked trades in order to master the creation of soft, moist gourmet cakes in a panoply of flavors, fillings, and frostings. The rich lemon cream, replete with sweetly tart buttercream, stands in citrus solidarity with orange cake and vanilla frosting, each vying for taste-bud time like two zesty reality-show contestants. Cocoaphiles can sate their urges with the double chocolate or blast them into fulfillment with the chocolate explosion, which is draped in even more luscious chocolate drizzle.
Caramanda's Bake Shoppe
Caramanda's skilled bakers can whip up freshly baked cupcakes in maple pecan and caramel banana cream or sumptuous butterscotch and peanut butter chunk cookies for carryout. The bakery also employs skilled 3D cake-makers, who can morph fondant into a dragon for a birthday, or create a pair of wearable cake gloves for an upcoming boxing match.
