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 $15, you get a dozen regular-sized cupcakes (a $30 value) from Charm City Cupcakes's downtown location, open Tuesday–Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The building can be a little tough to find, so pack a compass and follow your nose to the bakery, which is inside Brown's Arcade Mall at the cross streets of Charles and Saratoga.
The skilled pastry chefs at Charm City expertly whip up batches of joy-inducing indulgences on a daily basis. This cute cupcake boutique offers more than 65 varieties of small, tempting treats to suit nearly any occasion, whether you're celebrating a birthday, birth, day, or simply hoping to fill cupcake-sized pockets. When you call to place your order, you'll be able to chat with a cupcake consultant and custom-design a dessert platter to suit your sweet teeth. Choose from flavor favorites including classic chocolate and vanilla, Baltimore Black Bottom, Black-Eyed Susan, and Pimlico, all of which follow fine-tuned recipes of the freshest ingredients, careful mixing, and the giggles of hundreds of babies.
Cupcakes are baked daily to ensure maximum freshness, and then diligently dressed in fancy frosting to stylishly comply with the standard "no shirt, no service" policy. Because Charm City cupcakes are always appropriately accessorized, they provide fail-proof arm-candy companionship for summer backyard barbecues, barhopping, and power lunches with doughnut-based CEOs. Call ahead to place your order.
