Without the promise of sweets, mouths would never have the patience to stay open during dentist's appointments or closed during beekeeping demonstrations. Keep mouths copacetic with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of cakes, cupcakes, and baked goods from Choco Dela Bakery.
Choco Dela Bakery’s adroit pastry chef Brigitte Kirady delights sweet teeth with a multifarious array of fresh, made-to-order desserts whipped up from scratch at her in-home bakery. Tongue buds lose themselves in sugar-laced slivers of the Black Forest cake ($35), and the pina colada specialty cheesecake ($45) gives teeth an excuse to dust off their molar-sized hula skirts. Adventurous patrons can also opt to nibble through a chai tea cheesecake ($40) that affords eaters the gustatory glee of an aromatic cup of spiced tea without the fear of a burned tongue or over-steamed eyebrows. Icing-crowned cupcakes (starting at $2 per cupcake, with a minimum order of two dozen cupcakes) please palates in a plethora of flavours including a pink champagne cupcake with raspberry cream, perfect for toasting hard-working stomachs. Treat-getters can also apply this Groupon to a custom wedding cake ($3.50 per serving, minimum cost of $175), to celebrate nuptials or to give knot-tiers hands-on practice for reception cake-slinging. Once ordered by phone, Choco Dela delivers the decadent cargo (charge varies by location; delivery to Ottawa is $20) to awaiting doorsteps, giving homeowners the chance to rest before partaking in sweet feeding frenzies.
