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 $12, you get a dozen cupcakes at Couture Cakes of Greenville (a $25 value).
Couture Cakes uses family recipes to sweeten special occasions with individually designed confections catered to its customers' imaginations. Creative consumers communicate the kind of cupcake they would like by mixing one of 19 flavors, 15 fillings, and 13 icings. Couture Cakes' culinary wizards then conjure these selections into customers' dream desserts. Unlock sweetness safes with a combination of chocolate buttercream-filled marble cupcakes, iced with almond buttercream, or orange buttercream-packed strawberry cupcakes, topped with fudge.
Premium flavors are available for an additional fee to gild cakes with cuisine couture such as red-velvet cake, fresh strawberry filling, and Fabergé-inspired sprinkles. The company limits the number of orders it makes per day to ensure the consistent quality of its crafts and to free up ovens for gigs moonlighting as shoe saunas. Cupcakes must be ordered by phone before being picked up to ensure their quality and completion.
