While most cups are capable of holding liquids, only the best are capable of growing cake. Today's Groupon gets you $15 worth of cup-spawned cakes and pastry concoctions at Cupcake Lane Bakery for $6. Savor the fresh-bakedness of handmade cupcakes and cupcake cakes that complement any youth darts championship.
Cupcake Lane Bakery treats foodies with handcrafted, iced, cakey delicacies that bend the most serious of lips into sunshine smiles. Individual cupcakes cost $2.50 each and span the flavor spectrum, from the cinnamon seas of the Sunrise Mountain cupcake to red-velvet Savannah Street, espresso-tinted Pike Place cake with caramel latte buttercream, Park Avenue carrot cake, and more. For those who like their sweets to believe in teamwork, the bakery forges cupcake cakes out of several cupcakes, simultaneously defeating the purpose of being a cupcake and being totally awesome. Circular tops come together to craft a variety of enticing cake shapes such as butterflies, footballs, and rectangles ($33 for a 12-cupcake cake).
Cupcakes offer a dollop of sweetness that is all too often missing from today's world of fighting video games set on minor-league baseball-team buses and police dramas featuring Brian Dennehy as the tough cop who doesn't believe in wearing a shirt with a collar. Bring a friend and share some mini sweet treats to spread cupcake joy, making that friend feel forever indebted to you.
The Vegas Musings blogger is stopping at every cupcake shop in Vegas; at Cupcake Lane Bakery she tried the red velvet and the chocolate:
- Both cupcakes were excellent. The frosting wasn’t overly sweet, and the cake was nice and moist in both, although not very dense. This was probably the most light and airy cake out of them all. – Vegas Musings
- This bakery is the best one in the city. You walk in, and it just feels like home. The cupcakes are so delicious; they'll melt in your mouth. – row2row, Citysearch
- I happened upon Cupcake Lane a couple of weeks ago and gone back several times since. Their cupcakes are, hands down, the best I've ever tasted. The frosting is the key; rich, smooth, and flavorful. The cake is moist. Try my favorites, the Lombard and the Savannah. Can't get enough. – braunram, Citysearch
