Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one dozen cupcakes from Cupcaked in Livermore (a $39 value).
Cupcaked folds locally sourced ingredients into more than 20 rotating flavors of moist and creamy creations in its freshly opened shop. Staples such as classic vanilla and chocolate chocolate satisfy commonplace cravings, and the Purple Velvet cloaks tongues in an updated version of its classic crimson ancestor. The bakery's signature key-lime-pie cupcake delivers a scurvy-curbing dose of lime and a dollop of meringue atop a foundation of crushed graham crackers.
A cast of other uncommon creations includes chai tea iced with ginger-honey butter cream and mint-ganache grasshopper. Grown-up flavors include margarita and Kahlua store-liquor-cabinet concoctions in surreptitious cake cups crowned with creamy frosting froth. Since the lineup of appetite-destroying flavor forces varies daily, Cupcaked encourages customers to place orders one to two days in advance to ensure the availability of their desired selections.
