What You'll Get
Cupcakes, like the baby versions of things, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your nibbling instincts with today's Groupon. For $12, you get a dozen cupcakes or one 6-inch cake from Cupcakeology, located on Carlisle Boulevard (a $25 value). Forty-eight-hour notice is required for six-inch cakes.
Since 2007, Cupcakeology has been working to keep America's miniaturized-dessert technology one step ahead of our enemies. Founded by a mother-daughter duo, the sweet shop continues to push the physical limits of flavor and satisfaction, eschewing pre-made, preservative-laced mixes in favor of fresh ingredients. Taste the figurative fruits of this labor with a dozen cupcakes from Cupcakeology’s rotating menu of flavors, such as the Bit 'o Bubbly with champagne buttercream, the caramel apple topped with chopped walnuts, the cocoa-powdered tiramisu, and of course, the red-chili chocolate (huevos rancheros cupcakes remain a theoretical technology). Flavors are offered on a daily basis, so check the bakery's schedule beforehand to see which flavors will be available to you.
Cupcakeology's 6-inch cakes are just as inventive as their miniaturized cousins, blowing your palate's mind with flavors like Black-Tie Raspberry with gazoodles of ganache, and cookies and cream with Oreo filling.
Serving cupcakes to your guests cuts down on dirty dishes and eliminates the pressure of being the first one to cut into the cake. Instead of making a different cake to suit everyone's tastes, you can get a dozen different flavors for fickle friends, or firmly redefine adulthood with a cupcake-tasting party with a wine pairing for each scrumptious treat. Gone are the obnoxious protestations that a slice of cake is too big. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand, you'll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about blown diets and foreign occupation.
Cupcakeology was tapped for Best Cupcakes in 2008 by the Weekly Alibi and received the title of Best Birthday Cake in Albuquerque in 2009 from Nickelodeon's Parents Connect. Cupcakeology gets 3.5 stars from five Google Maps reviewers, and 76% of Urbanspooners like it:
- With a rotating baking schedule of 32 cake and frosting combos, there’s bound to be un petit gateau that appeals to your sweet tooth. I personally tried a dozen with no regrets. “Monkeybutter” (banana cake topped with butterscotch butter cream) had me swinging from a tree with its moist crumb and lightly flavored icing. – Maren Tarro, Weekly Alibi
- The staff was delightful and recommended their favorites to me the Fluffer Nutter and the Boston Cream Pie. I agree completely with their choices. The boston was my favorite of the two, freaking amazing! –Christopher, Google Maps
- Cupcakeology Cupcakes are GREAT! – Hotrod, Urbanspoon
