Due to their great popularity, cupcakes are overwhelmed by paparazzi, requiring them to order frosting via private courier and disguise as broccoli before going out in public. Partake of confectionery celebrity with today's Groupon: for $19, you get one dozen cupcakes at Cupcakes By Design (up to a $40 value).
Cupcakes By Design crowns more than 16 varieties of cupcakes with artful swirls of buttercream and icing in its sunlit bakery. Fruit-infused morsels gild tongues with refreshing sweetness, as Cherry Bombs diffuse cherry cake with their namesake fruit filling beneath waves of chocolate frosting and rings of lemon cake encircle a citrus center in the Lemon Tree cupcake. Decadent flavors fill the Bavarian Dreams cupcake, which conjures a paradise of vanilla cream, white cake, and buttercream icing, each carefully seasoned with Wagnerian arias. Cupcakes By Design highly recommends calling in advance of redeeming each Groupon.
Though Cupcakes By Design offers a discounted rate on Wednesdays, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.
Cupcakes By Design
The bright desert sun has barely risen over Phoenix when Sharon Beatty unlocks the door of her shop, smiling as she imagines the colorful cupcakes she is about to bake. The cake-decorator spends the entire morning preparing fresh cupcakes for the day, topping the warm cakes in playful swirls of fudge, buttercream, and cream-cheese frosting. Her imaginative cupcakes were lauded by Az Food Magazine as having "a sweet filling that compliments the cake flavor."
By noon, customers amble in and out of the sunlit shop, ordering salted-caramel, chocolate-peanut-butter-cup, and amaretto cupcakes by the dozens. Sharon also custom designs specialty cakes for all occasions. Shoppers can choose from an elegant, flowery tower to celebrate a wedding or a detailed map of Nebraska to remind them where they buried their collection of half-dollar coins.
