Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carnivoral instincts with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a dozen upscale cupcakes from Cupcakes Gourmet, a $36 value. You can redeem at either the Malvern or Wayne location.
In order to avoid universe-collapsing paradoxes, Cupcakes Gourmet uses only the finest ingredients, including Madagascar bourbon vanilla, Belgian dark chocolate, sweet-cream butter, organic milk, extra-virgin olive oil, and premium double-wet water to fashion its delectable miniature cake breeds. Cupcakes Gourmet's flavors change with the seasons—the carrot cake drifting from the trees while the chocolate vanilla snows down only to melt away and sprout anew as the zesty lime. When the sun is strongest, café mocha and coconut varietals ripen on the vine. Yearlong stalwarts include the chocolate vanilla, stoplight-bright red velvet, and lovely lemon. Cupcakes Gourmet also spouts out ganache noshers such as the triple chocolate, black and white, and double dark chocolate.
Cupcakes Gourmet was named in both Philadelphia’s and MainLine Today’s Best Of 2008 issues. Like any good rags-to-cupcakes story, Cupcakes Gourmet started out as a two-woman, one-oven operation that rose to prominence on the quality of its caked goods and its reputation for community spirit after it saved the entire city from flooding by erecting improvised levees of peanut-butter and cinnamon-spiked cakebricks.
