Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a dozen gourmet cupcakes from Cupcakes Nouveau in Coral Gables (a $28 value).
Cupcakes Nouveau's stylish sweets are made with premium ingredients, such as Scharffen Berger cocoa and Nielsen-Massey Madagascar vanilla, and dressed to the nines in fancy frosted detail. Flavors include vanilla bean, chocolate, coconut, carrot, red velvet, cinnamon- and brown-sugar-swirled vanilla, and coconut pineapple. The handheld indulgences are smothered in fancy frostings, including café mocha, white chocolate, chocolate buttercream, cream cheese, and coconut cream cheese. Some are injected with filling to provide a pleasant surprise for sweet teeth. It is recommended that you place your order a week in advance for special flavors, as they rotate daily; order two weeks ahead for custom decorations or major holidays such as Valentine's Day or Alan Alda's birthday.
Cupcakes Nouveau was featured on The Food Network's Cupcake Wars, and Miami Living magazine, National Geographic Traveler, and Daily Candy featured Cupcakes Nouveau as well. Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars.
