Cupcakes, like all baby versions of things, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal instincts with today's deal. For $5, you get one dozen mini-cupcakes (a $10 value) from Cupprimo Cupcakery. Groupon customers must place their orders at least 24 hours in advance before picking up their pint-sized pastries.
Cupprimo carries over 20 species of trophy treats, with a cupcake menu that rotates daily alongside an anchoring lineup of regulars such as the signature Primo Vanilla and guilt-free red velvet. Depending on the day, though, you may also indulge in snickerdoodle, lemonberry, brownie sundae, caramel butterscotch, and Chocolate Elvis. The cupcakery makes its mini-cupcakes completely from scratch—the delicious, prescience-enhancing substance found only on Planet Arrakis—and bakes them using an easy oven powered by more-than-100–watt light bulbs.
Serving cupcakes to your guests cuts down on dirty dishes and eliminates the shame 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 that pairs a wine with each scrumptious treat. And 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 or all those foreign tanks heading down the street.
- My family and I walked into Cupprimo on a Wednesday evening and we were immediately taken in by the warm-colored walls and large, sturdy tables and chairs. We were greeted amiably from behind the counter and were promptly helped as we placed our order. In addition to their everyday offerings of Primo Vanilla, Black & White, Strawberry, and Double Chocolate cupcakes, Cupprimo also offers a rotating list of daily specials. – Candid
- Each week, one customer, a flight attendant, buys a dozen cupcakes to fly with her to Chicago. Brown keeps asking why she does not just buy them in Chicago, but the customer said other places are not as consistently good. And that is what makes her shop so successful, Brown said. – Tiffany Young, Community Impact Newspaper
- The cakes were moist & flavorful, they had a great selection of flavors (they change daily), the decorations on the cupcakes were adorable (I got an Easter cupcake with a little candy egg under a peep in a "nest" of buttercream--- awww) .The coffee was pretty good too.Nice atmosphere & good service. – Punk Gardener, Urbanspoon
Inspired by the ice-cream namesake, the bakers of Cupprimo Cupcakery layer three flavors of batter into the neapolitan cupcake, and they go a step beyond conventional by capping the cupcake off with a two-frosting swirl. That colorful and original concoction was part of owner Amy Brown’s arsenal when she battled another local baker on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. Though she didn’t win that bout, Amy and her desserts aren’t without decoration; her s’more cupcakes garnered a spot in the Austin Chronicle’s Best of 2011 lineup, hailed as “an incredibly sticky mash-up of deliciousness.” These flavors join a rotating menu that also includes simple chocolate and strawberry flavors and creative honey-chai and mimosa cupcakes that, like a celebration of 11:14 a.m., can be enjoyed on a daily basis.
