Cupcakes are smaller, more portable versions of fullsized cakes, just as dustbusters are miniature vacuums and Mount Rushmore refrigerator magnets are shrunken versions of Mount Rushmore. Enjoy smaller sizes with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a dozen chocolate or vanilla cupcakes at Cut the Cake in Longwood (a $24 value). This Groupon is only valid for pick-up.
Cut the Cake’s confectionery curators assemble a medley of mouthwatering baked goods that have piqued the palates of A-list celebrities and were deemed worthy of five stars from the Wedding Wire's 2011 “Bride’s Choice Awards”. The ambrosial architects craft chocolate and vanilla cupcakes ($2 each) from fresh ingredients and never freeze leftovers, ensuring that each treat is made to order and cupcakes won't be preserved until desserts double as currency in the future. Just like the President's waterbed, each moist concoction can be complemented with a gooey filling—available in more than 20 creamy flavors such as chocolate ganache, peanut-butter cream, and orange curd—and topped with decadent fudge frosting.
Cut the Cake
When serving as the centerpiece for an exhibit of fine crystal and china, an ornate cake made in the likeness of a table by Cut the Cake's bakers proved to be deceptively realistic. An inadvertently placed box sank into the cake’s edible wood grain and prompted an emergency visit from cake decorator Julie Manning, whose confectionary talents and keen aesthetic eye enabled her to quickly touch up the damaged buttercream before dawn.
Manning applies the same innovative spirit and attention to detail to each memorable wedding cake she creates, earning Cut the Cake five-star awards from Wedding Wire’s Bride’s Choice Awards in 2010, 2011, and 2012. In addition to brides-to-be and ambassadors from Candyland, her clientele has included icons such as James Brown, Lauryn Hill, and B.B. King.
In addition to cake staples such as vanilla and chocolate, Manning also bakes pieces with nontraditional flavors such as piña colada and chocolate mint with crumbled cookies. For an extra dose of sugar, she can accessorize her confections with one of 21 sweet or fruit-packed fillings.
