Poetry would be composed entirely of haiku and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $12, you get a 6-inch heart-shaped double-chocolate mousse cake at Sweet Loralee Pastries in Wake Forest (a $25 value).
Sweet Loralee's palate-popular bakers harvest natural flavors using fresh ingredients, nuts, and fruits while crafting their signature, made-from-scratch pastries. Celebrate honored love and commitment or coax a groundhog from its snowy burrow with the heart-shaped double-chocolate mousse cake, which dons a saccharine crown of rich chocolate ganache and a decorative arrangement of chocolate-dunked strawberries. Visitors can devour their moist, multilayered desserts from one of Sweet Loralee's café tables, where they'll sit in close proximity to the shop's freshly baked treats and Keebler Elf bodyguards.
Sweet Loralee Pastries
At Sweet Loralee Pastries, master pastry chef Ilya Koltusky crafts artisanal cakes, pies, cupcakes, and pastries for every occasion. Ilya uses only fresh fruits, nuts, and flavors found far away from the basement laboratories of mad scientists when whipping up buttery pecan tarts, devil's chocolate raspberry mousse, and elaborate four-tier wedding cakes. He is more than willing to accommodate customers who have sensitivities, such as a gluten allergy or stink eye.
