Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one dozen cupcakes at Divine Delicacies Custom Cakes (a $30 value).
Divine Delicacies’ signature vanilla-rum cake and its more than 20 other flavors have become a sugary staple at parties for celebrities such as Dwyane Wade, Britney Spears, and Rihanna. Bakers nurture panfuls of cake batter until they bloom into cupcakes in such flavors as guava-cream cheesecake, key lime, and Godiva chocolate. Cakey foundations then wrap themselves in rich blankets of buttercream, lemon, chocolate, or coconut-cream frosting to escape the chill of the world outside their native ovenland. The founders of Divine Delicacies began baking cakes in their kitchen in Havana, Cuba before relocating to Miami and developing their trademark tastes.
