Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cupcakes at Delesandri's Gourmet Cupcakes, located in Clear Lake Shores.
At Delesandri's, gourmet cupcakes are baked daily to lure dessert diners forever away from the unhealthy world of nonsweets. Snag a single cupped cake ($2.75), a half-dozen ($15), or a dozen ($29) to ensure that taste buds stay happy about their tongue-locked life. Regular drool-inducing flavors include the signature key-lime cupcake with cream-cheese frosting, the gluten-free red velvet, and the italian cream. Flavors such as chocolate mint, carrot, tres leches, and boston crème pie topped with chocolate ganache rotate their way through the week. Cakes, pies, bread pudding, and custom creations are also available on a pre-order basis. Customers can indulge their sweet teeth while relaxing on Delesandri's waterfront patio and using the free WiFi to research the best method for cleaning cupcake icing out of a keyboard.
