Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carniveral instincts with today's Groupon: for $14, you get nine cupcakes at Delilah Bakery in Echo Park, a $29.25 value. The divine nine can be any combination of the following three flavors: red velvet, peanut butter, and chocolate.
Delilah's handheld cakes are baked in larger-than-normal cups, resulting in treats that are about one-and-a-half times the average cupcake size and, therefore, 68 times as delicious. Made the true southern way with plenty of cream-cheese frosting and extra molecules of moistness, the red velvet makes even the most dedicated of dentists question their beliefs. The chocolate cakes will silence those who once laughed at your flask of cold milk, and the peanut butter delivers all the flavor one would expect from jelly's sidekick.
The sweetery features friendly service and a laid-back atmosphere. Tiny, over-the-top-cute ceramic figurines deck the space and on occasion Voltron together to form a man-sized mascot. Ready a cupcake-cradling grip and head to the shop, leaving with nine decadent cupcakes that make tasty snacks, tasteful gifts, and distasteful whoopee cushions.
