Cups provide concealment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these incalculable benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake with today's Groupon. For $20, you get a dozen standard decoration cupcakes, with delivery, from Delish Gourmet Cupcakes (a $40.95 value). Orders must be placed three to five days in advance of the preferred delivery date.
Delish Gourmet Cupcakes delivers pint-sized treats to customers throughout Charlotte like a hummingbird dropping cupcake babies with frosting parachutes down mouth chimneys. Cupcake commandant Aryn Keogh brings an artist's eye and a baker's ear to her creations ($36 for a dozen), customizing orders around event themes such as birthdays or bachelorette parties. Past Delish designs have included cupcakes with butterflies of edible ink on rice paper resting atop fondant flowers blooming from the creamy frosting. Delish Gourmet Cupcakes' treats come in several flavors, such as a traditional vanilla cupcake with buttercream frosting and an almond-flavored cupcake accented with an amaretto liqueur. For vegans who value vibrant vanilla victuals, Delish also offers a gluten- and sugar-free cupcake, made with organic flour and agave nectar.
Unwilling to trust her artistic edibles to the heated hustle of the postal system, Keogh delivers all cupcakes herself to customers within a 30-minute radius from her home bakery ($4.95 delivery charge, included with this Groupon), going as far north as Huntersville and as far south as Matthews. For those outside the delivery zone, an additional delivery fee may be added or a meet-in-the-middle dessert drop-off may be scheduled. Contact Delish Gourmet Cupcakes to fall into fantastically formed frameworks of flour and frosting.
- When it comes to flavor, Delish Gourmet Cupcakes certainly doesn't skimp! Using ingredients such as fresh strawberries, real cream, and (where appropriate!) a kick of liqueur, Delish bakes up a selection of flavors that tantalize the taste buds! – Lauren Domm, Charlotte Examiner
- The mother daughter team behind these perennially popular confections is as cute as the cupcakes they offer; beyond the out-of-this-word taste of their cupcakes, working with them to create a personalized a [sic] presentation is no doubt what brings back clients time after time. – Pink to Green
