What You'll Get
Advances in miniaturization technology led to a brief but intense dessert-shrinking frenzy that gave us the cupcake, the baked rhode island, and the gingerbread amoeba. Celebrate the world's most successful shrunken treat with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a dozen cupcakes at Desserves in Aiken, South Carolina (an $18 value).
Desserves owner Milisa Godson fills her cupcakery with delectably dulcet concoctions based on cherished family recipes. Passing under the shop's pine-green awning, sweet savants are greeted by two cases of freshly baked goods topped with creamy dollops of pastel frosting. Groupon buyers can collate a dozen confections from any of Desserves' nine standard cupcake flavors. German-chocolate and Italian-cream confections allow visitors to taste the flavors of Europe without the hassle of stealing a diplomat's lunchbox, and succulent cheesecake, carrot-cake, and yellow-cake treats pack the flavors of full-size sweets into a more portable form.
