Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $5, you get four delicious cupcakes (a $12 value) from Dreamcakes Bakery. The Homewood shop stocks a creative assortment of sugary palmtreats, including a menu of monthly specials.
Baker Jan Moon cut her teeth at kitchen stints at both Southern Living and Cooking Light before launching Dreamcakes. Her creative icing-laced confections ($3 per cupcake) are a step up from basic vanilla. Try the bananas foster, a banana cake base pounded with heavy old-fashioned caramel frosting and dripping with caramel drizzle. Coconut fans appreciate the almond joy, a white velvet cake injected with coconut crème filling, covered in coconut frosting and liberally laced in chocolate drizzle with an almond on top. Other selections including a candy-covered banana split, choc-o-cherry, and cinnamon sugar mama. See the complete menu here.
Serving cupcakes to your guests cuts down on dirty dishes and eliminates the shame of being the first one to cut into the cake. Instead of making a different cake to suit everyone's tastes, you can get four different flavors for fickle friends or firmly redefine adulthood with a cupcake tasting party with a wine pairing for each scrumptious treat. Gone are the obnoxious protestations that a slice of cake is too big. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand, you'll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about the Bilderberg Group.
