Without the promise of sweets, mouths would never have the patience to stay open during dentist's appointments or closed during beekeeping demonstrations. Keep mouths copacetic with today's Groupon: for $27, you get your choice of 12 mini bundt cakes from Edible Spirits in Stuart (a $54.95 value).
Featured several times on The Daily Buzz, Edible Spirits combines the inspiring character of hooch with the chewability of pastries. Sweets sorcerers conjure up soft palm-sized bundt cakes in seven different flavors—banana-coconut rum, for example, transports taste buds to a boozy Caribbean paradise with two types of rum, while the shop's signature treat, the walnut rum cake, takes a triple-dip in rum sauce. Icing-drizzled chocolate cherry-brandy cakes soak their spongy selves in cordial-tinged Ghirardelli chocolate, creating a never-ending circle of sumptuous dessert. Reminiscent of a balanced college breakfast, the pancakes-and-waffles cake blends Sailor Jerry spiced rum, butterscotch schnapps, and Florida orange juice to kick-start your morning after a long night of cramming for an emissions test. Other flavors include almond amaretto, key-lime rum, and orange liqueur.
Edible Spirits' cakes are individually wrapped to prevent them from attempting to share their flavors with each other. The treats can be frozen for up to nine months or refrigerated for six, allowing dessert-lovers to get their bundt fix on multiple future occasions.
