Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get one dozen cupcakes (an $18 value) at Fairytales Custom Cakery in Greenwood.
Fairytales Custom Cakery whips up never-frozen, made-to-order cupcakes, placating finicky sweet teeth with home-baked, award-winning taste. An array of cupcake flavors, such as caramel, red velvet, banana split, and dark chocolate, await careful perusal, and custom designs add color to pasty pastry palates. Groupon holders choose one flavor and then call 24 hours in advance to order, as the sister-owned Fairytales crafts cakes by appointment only. After fetching your bounty, sink your teeth into a dozen dainties and roll your eyes heavenward, broadcasting to jealous angels that your mortal body may be crude, but at least you have taste buds.
