Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today's Groupon: for $6, you get four regular cupcakes at Frosted Cupcakes & Cakes, located inside Nama’s Candy Store in Edmonds (a $12 value).
Frosted Cupcakes & Cakes proprietor and pastry chef Stefanie Buono bakes a profusion of icing-slathered cupcakes from scratch each day, earning her shop a spot on the Snohomish County Real Estate Guide’s local to-do list. To make her daily batch of buttery treats, Stefanie whisks together all-natural ingredients such as sugar, eggs, and cream, keeping concoctions free of artificial margarine, prepackaged mixes, or cyborg sprinkles played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Flavors rotate daily, but previous options have included dark chocolate cake with fudge frosting or lemon cake topped with passionfruit buttercream.
Customers can call ahead to place orders for their quartet of mini-cakes, or check Frosted’s Facebook page for Stefanie’s cupcake pick of the week. Though not included in today's Groupon, Stefanie can also consult with customers to make customized cupcakes for special events such as birthdays, bridal showers, and unicorn births.
