Before clumsy butter churners accidentally invented frosting, cupcakes were typically topped with cinnamon-raisin bagels, edible Belgian flags, or subpoenas to a cookie-jar-theft trial. Savor pastries topped with something other than a governmental writ with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one dozen cupcakes (a $36 value) at Gigi's Cupcakes. This Groupon is valid for the E. Flamingo Road location in Las Vegas only.
The cupcake selection at Gigi's upgrades handmade sweets to gallery status with swirling frostings made from farm-fresh, creamy butter, well-placed fruit and nut selections, and decadent chocolate sauces that look inviting enough to swim in, despite occasional gummie-shark infestations. Vanilla and cinnamon sourced from Madagascar and Saigon add a touch of worldliness to Gigi's fresh-made sweets. On a hot summer day, fortunate cake cravers snatch up root-beer-flavored yellow minicakes topped with buttercream frosting, drizzled with marshmallow cream, and accented with an appropriate gummie cola bottle and straw. Other refreshing choices include piña-colada-coconut cupcakes topped with cream-cheese frosting, a fresh cherry, and a functional paper umbrella for those who like piña coladas but dislike getting caught in the rain. Well-prepared customers can check the daily menu for currently available eats.

Gleaning her baking skills from her mother and grandmother, Gigi's Cupcakes' eponymous owner and founder opened her first cupcake hub in 2008, drawing upon her entrepreneurial spirit and gift for crafting beautifully topped cupcakes. The franchised cupcakery now has 80 locations, each of which churns out flavors that rotate daily and are made fresh every morning. The shop's selection of more than 30 flavors includes wedding cake, Scarlett’s red velvet, and Miss Princess. Patrons can pick out sweet treats from the daily selection or preorder them at least one day in advance online, by phone, or via singing telegram.
