Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one-dozen cupcakes at Gilmon's Bakery (a $33 value).
Scamper across Gilmon's Bakery's checkerboard floor to view colorful display cases stocked with freshly baked cakes, cookies, and cupcakes, and watch confectioners decorate their wares at a visible frosting station before smuggling home a variety of cakey cups. Each day, batter-whisperers bake 9–12 different flavors for customers to serve at weddings, parties, or successful parole hearings. Chocolate-chip cookie dough nestles next to red velvet, and tangy key lime and sweet strawberry shortcake gossip about the carrot cake's latest frosting hat. Always stylish, cupcakes regularly step out in sugar decorations that reflect the season, sports teams, or aesthetically pleasing psychic visions. Cleanse palates between cupcake courses with coffee ($1.25), bottled water ($1), or a mini cannoli ($1.25), which are not included in the price of this Groupon.
