Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Say what meter and rhythm cannot with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of cakes, cupcakes, and cookies at Gimme Some Sugar, in southeast Las Vegas.
Gimme Some Sugar bakes and shapes couture pastries from scratch, which sparkle with edgy designs and finite detailing. The marquee of flavors flickers with star confections such as sexy red velvet, bouncy chocolate, and luscious lemon, with each taste able to act as the leading role in a single-tier cake, cakelet, or wedding blooper-reel of your choosing (starting at $50).
More adventurous palates may dig into deluxe combinations such as s'mores, chocolate-raspberry, or the decadent tuxedo, which struts out ultimate-chocolate and white-butter cake layers filled with dark-chocolate ganache. Or make the day of a lonely glass jar by filling it with the bakery's signature sugar cookies, sold at a minimum of one dozen per order ($42).
