Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carniveral instincts with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $10 worth of cupcakes and baked goods at Gimmee Some Sugar, located in downtown Bakersfield.
Stephanie Caughell, owner and executive pastry chef at Gimmee Some Sugar, has been creating beautiful and delicious custom-baked goods for more than 10 years. Step into the bakery for an experience akin to a weekend at your grandmother’s house, with everything made from scratch using quality ingredients and the TV remote nowhere to be found. Cupcakes ($2.50–$5.50 each) come in a variety of combinations and flavors, with each arriving specially tuxedoed in gourmet toppings. Doubly satisfy a sweet tooth with the candy shop cupcakes, featuring favorite sweets such as Oreos and peanut butter cups, or coast into kicked-up campfire classics with the caramel marshmallow s’mores ($4), coated in a layer of chocolate and best enjoyed with the ghost story about the meticulous accountant.
This Groupon can also be applied toward Gimmee Some Sugar’s cake decorating class ($150), or, for those who love custom cakes but hate custom caking, any of the bakery’s custom-made cakes ($39+). Celebrate a birthday, a parole hearing, or a return from a space station with the sugary sustenance of Gimmee Some Sugar.
Gimmee Some Sugar is open Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Stephanie Caughell forged her career without compromise. Growing up, she wanted to be both an artist and a chef, so she followed her passions to pastry school, then to the kitchens of renowned dessert masters. Incorporating tips from celebrity chefs such as Anthony Bourdain and Mario Batali, Stephanie creates eye-catching cakes and cupcakes from scratch for her shop, Gimme Some Sugar.
Stephanie preps sweet treats for any occasion—whether it's a walk-in cupcake craving or a large wedding. Her versatility is reflected in each cake's presentation: some are elegant towers with petals or ivy winding down the sides, whereas others are carved into fairytale castles, designer handbags, or even Homer Simpson. They come in flavors such as cinnamon swirl and confetti, and hide cream fillings within their decadent tiers and hidden sub-frosting crawlspaces.
