Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get one-dozen mini cupcakes at Glass Slipper Cakery in Oviedo (a $28 value). This Groupon is valid for the following flavors:
- Basic vanilla with buttercream icing
- Chocolate with buttercream icing
- Red velvet with cream-cheese icing</p>
Concocting an artistic menu of freshly baked morsels, Glass Slipper Cakery’s resident cupcake pros use choice ingredients to bake up sugar-filled treats that have been featured on Fox-35 news. Once customers place their order, the dessert gurus mix, blend, and bake cupcakes from scratch to treat taste buds to vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet cake as fluffy as a cumulonimbus cloud’s cotton-ball core. Icing slathers onto the mini morsels, outfitting vanilla and chocolate cupcakes in buttercream as well as capping red velvet in an edible hat of cream cheese. Finally, sprinkles cascade over the handheld desserts in a colorful shower. As an active member of the International Cake Exploration Sociteté, Glass Slipper Cakery’s resident baker constantly works to improve skills and climb wedding desserts of ever-increasing heights. Customers can order other cupcake and icing flavors for an additional fee.

Prudence Manolov is an artist. But you don't have to stand at a distance when viewing her work. Not even for the pieces that take her up to 20 hours to create.
She wants you to eat them.
Manolov's most-prized works of art are her specialty cakes, whose sculptural, airbrushed designs and unusual flavors have earned her feature spots on Fox-35 News and at events celebrating everything from marriage to a baby's first insulin spike. She initially honed her sugar-sculpting skills at a cake-decorating class at Michaels, where she discovered fondant and an outlet for her artistic talents. Along with elaborate cake creations, which have taken shapes ranging from footballs to seated mermaids, she and her bakery staff create gourmet cupcakes, cream puffs, cannolis, brownies, and other pastries.
