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 $8, you get six cupcakes from Gracie’s Cupcakes in Naples (a $16.50 value).
Owner Grace Bolen and her dessert engineers craft acclaimed, freshly made cupcakes in more than 30 flavors. Indulge in nostalgia-laden classic-cupcake flavors such as vanilla, cookies & cream, or lemonade-stand quarter jar, or sample novel brown-sugar caramel and apple-spice flavors. Hummingbird cupcakes set tongue-hearts aflutter with a potent blend of pecans, pineapple, and mashed bananas. Like famers' markets and the annual gift basket of astronauts NASA sends up to hungry aliens, the store's cupcakes are seasonal offerings composed of fresh ingredients. Each shrink-rayed snack—including past quarterly treats such as gingerbread, eggnog, and wild berries—is made without preservatives and created with love, which is known to boost one’s omega-3 count.
