Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carnivoral instincts with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one dozen gourmet cupcakes from Holy Cow, Cupcakes!, located in Carmel. Get up to three Groupons to haul home a dozen treats for each of your three pet hedgehogs' birthdays.
The talented pastry chefs at Holy Cow consistently create batches of bliss-inducing indulgences for the cupped-cake-loving public. The menu changes constantly, but perennial flavors, such as a traditional vanilla birthday cake topped with fudge frosting and sprinkles and a luscious red velvet cake with vanilla cream cheese frosting, are available every day. Featuring seven to 10 flavors per day, the ensemble cast includes the Clarence (a lemon cake with lemony cream cheese frosting), the cookies and cream, and the gingerbread. The popular maple bacon is a satiating treat of maple cake with bits of bacon scattered gracefully atop a pillow of maple cream cheese icing. Eggnog, mint julep, and Guinness are also available during designated seasons.
Decorative toppings are not in short supply, and in the past, Holy Cow has created masterpieces ranging from a spaghetti-and-meatballs cup to a sunflower-topped cup. Always up for a challenge, the dessert divas will have a go at a special flavor or design you have in mind, be it peanut-butter-filled quadruple chocolate or grandmother's recipe for ocean cupcakes with black sand frosting.
