Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today's Groupon: for $8, you get an assortment of six cupcakes at Icing on the Cupcake, valid at four locations in Folsom, Rocklin, and Sacramento (a $16.50 value).
The passionate bakers at Icing on the Cupcake garnered a trio of honors in 2010, when the KCRA-3 A-List named their work Best Dessert, Best Bakery, and Best Cupcake. Whereas some bakeries sneakily cut cupcakes out of regular-size cakes, the icing emporium creates a rotating selection of treats including the signature Pinkdelicious, a chocolate cupcake crowned with pink buttercream frosting. Specialty flavors such as maple bacon cater to sophisticated palates with a sprinkling of real bacon pieces and fleur de sel, and caramel-apple cupcakes fuse classic sweets into a delicious new whole, like Dr. Frankenstein's second, less-famous monster. Clients can pick up cupcakes at any of Icing on the Cupcake's four locations or have the fist-size treats delivered to local addresses for an additional fee.
Icing on the Cupcake
Icing on the Cupcake’s innovative, meticulously crafted cupcakes have made the shop a top local dessert business on the KCRA A-List for the past three years. Drawing from a cumulative 50 years of baking experience, chefs whip up a daily-changing menu using gourmet ingredients, such as madagascar bourbon vanilla, buttercream frosting, and bacon bits. Colorful displays of cupcakes stack up beneath contemporary decor inside the shop. The bakery also offers delivery services throughout the Sacramento area, bringing freshly baked morsels to customers' homes, offices, or hiding places behind the curtains of their favorite newscasters.
