Most dessert-related injuries result from accidental fork stabbings as friends fight for the best slice of cake. Avoid another four-pronged fracases with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one dozen cupcakes at Icing On My Cake in Scottsdale (a $38 value).
Icing On My Cake’s confectioner, Taras, draws upon formal European art schooling to infuse each of his cup-size canvases with equal parts flavor and fluff. Specializing in the British and Australian schools of cake decoration, Taras makes a compelling case for knighthood with such flavors as chocolate mocha, coconut cream, carrot spice, and classic vanilla. With a flair for style that defies their diminutive size, many cupcakes wear elaborate crowns of frosting decorated to resemble flowers, pooches, and metropolitan bus stations. Each miniature masterpiece is handmade with quality ingredients and sugar-free or kosher substitutes upon request. Customers must place their orders at least 24 hours in advance, allowing Taras time to select the perfect flavor and design combination from his vast collection of cupcake still-lifes.
