Like engagement rings, a baby's laughter, and corgi sweaters, the best treats come in small packages. Bite into a mouth-sized morsel with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one dozen cupcakes at In The Mix Bakery in the Collin Creek Mall in Plano (a $24 value).
Formulated from 25 years in the baking business, In The Mix Bakery's cupcake recipes tantalize taste buds with quality ingredients in luscious combinations. Trained in Europe, Roza and Sem Volfson craft these portable treats from scratch, concocting their own recipes for flavors such as red velvet, champagne, and chocolate ganache. The german chocolate cake telescopes down into cupcake form filled with rich Ghirardelli chocolate and topped in buttery pecan frosting, bathing salivary sensors in more Teutonic flavor than Bach's ode to lederhosen.
In the Mix Bakery
For more than a quarter of a century, In The Mix Bakery owners Roza and Sam Volfson have labored at the ovens, honing their craft in professional kitchens, culinary schools, and catering services until they perfected the techniques used to craft each of their mouthwatering personalized desserts. After emigrating from Russia in the early '80s, the couple brought with them years of training in European pastry craft, along with Roza's own original recipes for conjuring lavishly decorated, multitiered wedding cakes and then patiently chiseling them down into lovely petits fours. Beyond crafting custom confections for the likes of the Dallas Mavericks and Bank of America, the duo has also won numerous accolades for their sugary treats, including a 2010 nomination for Best Bakery for Sweets by D Magazine and an award for Best Cinnamon Rolls in Dallas from the Dallas Observer in 2003.
