Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a half-dozen cupcakes at Just Baked Cupcakes (a $15 value), located inside the Carolina Art Garden at the Oak Street Mill in Cornelius.
Just Baked Cupcakes infuses and frosts spongy, sweet treats with classic, creative, and seasonal flavors that rotate each day. Classic-dessert cravers can stuff their palms and faces with flavors such as raspberry champagne, mojito, or banana caramel cashew or go spelunking through the dark, rich innards of a chocolate-maple-bacon confection. Owners Chris and Missy Wallace use imaginative, gourmet ingredients to craft each minicake, following perfected family- and friend-provided recipes to ensure that each bite contains flavorful layers of love.
