Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on than their full-sized counterparts. Indulge your maternal/carniveral instincts with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a half-dozen gourmet cupcakes at KC's Babycakes. Groupon customers can phone ahead custom-cupcake orders in advance and pick them up at the Mandeville location.
Browse through KC's cupcake gallery to feast your pupil pointers on a prime selection of premium pint-sized creations dressed for sweet-tooth seduction. Sample the signature Babycake, a vanilla cake infused with semi-sweet chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts and topped with darker-than-noir chocolate frosting and Madagascar-vanilla buttercream. Or chalk another win up to chocolate-chocolate cupcakes, chock full of dark-chocolate cake, dark-chocolate buttercream frosting, and a candy heart topper with a suspicious lack of chocolate. If the regular menu doesn't frost your boat, the rotating menu of daily specials, such as carrot and coconut, might be the preferred pick-me-up for any lonesome sunken sea vessel. The bakers at KC's Babycakes purchase local ingredients whenever possible and provide sugar-free (add $4.50) and gluten-free (add $3.50) options.
Serving cupcakes to your guests cuts down on dirty dishes and eliminates the shame of being the first one to cut into the cake. Instead of making a different cake to suit everyone's tastes, you can get a half-dozen different flavors for fickle friends, or firmly redefine adulthood with a cupcake-tasting party with a wine pairing for each scrumptious treat. Gone are the obnoxious protestations that a slice of cake is too big. Because cupcakes fit neatly into your hand, you'll be too consumed with the childlike delight of devouring the artful edibles to think about blown diets and foreign occupation.
Sugar-free cupcakes are available for an additional $4.50. Gluten-free cupcakes are available for an additional $3.50. This Groupon is not valid for vegan cupcakes.
