Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $14, you get one-dozen LSU-themed specialty cupcakes at KC's Babycakes in Mandeville (a $29 value).
Baking since the ripe age of 13, KC of KC's Babycakes tantalizes taste buds with decadent homemade treats made daily from all-natural ingredients. Feed a squad of linebackers or three four-square teams with a boxful of KC’s special-occasion treats, each festooned in Louisiana State University’s signature purple and gold hues. The cupcakes intoxicate senses with flavors from the tried-and-true chocolate cake topped with Madagascar-vanilla frosting, to the vanilla cupcake topped with chocolate buttercream richer than the Monopoly man's 24-karat-gold spleen. Those who prefer not to mix and match can delight tastebuds with chocolate bedecked with chocolate, or vanilla paired with vanilla frosting. Sweet seekers should call at least one day in advance to ensure their chosen flavors will be available.
