What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Cake vs. Cupcakes
A well-timed dose of cupcakes can make a dull winter bright, bring a smile to the face of a child, and even play a pivotal role in diffusing tensions during an XYZ Affair. Resolve your own diplomatic crisis by appeasing your sweet tooth with today's Groupon. For $6, you get a 12-pack of mini cupcakes from LA Sweets in South Miami, a $12.84 value. There is no purchase limit, so addiction is imminent. However, there is a limit of one redemption per visit to help curb any ensuing mini-cupcake dependency.
Each frosting-covered cake concoction is baked fresh daily, so you don't need to worry about being allergic to the ancient Egyptian preservatives commonly found in "tomb cake." There are 50 or so different combinations of base and icing, but just like Law & Order spin-offs, not all flavors are available on all days. You are welcome to call ahead to hear what's hot. On the fateful day you choose to redeem your Groupon, you'll be able to fill your box with any 12 adorable mini cupcakes of your choosing from that day's available flavors. Possibilities include a sweet-potato cupcake with marshmallow buttercream frosting, a key-lime cupcake with cream-cheese buttercream frosting, and chocolate cupcakes with frostings ranging from caramel to oreo buttercream—among many, many more. Browse the entire all-star lineup to see what may be in store for your taste buds.
Lead baker Letty Alvarez has spent a lifetime baking and perfecting her moist sensations, which are optimized for rapid consumption. Her gourmet cupcake palace is more than a simple snatch-and-snack hut. A lounge-like atmosphere creates a relaxed and soothing setting for cupcake-inhaling monsters. Patrons are encouraged to hang for a bit to surf the free Wi-Fi, play classic board games, or soak in some TV rays from the large flat screen, all while sipping on some coffee and enjoying newly acquired sweets.
- Owners Letty and Eddie Dominguez have blatantly poured a lifetime’s worth of passion, dedication and baking know-how into this hidden jewel.…Having tried nearly every one of her 42 flavors, I can genuinely say that moist and delicate are understatements.…Each cupcake is as divine as the next and the only difficulty becomes deciding between which flavor and how many. – Asian-Fusion.com
- The lounge provides tables, chairs, and couches for sitting as well as free WiFi. Also, if you’re not in the mood for something too rich and sweet, try the banana nut mini cupcake with cream cheese frosting - it’s delicious! – Distraction Magazine
- By far the best cupcake shop in town, I have been to ALL of the cupcake shops in and out of town, including Magnolia's in NYC and Sprinkles in CALI....LA Sweets is by far in my opinion the absolute best one. They always have a ton of flavors to choose from and their cupcakes undeniably fresh...the cake is always moist and the buttercream is never hard... – cupcake addict, Urbanspoon
