Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a dozen scrumptious cupcakes at Let Them Eat Cake Inc. (a $36 value), which proudly stores a slew of accolades under its apron, including Best Cupcakes in 2009 from readers of Wedding Chronicle.
Since 1977, Let Them Eat Cake Inc. has lived up to its name by combining art-filled cake with cups of freshly baked goodness, which patrons are then allowed to eat. While the menu of cupcakery changes daily, perennial powerhouses are always available, such as Boston cream pie, butter rum, better than sex, and red velvet rose. Complementing the traditional staples is a rotating cast of creations ranging from the Jackson Pollock (vanilla cake injected with butter rum Bavarian cream filling and splattered with buttercream frosting and butter rum) to the cosmos cupcake (lemon cake blasted with buttercream filling and wrapped in a blanket of raspberry and coconut). The variety of flavors and fillings is so vast, it would take a decoding ring on every finger to calculate the total number of combinations. Though one must never underestimate the power of a cupcake, skeptics can ensure sweet-tooth satisfaction by ordering a custom-built cake at a 10% discount—if ordered up the same day as the cupcakes are picked up (allow 7 days notice for the cake order).
All orders must be placed at least 24 hours ahead of pickup. Not valid on Halloween, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Father's Day, or Mother's Day.
Let Them Eat Cake Inc. has won numerous awards for its cakes and cupcakes, including Best Cupcakes, 2009 from The Wedding Chronicle, Best Wedding Cake from Arizona Bride Magazine, and Best Politically Incorrect Dessert, 2009 from the Phoenix New Times for the Michael Jackson cupcake.
