Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get six cupcakes from Lilly Jane's Cupcakes in Eagle (a $16 value). Customers can choose from 12 original cupcake flavors and several daily specials to pop in their greedy nosh holes. Beatles aficionados can savor Strawberry Fields, a fruit- and zither-infused white cake swathed in fresh strawberry buttercream, while a moist, spiced carrot cake pillowed by cream cheese frosting offers spinach-phobic tots a tastier way to eat their veggies. Lilly Jane's can also load a holiday party dessert table with a dazzling array of custom confections decorated with your choice of flower-, heart-, or Benjamin Franklin–shaped sprinkles.

Lilly Jane's Cupcakes
Lilly Jane's Cupcakes' founder Kerri Dunn took the name for her dessert shop from her two grandmothers, Lillie Russell and Phyllis Jayne LeValley. As a little girl, she spent countless hours learning how to bake within their kitchens where many of her original cupcake creations were born. Today, these creations bake to fruition within the pink walls of her own space. Staffers pile buttercream onto 9 to 12 rotating cupcake flavors such as Super Chocolate and Strawberry Fields–a white cake infused with strawberries and topped with strawberry icing. They also design custom sugar cookies to help make graduating, getting married, or being really, really hungry more special.
