Cupcakes have garnered a reputation for portability by repeatedly sparing hikers the trouble of cutting full-size cakes with crudely whittled sticks. Find sweet relief with today's Groupon: for $11, you get a dozen cupcakes at Little Pearl Cupcake (a $22 value).
Little Pearl's owners fill their cupcakery with delectable confections, combining the delight of gourmet treats with the adorability of miniaturization. Sweet savants greet saccharine-seekers with a cornucopia of freshly baked goods, topped with creamy dollops of pastel butter-cream frosting and the kisses of tiny cherubs. Assemble a dozen delicacies from nine available cupcake flavors, including Little Pearl's signature cupcake, a vanilla cupcake with vanilla-bean frosting topped with edible pearls. The green tea, red velvet, and grasshopper flavors transfigure classic tastes into cupcake form, and the tres leches tickles taste buds with a spongy cake, which, like an overly zealous Oreo lover, is soaked through with three milks and topped with frosting.
