Dessert doyens bake mini cupcakes in a variety of flavors, perfectly sized to nestle into the stomach's sweet spots. Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes draped in buttercream whisper advice in eaters’ ears, urging them to wash down dessert with a glass of milk or a second mouthful of cupcakes. Meanwhile, rich red-velvet cake and earthy carrot cake with decadent swirls of cream-cheese frosting make luscious Lilliputian versions of confectionary classics. Though not included with today’s Groupon, the shop's range of specialty espressos and cold beverages can satisfyingly sidekick frosted morsels.
