Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon to Lucy & Leo's Cupcakery in Midtown. The sweet-tempered sweet shrinkers at Lucy & Leo's bake their dainty desserts from scratch in a cute, eclectic shop awash in bright colors and adorned with off-beat wall art. Select six standard-size cupcakes from the bakery's rotating daily flavors (a $14.51 value, including tax), or use your Groupon's $15 value toward a cupcake special order of nine or more treats with specified flavors and/or decorations. Because the confection gurus at Lucy & Leo's make their bite-sized desserts in small batches, in-store purchases are limited to 18 cupcakes to ensure that there are enough fresh sweets to go around. You may also use your Groupon toward a box of elaborate, custom-decorated creations, though 48-hour advance notice and at least two functioning teeth are required.
Bay Magazine, the Tallahassee Democrat, Journey, and local food blog Tally Foodie all featured Lucy & Leo's Cupcakery. Six Yelpers give it an average of four stars, and 87% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
- The overwhelming favorite and bestseller is the Red Velvet cupcake with buttery cream topping and red and white glassy-sprinkles. The soft base of the cupcake and firm top are rich and taste like they came from a master pastry chef. – Caryn Wilson, Journey
- Their space, which they share with Textures Handmade Market is a colorful, quaint, upbeat little bakery… The icing was so rich and creamy and full of peanut-buttery-goodness that I licked the wrapper afterwards to get any last little remaining drips of icing. – Tally Foodie
