- $55 for a five-foot party cake with delivery (a $450 value)
Forgo the six-foot party sub and skip straight to dessert with a five-foot-long party cake, one foot for every year that Groupon has been bringing you great deals. The cake, made of two layers of yellow cake, buttercream frosting, and fondant, will be sculpted into existence by our friends at Lutz Café & Pastry Shop and delivered by our cake delivery team, comprised of the most dextrous and hand-washed Groupon employees available in your area. They'll arrive at your house or office at a predesignated time and make our own birthday wish come true: celebrating with one of our great customers. This crack celebration squadron will also bring a crate full of disposable utensils and up to four liters of name-brand soda, and, once you have provided a sanitary five-foot-long surface, will lay the cake sweetly to rest, light five candles, and commence to sing “Happy Birthday” five times—virtually guaranteeing that by the fifth time, the lyrics will have lost all meaning.
Lutz Café & Pastry Shop
Since opening as the first konditorei, or German pastry shop, in the city of Chicago in 1948, Lutz Café & Pastry Shop has collected praise from the New Yorker, the Food Network, and generations of sweets-savvy mouths. Beneath the curve of a wood-and-glass display case, strudels, cakes, and candies crafted from traditional European recipes preen in the light of pendant lamps. Pristine tablecloths and delicate china crown tables in the flower-filled dining room and private, outdoor garden (open Mother’s Day through October), where a blue reflecting pool mirrors yellow deck umbrellas. Individual pots of Viennese-style coffee energize guests for flurries of typing over the complimentary WiFi network or climbing expeditions to the peak of a towering chocolate-covered Baumkuchen cake.
