What You'll Get
Like music, ties, and adjectives, there's a cake that caters to every occasion. Savor a versatile treat with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of carefully baked cakes, cookies, bars, and more at madCakes. Orders must be placed at least 24 hours in advance.
This family-owned-and-operated bakery specializes in bundt cakes but helps customers find just the right sweet for their soiree by also offering cupcakes ($2.50 each), cookies ($1.50–$1.85 each), and dessert bars ($2.85 each) in a variety of classic, creative, and seasonal flavors. Pick up a mini bundt cake in one of madCakes' everyday flavors, including cinnamon swirl, double chocolate chip, Italian cream, red velvet, white chocolate, and zesty lemon, for an easy and elegant dessert to share with a doppelganger ($5–$5.50; serves one to two people). Or, if you're throwing a belated summer block party with an autumn theme, pick up a large ($35–$39; serves 16–22 people) seasonal specialty in longhorn orange (September and October) or pumpkin (October and November). To taste test a variety of treats, have a selection of cakes artistically tiered ($4–$8), or pick up a combination tray of cookies and decadent dessert bars ($31 for 12" tray) sporting enticing flavor nametags such as pecan bourbon, raspberry crumble, chocolate toffee, and strawberry cheesecake.
The creations of madCakes are as delightful on the eyes as they are in the belly, handmade and decorated from scratch using top-notch ingredients and acute attention to cuteness. Customize the dress of the desserts by adding an iced celebratory message or designer bow to the top. Though shipping costs are not covered by this Groupon, madCakes does deliver its edible treasures if you'd like to send some sweets to a far-flung sweetie or can't leave your couch because the floor is hot lava; delivery usually costs $12.50–$18.
