Cupcakes are a preferable alternative to birthday cakes, whose constant accompaniment by off-key singing has depleted the planet’s finite supply of forced smiles. Garner genuine grins with today's Groupon: for $10, you get six gourmet cupcakes at Marco's Patisserie (a $20 value).
Renowned for whipping up customized event and wedding cakes from scratch, the oven gurus at Marco's Patisserie brandish confectionary prowess to craft miniature morsels using high-caliber ingredients and 10 flavors of frosting. Customers can celebrate a milestone event or hone their juggling abilities with a half-dozen cupcakes in the form of vanilla, chocolate, yellow butter, carrot, or red velvet—a patron favorite. Be sure to place orders three days prior to pickup to ensure the bakers have plenty of time to decadently gussy up baby cakes after they’re delivered from the pastry stork.
