Cakes, like leprechaun house parties or movie characters played by Natalie Portman, are known to bring abundant smiles and instant joy to all who are lucky enough to encounter them. Today's Groupon slides one of those elusive joy-makers onto your party table: for $20, you get a 10-inch party cake from Maribelle Cakery (a $45 value). This Swan Road cakery has been pleasing partiers and regruntling postal workers with homemade cakes and confections since 1992—winning Tucson Weekly's Best Custom Cakes four years in a row.
With graduations, weddings, and whale-wrestling season fast approaching, a customized party cake serves as a tasty treat for groups of gathered revelers. A 10-inch party cake from Maribelle serves about 30 people, and the cakery's abundant bounty of flavors and fillings will please even the most picky cake connoisseur. Plump a lemon almond cake with red raspberry filling, or infuse a rich German chocolate cake with fresh sliced strawberries or Frangelico cream. Any combination of bakery beautifying extras—be they fresh-cut or frosting flowers, chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate curls and shavings, or curly ribbons—are included in the price, so pile on the ornamentation to construct a memorable masterpiece.
While cakes primarily function as neck pillows on long airplane rides, they're also a fun way to celebrate any festive occasion or arrival home from fetching the morning newspaper. Call ahead to place your custom cake order with Maribelle Cakery.
- When it comes to your wedding, Maribelle's nuptial noshes include tiramisu, white chocolate, a lethal orange butter cake and Maribelle's signature chocolate truffle cake. It's dark chocolate, filled with Bailey's Irish cream and chocolate truffle--so good, it should be illegal. But fear not; you don't have to get married to get some. – Tuscon Weekly
- I had my first Maribelle Cakery fresh Strawberry and Cream Cheese cake at a friends birthday party last week and it was fabulous! It was light and delicious and was just perfect. – ginaginagirly, Citysearch
