Cupcakes, like miniature horses and miniature mini golf courses, prove that good things come in small packages. Stand up for the little guy with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a half-dozen signature cupcakes at Midnite Confection’s Cupcakery (a $16.50 value).
Midnite Confection’s mother-and-son chefs slather delectable toppings on a menu of petite sweet-tooth satisfiers. Six varieties of signature cupcakes compete for dessert domination, loaded with rich, frosting-capped flavor. Bourbon madagascar vanilla invades the Eclipse and Full Moon flavors, and the Black Velvet's cocoa and cream cheese frosting and Sublime-inal's lemon-flavored cake and lime frosting make jealous Christmas fruitcakes overcompensate by working on Flag Day. The Midnite variety tempts recovering chocoholics with its chocolate buttercream frosting and chocolate-chip cream-cheese center. Meanwhile, the carrot-cake-style Playboy, made with organic carrots, a dash of pineapple, a secret storm of spices, and fluffy frosting, plants veggie-augmented sweetness in fertile stomach gardens.
Midnite Confection’s Cupcakery
It was almost midnight when Sandra found her son Aaron bustling around the kitchen, looking to satisfy a late-night sweet craving. Cooking had been one of the family's shared passions for decades, so it was only a matter of moments before Sandra joined Aaron in digging through old cupcake recipes and experimenting with flavors and frosting. With the counters covered in sweets, the snack craving thoroughly satisfied, and the Sandman growing impatient, the two went to bed, only to awaken the next day and share their midnight creations with family and friends. The reaction was overwhelming. The mother-son team quickly found themselves baking for so many birthday parties and special events that they decided to start a business, eventually earning a spot on Baltimore magazine's list of Our Favorite Cupcakes.
At Midnite Confection’s Cupcakery, Sandra and Aaron continue to channel the enthusiasm and inventiveness they felt that first night. Their selection of more than 40 sweet treats includes signature flavors, such as birthday cake and a carrot-cake cupcake with organic carrots and a bit of pineapple, but also changes to include seasonal favorites. They also top their creations with decadent spreads such as whipped-pistachio or Grand Marnier–tinged icing. Although these handheld snacks are available at the store, Midnite Confection's food truck also travels the streets, spreading cupcakes to working folks.
