Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $11 worth of mini cupcakes at Mini Delights Bake Shoppe in Elkhart. A cupcake emporium helmed by practiced baker Kelly Bowdoin, Mini Delights Bake Shoppe creates sugared and sprinkled masterpieces in desirable cup-sized portions. Charming bouquets of mini cupcakes ($6 per half dozen) are offered, available in flavors such as chocolate with buttercream frosting, carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting, applesauce spice with brown sugar cream-cheese frosting, and more. Customers can hoard a stockpile of tiny cakes and use it to raise a regal cupcake tower before besieging it with an army of downtrodden mouths.
The Elkhart Truth reviewed Mini Delights Bake Shoppe in 2011:
- The way she can bake, and the way that she and her daughter both understand customer service, I expect they'll be around a long time. I'll happily eat their baked goods as long as they're here. – Marshall King, Elkhart Truth
