What You'll Get
Miniaturizing has given society bagel dogs, puggles, and soccer players who were once NBA centers. Today's Groupon applies the mini to baked goods with two-dozen mini cupcakes from Mission Minis for $12 (a $24 value). Replace the friendship of a few regular cupcake confidants with a full fleet or moral support offered by pinchably cute lap-cupcakes. This deal is valid for in-store pick-up only.
From its miniature store on 22nd Street, Mission Minis employs only the tiniest hands and the highest-quality local ingredients to forge its dainty delicacies. The bakery holds itself accountable to using local spices, fruits, and dairy and implementing organic ingredients whenever possible to spin out such inspired morsels as cinnamon horchata and banana maple-glaze cupcakes. Exercise the imagination that blossoms from your taste buds through such cakey concoctions as Aztec chocolate, pink lemonade, Swiss almond coconut, ginger carrot, and more. Today's deal lets you customize your own family of mini cupcakes and then start a new civilization of fresh-baked diplomacy governed by a fickle and hungry god who will eventually destroy each citizen.
Place your order at least 48 hours in advance via email, and then pick up your newly baked crew of buds. Celebrating the collective birthday of your mini cupcakes invites all kinds of fun and buttercream-frosted sugar lips to all the partygoers.
- Ruby Red Velvet and Cinnamon Horchata were other winners, not that there are really any losers in cupcake land. – Andrew Simmons, San Francisco Weekly
- Mmmm mmmm, were they good...They had the right elements - moist cake, rich frosting, and the right proportions of each. They were pretty to look at, too - each with a little decoration to make it feel special. – Liz S., Yelp
- The base is not too sugary but the top is creamy and smooth. It gives you just enough to entice you to have 1 more, and seduces you to another one, then a couple more. – Tammy C., Yelp

About Mission Minis
Mission Minis' bakers turn out scores of regular- and bite-size cupcakes that have savored national attention through Food Network's Cupcake Wars. Ten flavors line the shop's bake cases, manifesting in classic and offbeat essences including cinnamon horchata and vegan banana maple, also available in gluten-free form. In the event of a malfunction in California's network of underground delivery tubes, the shop can deploy a mobile team to deliver confectionary orders right to doorsteps.
