Most know that the way to an iguana's heart is through its stomach, but it is useful to remember that human stomachs can be reached through the mouth, nose, eyes, and—if it's an emergency—the number written on the refrigerator's dry-erase board. Stimulate your gentle iguana heart with a sensational feast of sweet tastes, smells, and sights with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of in-store baked goods at Noland's Cakes in Pleasanton.
Noland's is a small bakery packed with a variety of delicious baked goods and in-house cake artists. Cake flavors include classics such as white and strawberry swirl or specialty flavors such as red velvet, yellow amaretto, and German-colored German chocolate. Frostings include buttercream, cream cheese, and a non-dairy whip option, and cake fillings are largely fruit-based, though less-fruity fillings such as vanilla, rum, and chocolate custards can also be found hiding inside these decadent creations.
Take a break from decorating the tree or other denominationally appropriate plant and decorate your table with a seasonal pumpkin roll ($40) or Yule log ($75), available through the holiday season. Holiday cookies start at $5 each and are a perfect way to get in some pony points with Santa, while regular cookies (starting at $1.50) are just as delicious, and no less likely to encourage snackers to do your bidding. Alternately, customers not visually impaired by sugarplums can opt to order a dozen cupcakes ($3–$4 each) to treat family and friends, or buy up to three of today's Groupon and have enough cupcakes to supply an upcoming birthday party or cupcake battle, otherwise known as the most wasteful of wars.
