Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carnivoral instincts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get six cupcakes from Occasionally Cake in Alexandria (up to a $21 value). Occasionally Cake offers a mouthwatering daily selection of gourmet cupcakes in a rotating rainbow of flavors. Give your tongue a summery treat with the fuzzy navel, orange cake topped with peach buttercream, or indulge your inner child with fairy floss, an airy concoction of vanilla sour cream cake and pink cotton candy frosting. The aptly named "everything but the kitchen sink" loads a vanilla cake with a tasty trifecta of peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch chips before dunking it in a caramel bath and plopping on becoming peanut butter icing and Heath bit tiara. Aspiring pastry chefs are also invited to give three days notice and request their own specific cupcake flavor, proving the old adage that personalized treats come to those who politely alert the bakery in advance.
- The cake was light and moist and the frosting was just the right texture – not too thick, and it didn’t taste like someone just gobbed peanut butter on top (I have come across that before!) This one was definitely my favorite of the bunch. – Delleicious DC
- Occasionally Cake made the cakes for my wedding reception. They were simply incredible! – Steven S., Yelp
At Occasionally Cake, pastry chef Sabrina Campbell gets pretty bold with her cupcake flavors. So it may not come as a surprise that one of their bestsellers is called Everything But The Kitchen Sink. There's a lot going on with this vanilla cupcake—it's filled with peanut butter, chocolate, and butterscotch chips, dipped in caramel, iced with peanut butter frosting, and topped off with Heath bits. Other cupcakes, meanwhile, range from the Fuzzy Navel—an orange cake with peach buttercream—to the Grasshopper, a chocolate truffle cake crowned with mint-Oreo buttercream and capable of leaping several feet if startled. Sabrina also crafts cakes for special occasions such as weddings and birthday parties.
