What You'll Get
In a city where every gooey butter cake claims to be the best, today's deal gets you the bestest, gooiest, butteriest, cakiest cake of them all, as determined in a brutal underground cake-fight tournament as gory as it was gooey. For $10, you get a 9"x13" gooey butter cake at LaFayette Square's Park Avenue Coffee—a $20 value. You can only get one Groupon for yourself, so buy one for all your friends and rescue their babies from burning buildings so they'll feel obliged to share. You may redeem this Groupon starting Monday, December 14.
Not only does Park Avenue make the best gooey butter cake, it also makes the most kinds of gooey butter cake and luxury doghouses with a washer/dryer. Head baker and multiplication wizard Marilyn Schotte has taken her mother's traditional recipe and revamped it 64 times and counting. Peek at Shop Park Avenue's cake catalog or view the slide show, where you'll find traditionally gooey butter cake, banana split, chai tea latte, chocolate chip cookie dough, red velvet, rocky road, triple chocolate, and even Elvis (it tastes just like him). If your fancy has a hankering for something seasonal, there's always eggnog and gingerbread.
Park Avenue Coffee ships worldwide (price of shipping not included) so you can share a gooey slice of St. Louis with your Korean pen pal. Savor STL's finest gooey butter cake with today's deal, and reserve those lesser cakes for other things, like poster adhesive, washcloths, and wall insulation.
The Riverfront Times rates Park Avenue Coffee as Best Gooey Butter Cake.
- But is Marilyn Schotte, head baker at Park Avenue Coffee in Lafayette Square, content with simple buttery, sugary, gooey goodness? No, she is not. Instead, she has taken her mother's traditional recipe in 64 different directions, adding fresh fruit and candy bars and altering the batter itself to produce triple chocolate, pumpkin and white chocolate raspberry. – Riverfront Times
