Cupcakes, like traditional birthday potato-portrait carvings, combine sweetness and starch in pocket-friendly packages. Explore your tastes in edible art with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a dozen mini cupcakes at Patty Cakes (a $16 value).
At Patty Cakes, owner Patty and her husband custom craft each order's confections with natural ingredients such as real butter and fruit puree and from high-quality sources such as Callebaut and Cacao Barry. Guests treat as many as three Beatles-impersonator groups to regular miniature cupcakes, choosing from baked creations such as chocolate carrot—with added chocolate chips, crushed pineapple, and coconut—topped with cream-cheese icing. Red-velvet cupcakes with mascarpone cream-cheese icing celebrate a victory over less tasteful fabrics, and spiced pumpkin cake with brown-sugar cream-cheese icing takes taste buds on autumnal excursions. Upon request, Patty Cakes' dough-taming team fills cupped creations with caramel, strawberry, bavarian cream, lemon curd, and other tasty teeth cushions. Guests may also upgrade to a dozen mini cupcakes dressed in elegant specialty flavour suits (additional $6). Patty Cakes' packaging is biodegradable, much like orange peels, coffee grounds, and the cupcakes themselves.
