Cake brings people together, which is evidenced by the high attendance of birthday parties and by the number of baseball players that fit into an oversized one at Mark McGwire's 1999 St. Louis Cardinals reunion party. Break Big Mac's record with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods delivered from Pickle's Bake Shop's online store.
Pickle's Bake Shop handcrafts cakes, cookies, and other sweet treats that sate sacchariferous yearnings. The dessert designers concoct their morsels from scratch using high-caliber ingredients, including Madagascar-bourbon vanilla and rich chocolates. The popular cake jars ($15 for two) cram flavorful ingredients into ready-to-devour packages. Sweeten up pantries with the vanilla-bean cake jar, with vanilla and chocolate buttercream, or get a small-scale glimpse into the earth's delicious core with the red-velvet cake jar, which reveals layers slathered with cream-cheese-buttercream frosting. Meanwhile, cream-cheese icing cascades down the sides of the pull-apart cinnamon-roll bread ($13/loaf), and lonely milk jars sweat in the presence of alluring cookies such as the chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter ($12/one dozen). Today's Groupon can also be used toward shipping.
