Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today's Groupon: for $13, you get one dozen standard or gourmet regular-size cupcakes at Piece of Cake in Oakwood (up to a $26 value).
The pastry chef at Piece of Cake bakes and hand decorates classic and gourmet cupcakes by the delicious dozen. Each box of 12 is baked fresh daily and brims with a single flavor, including sweet standards such as vanilla or chocolate cake topped with vanilla or chocolate buttercream, which please both dessert purists and those on restrictive chocolate-only diets. Cream-cheese frosting perches atop carrot spice cake, and a breakfast buffet of crumbled bacon and syrupy maple-cream-cheese frosting festoon the maple french toast cupcake. Every few months, the confection emporium adds seasonal flavors, such as autumnal Cider House or orange zest cake with vanilla-cream-cheese frosting, a dollop of cranberry compote, and supernatural approval from a Pilgrim's ghost.
