Welcome to Groupon, Victoria! For our inaugural deal, $8 gets you a half dozen cupcakes from Pink Sugar Cupcakery, located at 773 Fort Street. Since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Victoria: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theatre, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power."
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (30 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll be emailed a gift certificate the next morning. You can print your Groupons, or redeem them with our mobile app. Use them whenever you want until the deal expires—today's expires in one year. If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighbourhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a half dozen cupcakes from Pink Sugar Cupcakery (a $16.95 value).
The bakers at the boutique cupcakery bake their delectable dairy-free, egg-free desserts entirely from scratch daily, using only fresh and high-quality ingredients—such as fresh bananas and Madagascar vanilla—in their small-batch baked treats. Inventive cake flavours, including banana split, chocolate orange, and the Lolla Lee Lou—a coconut-lavender-cream-filled vanilla cake topped with a lemon-cream-cheese-esque frosting—fill the convenient confection-cups that house the treats prior to consumption. If you prefer your sweets with a touch of savoury or a pour of booze, try Pink Sugar's man cake flavours, including the maple-bacon Mackenator and the Jack and Coke. Mix and match a half dozen treat varieties from the charming shop's available daily options, or stock your bundle of yum-bombs with one favourite cake flavour.
Cupcakes are an adorable and perfectly portioned treat, and bearing a box of the baked beauties can brighten a dark and lonely night at home or darken an aspiring dieter’s day at the office. Pick up a pack of the dairy-free desserts for an upcoming party, or gift this Groupon to a lactose-intolerant lover with a wicked sweet tooth.
- The new ‘mancakes’…are geared for the guys – like Tequila-Lime, Jack ‘n Coke, and The Mackenator – a maple cake topped with maple frosting and bacon bits. Sound weird? Taste it first. I did and I’m sold. – Catherine Dunwoody, Food Network
- I really thought it was great service, and the baker is obviously very talented. – mlindsay, DineHere
