Before cakes, 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 $15, you get a dozen cupcakes at Pink Sugar Cupcakery (a $31.95 value).
The bakers at the boutique cupcakery craft 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 treats. Cupcakes are willed into inventive 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. For sweets with a touch of savoury or a pour of booze, customers can also opt for Man Cake flavours, which include 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 keep teeth's tax returns simple by stocking up on a single favourite flavour. Pink Sugar uses organic ingredients whenever possible and swaddles party-favour-friendly cupcakes in compostable wrappers.
