Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one dozen assorted cupcakes (a $40 value) at Red Velvet Cupcakery, with locations in Penn Quarter, Arlington, and Reston, Virginia. The Red Velvet Cupcakery's DuPont Circle location is now closed.
Red Velvet Cupcakery's pastry chefs unleash their culinary capabilities on quality ingredients to fashion a menu of cup-sized delicacies. Tongues curtsy for the Southern Belle, a signature cupcake dressed in whipped cream cheese, the standard costume of Scarlett O'Hara. Absorb morsels of the Peanut Butter Cup, a chocolate-buttermilk cake laced with chocolate chips and topped with a creamy peanut purée. Meanwhile, the Cookies 'n Cream cupcake, blended with cookies 'n cream pieces and garnished with more cookies, charms cookie lovers with a delightful texture and poems it claims were written with them in mind.
