Though less devastating than banana-cream pies, cupcakes still provide effective suppressive fire during fancy dinner-party food fights attended by Larry, Curly, and/or Moe. Lock and load with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one dozen gourmet cupcakes at Renee's Fine Cakes (a $24 value), located in Tecumseh near the end of Lesperance Road.
Pastry pasha and eponymous epicurean Renee Pratt-Snively leads a team of chefs that craft gourmet cakes and cupcakes within the cute cafe confines of Renee's Fine Cakes. Baking bravado and attention to detail characterize the vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet delicacies that hop out of Renee's oven six days a week.
Soft pink walls, traditional pastry shop decor, and sweet-smelling stacks of fresh baked goods make Renee's a perfect place to munch on mini masterpieces with friends or enjoy a quiet cappuccino.
