Dinner without dessert is like a foreign movie without subtitles—you can digest both, but you’ll probably miss out on the good parts. Fast-forward to tasty endings with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one dozen cupcakes or one 8-inch round cake at Rockwell’s Café & Bakery in Villa Park (up to a $34.95 value).
Over the course of 25 years, Rockwell’s Bakery has whipped up more than 500,000 cakes renowned for their artful exteriors and moist, mouthwatering centers. Bursting forth with the shop’s signature cake flavors in miniature form, cupcakes satiate sweet hankerings with a selection of handheld masterworks. The carrot cupcake miniaturizes a frosted classic, then covers it in cream-cheese icing, and chefs drizzle the cookie-inspired Oreo cupcake in Oreo whipped cream and instructions for eating the inside first. Sacher-torte cupcakes, black-forest cupcakes, and german-chocolate cupcakes grant any tea party or backyard barbecue a hint of Old World refinement. Or, keep the flavor palate light and puckery with refreshing lemon-mousse cupcakes, topped with a candied lemon slice that may be eaten or repurposed as a delicious wrestling mouth guard.
Plump with locally sourced fruits and fresh ingredients, 8-inch artisan cakes make a perfect centerpiece for birthdays, anniversaries, or the triumphant return of Thursday. The signature chocolate-curl cake stuffs white, chocolate, or marble cake with fresh strawberries and a choice of raspberry mousse, chocolate mousse, banana mousse, or venetian cream, all swaddled within a sheath of white whipped cream, chocolate curls, and chocolate-dipped strawberries. The heart-shaped berries take center stage in the strawberry-supreme cake, a two-layer white cake brimming inside and out with whipped cream and fresh strawberry slices, and the tiramisu cake tips its hat to the traditional Italian dessert by filling two layers of white cake with mascarpone cheese, espresso, and optional meatballs.
