Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a dozen cupcakes (a $15 value) at Ronnie's Bakery and Cakes by Lou, with locations in Bluffton and Hilton Head Island.
Ronnie's Bakery and Cakes by Lou crafts elegant pastries with a jeweler's attention to detail. The white, yellow, chocolate, and red-velvet batters tap into innate aesthete tendencies, and the lemon, coconut, and carrot cakes refine nature's inherent scrumptiousness. Sweets specialists swirl together vanilla and chocolate to imitate Michelangelo or a highly sought-after bathhouse architect by crafting something beautiful out of marble. Customize the delicious dozen with cream-cheese icing, buttercream frosting, or whipped-cream topping before adding sprinkles, the dessert equivalent of a car with diamond-encrusted rims. The indecisive or accommodating can have the best of at least 12 worlds by mixing and matching cupcake varieties within a single box.
Peaks of frosting crown the cupcakes at Ronnie’s Bakery, which are ornamented with creative designs such as red-seamed baseballs or the faces of pop-culture icons. Larger cakes can be created to accompany handheld desserts.
