Cupcakes, like babies, are smaller, cuter, and more tempting to nibble on. Indulge your maternal/carnivoral instincts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a dozen homemade cookies (a $23.80 value), or for $15, you get a dozen cupcakes (a $35.69 value) at Shamane's Bake Shoppe in Boulder.
Locally owned and operated, Shamane's specializes in scratch-made sweetness structured with local and organic ingredients. Like a sailboat or a paper airplane, the shop runs on 100% wind energy, and the bakery extends its green ethos with an in-progress, in-house garden that grows with berries, fruits, and veggies. Cupcakes, which are available in chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, lemon, and coconut flavors, are good for any occasion, from a house-warming party to a party inside an icehouse, and Shamane's whips up its baked delicacies with an artist's touch. Degustators can also choose from a selection of homemade, gourmet cookies, including chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate chip, oatmeal cranberry, and gingersnap.
