What You'll Get
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Don a frosted disguise with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods at Short Street Cakes.
Voted one of the top three bakeries in Western North Carolina by Mountain Xpress in 2009, Short Street dishes out down-home desserts alongside slices of refreshing Southern hospitality. Sink an ethically minded sweet tooth into a vegan mexican chocolate cupcake, sparked with fragrant cinnamon and a hint of cayenne ($2). Or, sate a carnivorous cuspid with the 6-inch bacon apple cake–a pound cake baked with bacon drippings, crowned with fried-apple cream cheese icing, and sprinkled with crumbled bacon and Richard Simmons's tears ($24). Indulgers who hold a moral opposition to forks can score Short Street's decadent delights in cupcake form ($2–$3 each for full sized), and the cakery will transform most of their creations into a gluten-free form for a small fee and your promise to never dress it in doll clothes. Check out the full bakery menu before calling to place an order.
- After coming here, I can't have cupcakes from anywhere else. For awhile there, I came here everyday for a cupcake. They have minis too in case you need to watch your weight, but I'll tell you, everything in moderation and their cupcakes are a necessity! – Julie L., Yelp
- I've special ordered a couple of gluten free cakes from Short Street Cakes and eaten several of their cupcakes and they've all been fantastically delicious! – Shelby C., Insider Pages
