Unlike crickets or celery, cakes and cookies are more likely to earn envious gazes from coworkers when you shove a handful of them into your mouth during a meeting. Stock up on suitable tasty treats with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cupcakes, treats, and more at SophistiCakes, in Drexel Hill.
Using ingredients from local farms, trees, and cows, the consummate confectionery creators at SophistiCakes bake an extensive menu of custom cakes, cupcakes, and quick-disappearing cookies that look as good as they taste. Savor the family-owned sweetery’s traditional cupcake flavors ($2.50 per cupcake, and $30 for one dozen)—such as red velvet, lemon drop, and triple chocolate chip—on a daily basis; or send a gastronomical love letter to a lonely stomach with specialty flavors, such as the taste-bud-tingling hummingbird cupcake—a moist cake of vanilla, pineapple, and pecans topped with buttercream icing.
SophistiCakes also commemorates more illustrious events—such as baby’s first doctoral thesis and Janitor’s Day—with rich, all-butter pound cakes slathered in chocolate or vanilla buttercream icing ($24.99 for an 8" round) or sumptuous cheesecakes (starting at $27.99). For those who prefer not to fumble with cumbersome plates or forks, frosted finger food can be collected by the dozens in the form of petits fours, which range from bite-size beauties such as cannolis or iced brownies ($32.99 for 3 dozen) to a tray of assorted cookies, mini chocolate pretzels, candy, and fudge ($30.99 for three dozen).
Keeping all cakes seasonal, the creative team at SophistiCakes can satiate every sugary craving or design desire, from an ironic snowflake cake in July to a 3-D birthday cake in the shape of Aunt Louise's lucky goiter. Please call ahead and allow 48 hours for all custom orders.
