Before cupcakes, the only vehicle for frosting consumption was the bare hand, and the only place to load frosting onto that vehicle was the neighborhood frosting bucket. Eat frosting the evolved way with today's Groupon: for $7, you get six mini cupcakes at Sugar Blossom Treats (a $13.50 value).
The confectionary wizards at Sugar Blossom Treats bake fresh, small batches of treats that shun preservatives and hydrogenated oils in favor of local, Texas dairy products, Madagascar bourbon vanilla, and European chocolate. Each day, the eatery creates 12 regular flavors and two–four specials, often announced on its Facebook page or via hungry skywriters. Classic flavors include Karat Carrot, a carrot cake with pecans covered in cream-cheese frosting, and the Old-Fashioned Vanilla, which pairs yellowcake with vanilla buttercream. Flavors grow increasingly eclectic with rotating specials such as the Thin Mint, which mixes chocolate and mint-chocolate ganache, or the Campfire, a blend of chocolate, graham crackers, and white cake, topped with marshmallow frosting and cautionary advice about being a vigilant babysitter written in sprinkles. Grouponers can go after custom orders (minimum of 12), and are advised to call ahead to set aside select flavors.
