Advances in miniaturization technology led to a brief but intense dessert-shrinking frenzy that gave us the cupcake, the baked Rhode Island, and the gingerbread amoeba. Celebrate the world's most successful shrunken treat with today's Groupon: for $6, you get four extra-large gourmet cupcakes at Sugar Shack (a $14 value). Sugar Shack harnesses the powers of fresh, local ingredients to whisper sweet somethings into the bellies of the dessert deprived. The gourmet cupcakes, so massive it takes all three hands to lift, come in a variety of flavors that rotate daily. Besides standard chocolate and vanilla, Sugar Shack also conjures up a gaggle of inventive taste sensations, such as dark chocolate and bacon, french toast, pineapple cream cheese, and Elvis—a banana cupcake with peanut-butter frosting, chocolate drizzle, dried banana-chip garnish, and gyrating hips. If your sweet tooth isn't sated with the Groupon's worth of cupcakes, Sugar Shack also sells homemade cookies, brownies, and ice-cream sandwiches, and they will deliver within a five-mile radius of the shop.
