Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $10, you get $20 worth of sweet treats at Superstar Pastry Design.
Superstar Pastry Design bakes fresh cookies and customizable cupcakes in its store daily using fresh ingredients. Build a cupcake ($4 each) by starting with a foundation of vanilla, chocolate, or red velvet cake, then decorating it with icing such as raspberry or cream cheese, fillings such as fudge and apple-cinnamon, and toppings such as crushed peppermints or graham crackers. Superstar's bakers concoct a host of cupcakes based on existing blueprints, including the fudge-filled, M&M-topped Chocolate Rush and an assortment of cookies and cakes to fill the otherwise lonely shelves of the store's bakery. Lattes and cappuccinos ($3–$4) provide a bitter complement to sweet pastries, allowing overworked sweet teeth time to wipe the saccharine sweat from their enamel before chomping into a moist, flaky fudge brownie ($3).
