In Victorian England, many people communicated in cake, writing novels in buttercream frosting or sneaking scandalous missives in rasperberry filling. Today's Groupon lets you savor this lost language medium with $30 worth of cake, pastries, and lunch fare for $15 at Supreme Kakes.
The icons of edible architecture at Supreme Kakes erect towering tributes of fluffy sweetness custom crafted and lavishly decorated for all occasions, from birthdays that need as many layers as there are years to holidays that require cake with personality, like Bring Your Cake to Work Day. The accommodating cake construction workers start with a foundation of 11 basic cake flavors, such as Dutch chocolate, amaretto, rum, and Italian cream. Next, they can fill the chosen cake with any from a long list of delectable comestibles, such as guava, dulce de leche, and chocolate mousse, before topping them with such toothsome frostings as mocha buttercream, orange ganache, or vanilla fondant. Cake pricing varies as widely as each cake's impression upon your palate and final royal appearance, but you can usually pick up a basic 8-inch round cake with one filling for $20 or a quarter-sheet cake for $30.
Cakes naturally steal the lunchtime show at Supreme Kakes (slice, $3.95), but if you're taking Mom out for lunch at the homey, family-centered deli and just can't have dessert first, start with a Cuban sandwich with ham, slow-roasted marinated pork, Swiss cheese, and mustard ($6.95) or a chewy empanada with succulent shredded beef or chicken, baked or fried ($1.60, $2.25). Delicate pastries such as éclairs and cream puffs (both $1.50) round out the sweets.
Chef and experienced cake detailer Veronica Anaya specializes in transforming dreams into ganache, concocting cakes for hipsters, visiting ministers, and muscle cakes like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. Here's your chance to finally dig into a seven-layer narwhal or a frosting portrait of existentialist icon Albert Camus.

Supreme Kakes' Chef Veronica spent 19 years in the kitchen mastering the sugary, floury basics of baking cakes great and small, an effort that earned her customizable-cake business enough traction to risk moving from her home kitchen to a 6,000-square-foot bakery in 2009. There, the chef and her equally adventurous staff craft statuesque sweets from a rich palette of 50 flavors and fillings such as almond amaretto cream and chocolate raspberry truffle. Veronica's artful baked-to-order cakes become the centerpiece at weddings and birthdays, channeling the honorees' personality and passions through vivid likenesses of cartoon characters, architectural marvels, or favorite sports broadcasters. The bake masters supplement their repertoire of towering sweets with their diminutive cousins, buttercream- and fondant-based cupcakes, and can often accommodate dietary and allergy restrictions with wheat- and gluten-free goods or cakes shaped into enormous antihistamine capsules.
