Poetry would be comprised entirely 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 with $5 for $10 worth of baked goods at Sweet Addictions on Court Street. For 15 years, artisan Diana Green has been baking and bedazzling cakes just like her grandma used to make. Cakes are just the buttercream-frosted tip of the dessertberg at Sweet Addictions, which also tempts sweetmeat seekers with sultry displays of cookies, brownies, bars, pies, cupcakes, rolls, breads, sticky buns, and cinnamon buns. Standard cookies, including chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and snickerdoodle are $5 for a dozen, and cupcakes––with flavors varying daily––go for $1 and span the sugary spectrum with options such as chocolate cake with cappuccino icing, vanilla with buttercream, and red-velvet cake with cream-cheese frosting. Exotic-flavor cravers can set hunger sights on jalapeño apple or wild-berry scones ($1.50 each). Get sugar-stunned by the sweet custom spectacles at Diana's online design gallery.
