The very first humans invented cupcakes without realizing how many candles they would eventually need to fit on their birthday cakes. Surpass expectations with today's Groupon: for $8, you get six specialty cupcakes at Sweet Confections Cakes (a $16 value).
The frosty artisans at Sweet Confections Cakes bake and bedeck edible masterpieces daily using fine ingredients and eyes for presentation. Customers cull their half dozen specialty cupcakes from a parade of 12 peppy flavors including chai with cinnamon-bun icing, peanut-butter cup, and white-chocolate heaven. The spice cupcake sports a 'do of pumpkin mousse, strawberry cheesecake blushes prettily, and the maple-bacon cupcake endlessly ponders its delicious paradox.
Sweet Confections Cakes
For Darmayne Robinson, an off-the-wall cake-design request is nothing more than a chance to flex her creativity. With a cake as her canvas and icing as her palette, the owner of Sweet Confections Cakes can transform any item––including sports cars, high heels, and scuba divers––into a three-dimensional dessert. When it comes to the 3-D cake’s taste, however, clients take the creativity into their own hands, selecting from a list of more than 100 options that include white-almond cake and Italian wedding cake, and fillings such as french apple and peanut-butter mousse.
Each cake is made from scratch incorporating such high-quality ingredients as imported white chocolate, pure vanilla, real cream, and butter, and the staff can also bake gluten-free and vegan options upon request. Those without a design idea of their own can peruse Sweet Confections’ display room, where artsy cakes are showcased alongside a delectable selection of cupcakes, which can be sold solo, by the dozen, or sewn together as a giant cupcake cape.
