Without tiered wedding cakes, tiny models of brides and grooms could not get a clear view of wedding ceremonies. Sweeten your special day with today’s Groupon to Sweet Melissa Patisserie with two locations in Brooklyn. Choose between the following options:
- For $24, you get tea service for two (a $49.90 value).
- For $500, you get $1,000 worth of wedding cake.
The bakers at Sweet Melissa Patisserie have drawn acclaim from the New York Times for a combination of fresh French-influenced American pastries and epic wedding cakes. During the afternoon tea service, twosomes enjoy a choice of fine teas served with a fresh scone, delicate finger sandwiches, and petit fours in the softly lit pastry-filled shop. Tea sippers can stretch pinky fingers at four-top tables with flower centerpieces or in the lush fenced-in garden outside, where shady umbrellas shield them from the untoward leering of dandies in passing zeppelins.
The expert pastry architects also craft custom wedding confections from readily personalized cakes, fillings, and frostings ($10/slice for 100 people or more). Options include vanilla cake with lemon-curd filling and lemon-buttercream frosting, as well as a devil’s food cake, which tempts diners with old-fashioned buttercream filling, frosting, and a promise of the ability to fly.
