Some things, such as cakes and dentist hands, are better small. Eat the superior version of a cake with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a half-dozen cake pops at Sweet Sixteen Cafe in Lockport (up to a $12 value).
Winners of the 2011 People's Choice Award at the Taste of Lockport, the family-owned-and-operated Sweet Sixteen Cafe keeps home ovens idle by supplying dessert devotees with fresh, homemade pastries, cookies, and signature cakes. Whether celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, or a state-wide ban on silverware, cake pops provide a stick-based treat ideal for portable snacking. The moist morsels come in a variety of signature flavors, such as red velvet embraced by fluffy cream-cheese icing, decadently doubled double chocolate fudge, and the birthday-cake-flavored creamsicle.
Cake pops can be custom-made to order, so peckish patrons should call or visit the shop in advance. Tote the sextet of sweet suckers home in a bouquet-like bunch, or devour them on the spot amidst the café's chic and cheerful décor, letting the odor of homemade baked goods transport you to hours spent in your grandmother’s kitchen or crouched underneath the neighbor's windowsill, awaiting freshly baked pies.
