Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-sized cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $11, you get a dessert sampler—including four cupcakes (a $13 value), two black-and-white cookies (a $5 value), and two brownies (a $5 value)—at Sweet & Social in Larchmont (a $23 total value).
Nestled below a fanciful awning bearing stripes of pink grapefruit and fudge, the bakers at Sweet & Social welcome sugar-craving smiles to explore the treats holding down the dessert sampler. To create a platter of fresh-baked delights, first select four cupcakes from the flavors du jour, with offerings ranging from classic red velvet to more creative concoctions with equally creative names. The Curious George wraps banana custard in a warm blanket of vanilla cake, then throws on a hat of chocolate ganache to hide its bald head smothered with peanut-butter-buttercream re-growth serum. The 14 Karat cupcake offers to accessorize any drab orange jumpsuit, hiding golden carrot in a vanilla-cream-cheese chest among walnut jewels. After juggling a foursome of frosted crumb bundles, rest your hands atop two soft chocolate brownies and refuel with two black-and-white cookies.
