Before cupcake pans, personalized dessert portions were made by baking full-size cakes and shrinking them in the dryer. Skip extra steps with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cupcakes and bakery treats at Sweet Things Cupcake Shoppe.
Sweet Things Cupcake Shoppe's confectioner duo crafts a profusion of fresh-baked cupcakes in a score of signature varieties. Mainstay cupcakes, such as Lisa's Lemondrops, lemon cake with lemon frosting; Crisp's Coconuts, coconut cake with cream-cheese frosting; and Cami's Confetti, french-vanilla cake with buttercream frosting, sate sweet cravings with gourmet flavors every day ($2.99 for 1; $16.99 for a half dozen). Like the gears of an e-calendar, several flavors rotate throughout the week, including Mei Mei's Mandarin, an orange cupcake available Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and Mika's Mochas, a chocolate-espresso cake available on Thursday and Sunday. A single scoop of hand-packed ice cream soothes hot taste buds ($1.99) and a brownie sundae excites appetites more easily than an edible piñata ($4.99). Iced teas, flavored coffees, and energy drinks wash down hearty helpings and keep mouths moist for second servings.
Sweet Things Cupcake Shoppe
Sweet Things Cupcake Shoppe was founded by two working moms who escaped the corporate grind by converting their part-time love of baking into a full-time career. Cupcakes are baked fresh each day in the duo's Foothills Mall storefront, where the rotating selection of flavors includes options such as lemon drop with creamy lemon frosting, pumpkin with cream-cheese frosting, and french vanilla with rich buttercream. Featured alongside the shop's selection of coffees and ice creams, each tiny cake boasts its own delicious design, as well as a sweet, unique name inspired by the owner's family members and favorite TV weathermen.
