Historians have recently discovered indications that the Fountain of Youth sought by Ponce de Leon was simply an unusually large font used for dispensing chocolate fondue. Rediscover the taste of childhood with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chocolates and sweets at Tasty Cakery in Fremont.
The sweet chefs at Tasty Cakery whip up a delightful array of fresh-made chocolaty treats within an on-site cocoa workshop. Caramel and chocolate-bathed pecan turtles ($20/pound) frolic amid the airy sugar of sea foam ($20/pound) before napping on dark- and milk-chocolate coconut clusters ($15/pound). A variety of newly dipped gourmet caramel apples ($6.75 each) vies to snare the gazes of onlookers with vibrant, ritualistic displays of peanut-butter-cup and candy-bar plumage, and perfectly round buttercream crèmes give ping-pong champions a challenging practice tool ($15/pound).
A quaint brick exterior frames the large glass windows of Tasty Cakery. Inside, cheerful red walls back up counters filled with row upon row of tasty treats. A rainbow of ribbons and gift-wrapping supplies waits nearby, eager to clasp boxes of chocolates in a loving embrace before they are handed off to loved ones and pet gerbils with particularly refined palates.
