Birthday parties began as an excuse for family and friends to show off chic wrapping-paper designs and then to serenade a newborn cake. Croon a culinary canto with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of desserts and baked goods at The Cake Company in Canyon.
The Cake Company merges milk, eggs, and sugar into an assortment of luscious desserts, earning the Best Cakes award from Amarillo CityVoter in 2009. Surrounded by the storefront's colorful décor, nibble edible art such as cake pops ($16/dozen), dipped pretzels ($15/dozen), and scones ($24/dozen). Flavorful 9-inch single specialty cakes ($20–$23+) including german chocolate, key lime, piña colada, and snickerdoodle tussle for circular supremacy with The Cake Company's large 12-inch cookies ($20–$25). Crafty customers can also use their Groupon toward custom shaped cakes ($39+) to see a family crest intricately rendered in frosting or bite into a cell phone without accidentally calling Mom.
The Cake Company
Helmed by owner and cake artist Mandy Williams, The Cake Company unfurls a fresh panoply of cookies, brownies, and fetching customized cakes. Peanut-butter or snickerdoodle cookies strut around plates next to their gargantuan cousins, the 12-inch or 16-inch chocolate-chip cookies. Cake-smiths set up private consultations for prospective brides and grooms, wherein couples taste their way through six samples before collaborating on the design for their perfect wedding cake. The pastry architects commemorate other special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or finally figuring out how to ride two bikes at once with specialty cakes adorned with colorful buttercream or fondant arranged into clever designs, such as a lighthouse, a giant cupcake, or a spray-paint can.
