Poetry would be entirely composed of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods at The Cake Company in Canyon.
Especially renowned for the shaped cakes they create for weddings and events, bakers at The Cake Company also satisfy dessert-seekers with their extensive menu of fresh-baked cookies, bars, and sweet snacks. Gobblers can chow down on classics like snickerdoodles, Aeschylus texts, M&M's cookies, and oatmeal cookies with or without raisins ($0.50 each; $5.50/dozen). To get in touch with their sweet sides, salt-speckled pretzel rods bravely ford chocolate rivers before they're subjected to a sprinkle of rainbow candy ($1.25 each; $15/dozen). Put today's Groupon toward commissioning one of The Cake Company's signature cakes to cheer up frowning forks with ornate patterns, real flowers, and edible sculptures such as pirate ships ($15+).
The Cake Company requests at least three weeks' notice for tiered and sculpted cakes.
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.
