Cupcakes are a preferable alternative to birthday cakes, whose constant accompaniment by off-key singing has depleted the planet’s finite supply of forced smiles. Garner genuine grins with today’s Groupon to The Cakehole, located inside The Marott at 2625 North Meridian Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $16, you get one-dozen specialty cupcakes (up to a $36 value).
- For $42, you get three-dozen specialty cupcakes (up to a $108 value).
The Cakehole’s skilled confectioners whip up more than 20 different flavors of gourmet cupcakes. Each cakey morsel is made entirely from scratch from the frosting down, ensuring a freshness rarely seen in store-bought cupcakes or those whittled out of wood. Classic flavors such as french vanilla, carrot, and red velvet serve as tasty traditional treats for pastry purists, whereas buttermilk chocolate or white almond sour cream add a sophisticated air to any after-dinner soiree. Extra epicurean varieties (available for a $3 fee) such as eggnog and turtle can be nabbed to impress holiday houseguests or selective houseplants with an especially decadent dessert. Or, prolong summer's sweetness indefinitely by upgrading to strawberry-lemonade or raspberry-lemonade cupcakes.
Operating out of the kitchen of an Episcopal church, the talented bakers at The Cakehole offer only customized, made-to-order treats. Their sucrose skills allow them to replicate stills from a movie for Oscar-themed cupcake trays or create a whole nest of Angry Birds-adorned cupcakes. Armed with sugar, water, and dye, bakers create decorative, multi-tiered cake art emblazoned with characters and themes from pop culture, comic books, and outdated tax codes. They can also fuse cakes and cupcakes together for a full mise en scéne, such as a zombie-themed wedding cake with accompanying cupcakes topped with tiny gum paste body parts.
