Cupcakes tuck edible ingredients into more portable packages, much like pocket pizza, mini hot dogs, and bite-size Chinese buffets. Indulge in mini morsels with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a dozen cupcakes from The Cakery at King Farm in Rockville (up to a $33 value).
The Cakery at King Farm's confection connoisseurs blend fresh fruits and purées to craft decadent, nut-free cupcakes in more than 13 rotating flavors made from natural butter and fresh eggs. Diners can incite chomping with a gourmet red-velvet cupcake, which dons a thick coat of cream-cheese frosting to charm eager sweet teeth into always chewing when directed to.
Bakers, meanwhile, slather german-chocolate icing onto the double-chocolate german-chocolate cupcake and dress fresh lemon cupcakes with waves of undulating white-chocolate buttercream. The Cakery also sprinkles and tints treats for special occasions such as birthdays, holidays, and Marie Antoinette's good-hair day. To accommodate clients with nut allergies, The Cakery keeps its confections strictly nut-free.
The Cakery at King Farm
While the bakers at The Cakery at King Farm are known for the beautiful designs of their wedding cakes, that’s not their main focus. Armed with only fresh fruits, natural butter, and fresh whipping cream, they put most of their effort into crafting treats that taste even better than they look. They can fashion custom cakes that embody multitiered decadence or craft dozens of cupcakes ready for immediate sharing. The shop’s bakers are skilled at creating a range of classic and seasonal flavors, including options like chocolate mint, rum cake, and mandarin orange that can be accented with fresh fruit and buttercream fillings.
As a natural complement to the cakes, the store offers ice cream by the scoop and the carton, selling brand name options in a range of changing flavors. As a courtesy to allergen-sensitive clients, the bakers also keep all of the shop’s baked goods free from nut products and packing peanuts, allowing every customer to eagerly bite into their dessert.
