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 Clever Cupcakes in Coquitlam. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of cupcakes.

The Clever Cupcakes’ ensemble of confectioners bakes fresh batches of their eponymous treat in-house daily, forging each cupcake from all-natural, nut-, additive-, and preservative-free ingredients, producing treats with half the sugar of regular cupcakes. Available in big cupcake ($7) and mini-cupcake sizes ($1.25 each; $13 for a dozen), flavours including a mango-vanilla cake base wear, like King Henry VIII, a crown of cream-cheese icing. Buttercream-vanilla frosting perches atop a base of chocolate-mint cake, and carrot and pineapple come together under a dollop of cream-cheese icing. A giant cupcake ($35) defies the world’s expectations of what a cupcake should be, requiring a fork and knife or unhingeable jaw for proper enjoyment. Alternatively a choir of cupcakes serenades sweet teeth with 12- and 24-part harmonies.
