Cupcakes are everything great about full-size cakes but are smaller and come in a free wrapper, which looks like a tiny coffee filter and will make your desk smell like cake for two days. Appreciate the little things with this Groupon.
$149 for One-Week Kids’ Camp ($295 Value)
The Cupcake Corner’s kids’ camp is for kids aged 4–11. With eight themed sessions through July and August, it runs 10:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday except for the week of July 4, when it runs Monday through Wednesday; see the schedule here. At camp, kids engage their noggins as they craft tie-dye shirts, candy-wrapper purses, and bottle-cap necklaces. They also romp in the private garden while playing outdoor games and dancing, and they keep fueled for fun with nutritious lunches.
The Cupcake Corner
As the sun rises each morning, chefs Lisa Romero and Lora Tusa are already awake and toiling in The Cupcake Corner's kitchen, crafting batches of artisan cupcakes, cakes, and baked goods. They whip together more than 30 regular cupcake flavors, such as cotton candy and french toast with bacon, and dream up a new flavor each week baked with high-quality ingredients such as Vahlrona cocoa and Cacao Barry chocolate. The miniature delicacies pair splendidly with handcrafted ice creams in flavors such as butter pecan and steamy beverages including Colombian coffee, caramel lattes, and Harvey & Sons teas. For breakfast, the chefs bake up english scones and muffins, and lunchtime yields sandwiches on bagels and croissants.
Across the street stands their 1,500-square-foot shin-dig space, where upbeat staffers host birthday parties, bridal showers, and other special events. Personalized activities, such as jewelry-making, karaoke, and impromptu cupcake fights, make events all the more memorable.
