Though less devastating than banana-cream pies, cupcakes still provide effective suppressive fire during fancy dinner-party food fights attended by Larry, Curly, and/or Moe. Today's Groupon lets you lock and load with this smile-inducing ammunition: for $5, you get four standard gourmet cupcakes (a $10 value) at The Cupcake Corner in Garden City.
In addition to seasonally inspired mini-cakes, The Cupcake Corner's bakers raise 18 signature cupcake varieties every day. Permanent fixtures include creamy chocolate peanut butter, breakfasty French toast with bacon, and cookies and cream, as well as lighter lovelies such as lemon coconut, vanilla, and classic carrot cake. For diners who desire sweetness without wheatness, The Cupcake Corner churns out flourless, gluten-free flavors as well.
Driven by the dynamic confectionary duo of Lisa Romero and Lora Tusa, two graduates of The Institute of Culinary Education in New York City, The Cupcake Corner cooks up more than just cupcakes. Though not included in today's Groupon, the shop does distribute delicious individual pies ($3.25), normal-sized brownies ($1.50), and suspiciously large yet sufficiently complementary cups of coffee ($2.25).
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.
