What You'll Get
Cakes can be difficult to transport because of their size, frosted edges, and irrational fear of bakery boxes. Pick up a more portable confection with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get a half-dozen gourmet cupcakes at The Cupcakerie (a $16 value) in Cranston.
The Cupcakerie offers traditional and seasonal gourmet cupcake flavors made using locally grown ingredients. Treat sweet-deprived taste buds to an Old Fashioned vanilla minicake, or try more creative confections such as the Wake Up and Smell the Cupcake, a mocha cake topped with espresso cream-cheese frosting, or the Velvet Elvis, a red-velvet cake topped with cream-cheese frosting and sparkling sequins. Lactose-intolerant indulgers can please palettes with the Vegan, which features nondairy chocolate cake frosted with organic vanilla-bean "butter" cream. Gluten-free cupcakes are also available for an extra fee. Cupcake technology has advanced exponentially since frosting was ham-fistedly blasted by artillery cannon into cake-lined fields. Shedding cloying ammunition for high-powered mixers, today's Groupon to The Cupcakerie offers a convenient way to hand-catapult cup-sized cakes over tooth-walls.
The Cupcakerie has more than 950 Facebook fans.
