Though often compared to its peer, the pie, cake deviates from its crusted compatriots by way of frosted tops and dissociation from clowns. Toss the pie and eat the cake with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sweet treats at The Icing & The Cake in Mooresville.
Colorful displays and artfully sculpted cakes welcome guests to The Icing & The Cake's storefront, in which trained cake tailors inflect fresh custom desserts and dainty specialties with creativity and homey comfort. Cupcakes, like most circuit court juries, arrive in sets of one dozen—or as a solitary, frosted defendant—and come in a rotating selection of flavors that may include chocolate-fudge cake with ganache icing or carrot cake with buttercream ($2.50–$3 each). Cake balls are baked into shareable, bite-size orbs, ensconced in a delicate drizzle of icing and a colored chocolate coating ($24 for one dozen). The Icing & The Cake also prepares custom cakes for weddings, birthdays, and Arbor Day festivities year-round.
