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.
$7 for Four Cupcakes (Up to $14 Value)
Diners choose four cupcakes from a menu that's broken into two parts: seven flavors available every day (including chocolate/chocolate and red velvet), and three to five additional flavors available on a day-to-day basis. The shop chooses these rotating flavors from a roster of more than 20 options, including cookies and cream, strawberry shortcake, and snickerdoodle.
The Latest Crave
On a sunny afternoon spent wandering amid The Berry House Shops, you see a bright flash of green out of the corner of your eye. Intrigued, you turn to stare at a green awning speckled with pink polka dots shading a bright pink door and decide to see what lies inside. The eye-catching decor may have drawn you in, but it’s The Latest Crave’s rows of cupcakes topped with creamy peaks of frosting, stacks of english toffee, and clusters of frosting shots that make you want to stay.
Shop owners Elaine and Nancy craft these confections using their original recipes, which detail how to make both milk- and dark-chocolate toffees and cupcakes in a variety of sizes. More than two dozen cupcake flavors including such varieties as cookies 'n' cream and strawberry shortcake to key lime and peanut butter and jelly, rotate throughout the month, and additional seasonal flavors, such as pumpkin and gingerbread, make an appearance when their ingredients are freshest.
Some of the cupcakes they create sound as extravagant as a limo made from dinosaur bones; witness the Jack-n-Jill, a milk-chocolate cupcake stuffed with a marshmallow and topped with a hardened layer of chocolate ganache. Even more innovative are the frosting shots—petite chocolate cups brimming with irish-cream, piña-colada, and marshmallow-infused buttercream frostings.
