The Sweet Spot Cupcakery’s husband-and-wife owners Polly and Ysidoro Martinez invent and assemble 24 flavors of contained confection inside a pink-and-white cake parlor. Rich aromas of butter, sugar, and spices waft from hidden ovens as batter swells into classic crumb varieties ranging from pure vanilla to tender red velvet tributes to Elvis. Nimble hands complement vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry cakes with six fluffy permutations of buttercream frosting, while fringe cake flavors such as tart lemon and dark german chocolate hide under decorative glazes depicting billiard balls or the friendly mugs of Yo Gabba Gabba characters. Beverages, such as cold glasses of milk ($0.79), wash down sweet treats while doubling as a swimming pool for action figures (not included with today's deal). A party room stands at the ready to enable sugar-filled birthday fetes, decorated with a colorful cartoon mural illustrating proper tea party protocol.
