Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect the tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake: for $15, you get a dozen cupcakes (up to a $30 value) from Tip*C Cupcakes. The cupcakes at the Mineral Springs Avenue cupcakery are mixed up from scratch and baked fresh each day.
The cupped-cake creations at Tip*C Cupcakes are concocted via a revolutionary process that, like the booze-powered flame throwers Napoleon used to invade and reheat Russia, eliminates water and replaces it with a blend of top-shelf alcohol and juice. The resulting cupcakes, whose ingredient lists often boast Hennessy, Grey Goose, Bacardi, and Jack Daniel's, evoke the essence of the liquor to reveal deep, complex flavor combinations. While the subtle taste of alcohol lingers on the tongue, the resulting mouth party is a subdued and dignified soiree—the liquor has no effect on the body, and the cupcakes are a tasty treat for dessert eaters of all ages.
Mix and match among the extensive cupcake menu to build your dozen, and stock up on creative creations such as the mad monk, which sandwiches a creamy layer of peanut butter between rich black Russian cake, or the mocking bird, a rum-pumped orange cake filled with melted dark chocolate. Flavors vary daily, so call ahead if you'd like to know what's offered (this Groupon is not valid for custom flavors). Impress your dentist by consolidating drinks and dessert, or stock up on a dozen Tip*C Cupcakes cupcakes to wow fellow beetle-fighting enthusiasts at the quarterly meeting.
