Cups provide containment for life-sustaining water, protect tender nether regions, and allow eavesdropping through walls. Combine these benefits with the scrumptiousness of cake and alcohol with today's Groupon to Tip*C Cupcakes in North Providence. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get a half-dozen alcohol-enhanced or non-alcoholic cupcakes (up to a $15 value).
- For $11, you get a dozen alcohol-enhanced or non-alcoholic cupcakes (up to a $30 value).
Playing mad scientist with both pastries and palliatives, Tip*C animates its often-arid namesake with alcohol infusions, adding extra bliss to bite-sized desserts. The bakery's flavor-synergizing shamans craft all edibles from scratch and have been known to showcase concoctions as outlandish as the Chocolate Patron, a mix of Patron XO, vodka, and chocolate cake; the Devil's Red Velvet, a dervish of Godiva liquor, crème de cacao, and red velvet cake; and the red wine, infused with cream sherry, red wine, and aloofness. Although tastes of alcohol tickle partakers' tongues with each bite, mouth parties hosted by Tip*C are subdued and dignified soirees—the included liquor has no effect on the body, and the marinated mouthfuls are appropriate for all ages.
Those opposed to the symbiosis of spirits and sweets may opt for more innocent cupcakes. Cocktail-free sugar fixes come in flavors such as vanilla, green tea, and lemon-filled raspberry, perfect for capping a dinner party or tossing at an uncle's mouth after his ballet recital.
