What You'll Get
Ancient Egyptians held cake in such high esteem that they would replace a fallen pharaoh with a cake statue of his likeness that was allowed to rule for 90 days, or until peasants licked it to pieces. Feast upon the dessert of sweet, spongy royalty with today's deal: for $10, you get one six-inch custom cake at Tonna's Cakes, which is located downtown.
Tonna's Cakes specializes in sculpting custom cake-based masterpieces that are decorated to suit any occasion. Each handmade cake is a completely unique world of flavor, and no two cakes are alike. Tonna's frostings, ganaches, sugary sponges, and moist, made-from-scratch layers are all homemade and baked fresh, no matter which combination of the 22 flavors, eight fillings, and 10 types of frosting you request (see the sidebar for available options). Buttercream your way to glory over rolling red-velvet cakehills with green-fondant trees, or fill a spice cake with chocolate mousse and request a moose topper. If your artful imagination is clouded by your stomach's imagination, draw inspiration from Tonna's photo galleries. Each cake is as delicious as it is decorative, as Tonna designs and bakes her cakes to be lustily devoured, not propped up with sticks or made into cake puppets. Tonna also happily accepts special orders, such as dairy-free or gluten-free delights.
Cake is a magnificently transformative food. Social gatherings immediately become parties when centered around the life-giving rays of a cakestar, and stomachs become digestive fiestas full of sweet, delicious memories. Give someone the gift of delightful décor with today's Groupon, and don’t forget to snag a slice for yourself.
Due to the custom nature of the cakes, orders must be placed five to seven days before pick-up.
