Though less devastating than banana-cream pies, cupcakes still provide effective suppressive fire during fancy dinner-party food fights attended by Larry, Curly, and/or Moe. Today's Groupon lets you lock and load with this smile-inducing ammunition: for $7, you get six cupcakes from Unique Cakes and Fine Desserts, a $15.50 value including delivery to Raleigh, Cary, Garner, and Wake Forest (delivery to other areas may be subject to extra charge). Cupcakes may be delivered or picked up 24 hours after ordering. Half-dozen orders are limited to one flavor/frosting combination.
For 15 years, Unique Cakes' home-style baked goods have sated sweet teeth with classic flavors crafted from premium ingredients. Just like full-grown cakes, Unique Cake's teacup breeds are chocked full of the creamiest creams, butteriest butters, and extractiest extracts. Miniature-cake eaters can procure these rounded petit fours in traditional palate-pleasing flavors such as yellow (butter-nut), white (vanilla), chocolate, triple chocolate, and marble (yellow-chocolate swirl). More-exotic taste-bud temptations include cinnamon-laden spice; a light, summery lemon; rich coconut; and the decadent southern staple, red velvet. While some may appreciate the clean-lined, Bauhaus aesthetic of an unadorned cupcake, most desserteers enjoy their 'cakes slathered in frosting. Unique Cakes plops a dollop of chocolate or vanilla buttercream on each and every cupcake ($1.75 each), so feel free to experiment with wild, sugar-rushing flavor combinations such as triple-chocolate cake topped with even more chocolate or an oven-fresh Mounds Bar facsimile of coconut cake and chocolate frosting. Grab today's Groupon for a half-dozen of these delicate desserts, or buy two and use the bounty to realize your utopian vision of an edible Ziggurat.
