Deprived of nourishment in the womb by stronger, full-size cakes, cupcakes have overcome their physical shortcomings by maintaining dignity, even when covered in sprinkles. Give a high-five to the little guy with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cupcakes, coffee, and more at Water Mill Cupcake Company in the Hamptons.
Founded by cousins Ruth and Cindy, Water Mill Cupcake Company greets customers with friendly smiles and a menu full of handmade treats. Each day, fresh eggs leap out of their shells into bowls brimming with organic sugar, unbleached flour, and butter straight from cows made of rainbows. Cylinder connoisseurs can acquire a quartet of cupcakes ($3 each), or experiment with more flavors by devouring the mini variety ($2 each). The devil’s food cupcake cuts a fiendish figure, dressed to the nines in gourmet chocolate and a cap of Madagascar–vanilla icing. Red velvet cupcakes laden with cocoa buttermilk give tasters the red carpet treatment, and a host of handmade frostings await spellbound taste buds, ranging from seasonal strawberry to vanilla maple syrup.
Water Mill Cupcake Company welcomes saccharine seekers with a cheery, intimate atmosphere and the aromas of fresh-brewed coffee and espresso, which can be purchased to wash down their decadent delectables. Large windows and friendly smiles from the bakers fill the room with sunshine, and notes of cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla dance through the air in time to soft-jazz tunes.
