Whereas ice cream is a byproduct of milk, which is milked from cows, sprinkles are a byproduct of dreams, which are milked from fairies. Lap up a fantastical dessert with this Groupon.
$35 for Two Dozen Strawberry Cake Pops and Shipping ($80 Value)
One dozen strawberry cake pops dipped in milk chocolate and one dozen dipped in dark chocolate, all decorated to look like vine-ripened strawberries, arrive on doorsteps.
When chemistry grad Janice Kacheline collided with health-administration guru Megan Linden, the two created a confectionery chain reaction that would one day culminate in the petite gourmet cakes of Wicked Confections. Janice and Megan handcraft each dessert as orders roll in, sculpting batter in a mélange of flavors such as snickerdoodle and peanut-butter cup. Drawing on Megan’s bartending background, the duo also whips up alcohol-infused cakes, ranging from the decadent twisted stout to a Cosmo cake inspired by the show Sex and the City. Drivers with flour-dappled faces rush past toting boxes of confections, which help fuel birthday cheers at parties or busy the mouths of nosy zookeepers on the witness stand.
