Three Things to Know About The Cake Shop
Sure, it’s called The Cake Shop, but the namesake confection is hardly the only thing filling its dessert cases. Read more about each of the five delicious desserts created at this finalist for The Taste of Groupon Awards:
Cupcakes: With exquisite petals of colorful frosting, a dozen of these artisanal sweets looks more like a bouquet of flowers. Try them in regular or mini sizes.
Cookies: Probably The Cake Shop’s most adorable offering. Kid-friendly versions are decorated to look like cartoon characters and baby animals.
Macarons: A whole rainbow of them in neon and pastel hues.
Cake pops: Whether disguised as lollipops or ice-cream cones, these are almost too cute to eat.
Cakes, of course: The special-occasion cakes in particular are the stuff of dreams. The Cake Shop’s bakers can use fondant to build cakes inspired by sports teams, animated movies, and even a favorite pet, or use traditional buttercream frosting to create understated but equally impressive effects, such as ombré shading.
