Cupcakes, like presents, are usually wrapped in paper, appear at birthday parties, and leave you wanting more after eating them. Treat yourself with this Groupon.

It's 3:30 a.m., and Nycole Donelson, co-owner of Short Cakes Cakery with her husband Derrick Donelson, is already hard at work. She's at her bakery, firing up the ovens and filling them with cups of fresh batter from a repertoire of more than 50 unusual flavors. This is the daily routine. Nycole wants everything to be perfect.
The Donelsons began their business not with cupcakes, but with a simple fruit tea recipe. The tea became so popular among the duo's co-workers and friends that they decided to bottle it and sell itall from within their own homeand coined it Deep South Fruit Tea.
To pair with the tea, Nycole began baking gourmet cupcakes in flavors inspired by sweet potato pies, cheesecakes, and favorite childhood candies, such as grape now-and-laters. Nycole's personal favorite is the shortcake cupcake, with a pound cake base, Swiss meringue vanilla buttercream frosting, fresh strawberry glaze, and caramel drizzle. The handheld desserts also quickly took off, so the Donelsons decided to open their own bakery, where they continue to use only real butter and no preservatives.
Inside the bakery, electric purple and asparagus-like paint colors wash the walls, adding a bright contrast to the black and white floor tiles. Cupcake cutouts swing from the ceiling, and glass bakery cases display the day's edible wares and bottles of sweetened or unsweetened Deep South Fruit Tea, made with 100 percent real fruit juice and regular, unregular, decaf, or green tea.
