food & grocery: Frugal Friday at Glee Cake & Pastry - satisfy your sweet tooth for less than $5

And so, when you can relish decadent treats like these for less than $5 per person, Glee Cake & Pastry is a natural fit for Frugal Floozie Friday!
There are so many treats to choose from: cupcakes, dessert bars, slices of tortes or cakes... sigh. I wandered back and forth from one display case to another (there are three); and instead of narrowing down my list of options, each time I considered my choices my list grew longer.

I debated among the Peanut Butter and Ganache cupcake, the coconut-topped Toasted Mounds variety, and the Death by Chocolate (no surprise to learn this is the shop's best seller). But I succumbed ultimately to the Salted Butterscotch cupcake pictured at the top of the post — salty, sweet, and sublime.
Cupcakes cost $3 each — well within our mandatory Frugal Floozie Friday budget of $5 or less per person; but if you buy two or more, they are only $2.75. Slices of elegant, sophisticated, luscious cakes and tortes cost $4.25; and cookies, brownies, or bars range from 75 cents to $3 each.
Even better, if you visit Glee on a Sunday you can enjoy Happy Hour prices: from noon-5 p.m., "all items in the case are half off!"
Whether you're looking to enjoy treats for a special occasion, or just want a little something sweet "just because," be sure to stop by Glee's shop for wonderful items.
