Baked by Melissa

Baked by Melissa is a great place to visit if you’re in New York City! They make adorable, itsy-bitsy, bite-sized cupcakes in the cutest flavors (like peanut butter and jelly, chocolate chip pancake, s’mores, and more!). The mini size makes them perfect because you can sample every flavor without feeling guilty (and without a heavy cupcake sitting in your stomach). They have six locations in the city. I visited the one at Grand Central, but now they ship nationwide so even if you’re not making a trip to NYC, you can still enjoy these cute little cupcakes! I think they would make a great gift for any lover of sweets (and lover of minatures!).

This is probaby the only way you can eat six cupcakes in one sitting and not feel guilty! My favorites were the chocolate chip pancake (you can taste the maple syrup!) and the peanut butter cup. They also have a mini of the month which switches throughout the year-it was New York Cream when I stopped in but unfortunately they were out at that moment. Guess I’ll have to go back! Darn…

    When I was in NYC last year I went to one of the locations! I really thought is was a cool idea! The tie dye ones are adorable. That is exciting that they ship now! I hope they are during well.
