Baked by Melissa - Mini Stuffed Cupcakes
Baked by Melissa - 529 Broadway, New York NY 10012
6 Train to Spring Street
While in Soho yesterday, my brother Peter and I noticed a cute cupcake take-out counter called Baked by Melissa. We were immediately drawn to it, as the cupcakes were adorably small and featured seven interesting flavors: cookie dough, red velvet, cookies & cream, s'mores, peanut butter & jelly, peanut butter cup and tie-dye. They were all so cute and looked so yummy that we got a box of six, omitting only the tie-dye--it looked too artificial and I wasn't curious about what tie-dye flavor would taste like.
Peter and I had two cupcakes each, and the remainder we shared with Dan and Peter's girlfriend, Fiana. We were all impressed, especially with how much bank you get for your buck. Even though the cupcakes were tiny, they offered the perfect amount of flavor to give you that sweet fix. The frosting was very delicious and plentiful, making them feel more substantial than they actually were. The dough was lovely--soft, moist, sweet, and I'd go as far as to say that it was on par with Crumbs.
These teensy treasures come at a premium, but they're worth every penny. The quality is excellent and you get what pay for--delicious, luxurious mini cupcakes without all the guilt.
