I was walking to Penn Station after a pet event last night and their bright, clean and cheery looking all-glass window store front in mid-town Manhattan, caught my eye. At first I didn’t know what the store was selling, but whatever it was, it looked really cool. I was delighted to find out it was cupcakes!
They are the perfect two-bite dessert that you don’t feel completely guilty about eating. Sometimes those large cupcakes are just too much, even if you’re splitting it with someone.
These cupcakes are also not too sweet, but still flavorful. I think my favorites was the cinnamon, which tasted like a creamy, rich coffee drink and the cookies and cream (pictured above). What’s also pretty neat is they have a handy guide you can take with you that tell you what each flavor is. The only disappointing part is that they don’t have specific vegan or gluten-free cupcakes.
Baked By Melissa has several locations in New York and also ships nationwide. So, even if you’re not in Manhattan, you can enjoy their yummy flavor. They would make wonderful thank you or birthday gifts.
