Cupcake of the Week: Baked By Melissa
It's been a while since I did a cupcake of the week. I was starting to think the trend of trendy cupcakes was dying out. But not at Baked By Melissa.
I found this tiny take-out window on Spring Street, just west of Broadway, serving up some amazing little cupcakes. Melissa's speciality is girl-sized cupcakes that taste great but don't induce a huge amount of guilt. I was immediately drawn to the chocolate/peanut butter cupcake with a shard of Reese's sticking out the top. Whoa--it was amazing, if a little small for me. (No girlish guilt here...I'm skinny!) So speaking for myself, one is not enough.
Anyway, there are 9 flavors total so I do want to go back for cinnamon, cookies/cream and maybe PBJ. Also, Melissa has a new store that just opened on 14th, west of Union Square. You can also order online too but they only deliver to NYC.
