Baked by Melissa

Happy 1st day of September! 
Just 23 days left until the first day of Fall and I am so excited. Not only does that mean cooler weather but also the beautiful transformation of Central Park. I get to walk through Central Park and take in all the beautiful colors!! But before I get ahead of myself we still have to bid farewell to a very sweet Summer which has been full of lots of fun adventures and sweet, yummy treats. Meaning lots of cupcakes from different places :)

 About 2 weeks ago (Aug 19,2011 to be exact) we ventured down to the Times Square area in hopes of enjoying some cupcakes from Baked by Melissa. Before I continue you must understand that these are not your ordinary everyday cupcakes. These are itty bitty cupcakes, meaning they are literally the size of a quarter, but they are so delicious and full of yummy fillings. 

So many itty bitty cupcakes! Which ones to choose?? You can see how ecstatic Miguelito was to see so many cupcakes :)
Once we got to the store I could not decide on one flavor, they have 11 flavors, including the Mini of The Month which changes every month. So I did the next best thing, I ordered 12 minis for Miguelito, my Mom and me! We shared itty bitty bites of our choices with each other and OMG were they heavenly!!! They were so good that Miguelito has asked us that instead of buying a birthday cake for his birthday on Monday, if we could get him 50 mini cupcakes along with me baking him a cake at home instead :)

Miguelito such a happy child :)
Flavors left to right:
1st Row: Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Pancake, Tie-Dye, Mini of the month - Pink Lemonade
2nd Row: Cookies & Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Red Velvet, Pink Lemonade
3rd Row: Cinnamon, Smores, Peanut Butter Cup, Peanut Butter & Jelly

They were all delicious but I have to say that my favorite flavors were the Mint Chocolate Chip - which consist of chocolate cake,chocolate cookie filling, mint icing, and chocolate chips, the Cinnamon - yellow cake, cinnamon filling, vanilla icing, and cinnamon sugar topping, the Chocolate Chip Pancake - yellow pancake, maple syrup icing, and chocolate chips, and last but not least the Tie - Dye - vanilla cake, and vanilla icing!

So you see never judge something by it's size, you could be missing out on some out of this world deliciousness!
Oh and dear friends I do promise to take every single one of you to Baked By Melissa when you visit me in New York - that includes you Darling Claire :)

  2. P.S. Sorry I realised you asked a question on my blog. That little Postcard looking pencil case was from a stationery store called Typo. Unfortunately they don't sell that style anymore :( Or I would have gotten you one.
