Review: Baked by Melissa

I got quite a few recommendations to visit Baked By Melissa, so I made it a priority on my list during my time in New York. Baked By Melissa has four locations in New York City and I visited the Fashion District one.




Baked By Melissa is a unique cupcake shop, in that they only sell mini cupcakes. But these mini cupcakes were different than any I've seen before because they had a smaller base than normal. They reminded me of muffin tops.




Since these were mini cupcakes, I decided to get one of each! I actually love this because I got the chance to try all of them and didn't feel sick to my stomach.




Flavors (L-R, T-B): Cookies & Cream, Cinnamon, Mint Chocolate Chip, Rice Crispy Treat (flavor of the month), Tie-Dye, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter Cup, Red Velvet (again), Chocolate Chip Pancake, S'mores, Cookie Dough.




Highlights: I loved the salty flavor that the maple syrup brought to the Chocolate Chip Pancake cupcake. The Cinnamon tasted just like a yummy cinnamon streusel cake. The frosting on the Red Velvet had a strong cream cheese flavor. The Peanut Butter Cup tasted just like a melted Reese's. My favorite was the Mint Chocolate Chip which tasted just like my mom's mint brownies. Yum!

Lowlights: There wasn't enough frosting on some of the cupcakes. The Rice Crispy Treat needed to have a fresher treat on top. As you can see, I really didn't have any negative things to say about Baked By Melissa's cupcakes.

I loved the cupcakes from Baked By Melissa! I love that they were small so I could eat all of them. I loved the different flavors. The cake was moist and the frostings were flavorful. The cupcakes start at $1 each, but go down as you order more. My 12 cupcakes cost $10. One of the best parts about New York cupcake shops is that they are open late. Baked By Melissa is open until 10pm on weekdays and 11pm on weekends. I would definitely recommend Baked By Melissa to anyone visiting New York City.

I have to say I didn't like Baked by Melissa at all. I thought they were expensive ($1 per cupcake which is one bite) and mine tasted stale

Overpriced crumbs, who in their right mind would pay for this??? Are they magic crumbs? $1 for what cannot be called a cupcake is highway robbery!!!
