Mini Cupcakes at Baked by Melissa

I decided to walk home from work the other day through SOHO and stumbled across Baked by Melissa on Spring Street. I had heard about this little cupcake stop before from a friend so I decided to sample some of its offerings.

Baked is basically just a pick-up window that sells about ten different varieties of frosted miniature cupcakes. You pick out the flavors you want, pay the woman and then find some place discreet nearby to enjoy your treats. Or you can just pay the woman, walk two steps and devour the goodies before you reach the end of the block- it’s up to you. I choose to do the latter :)

Baked sells it’s cupcakes for $1 a piece, which is pretty expensive considering they are just slightly larger then the size of a quarter. However I love the fact that they are so small you can try out a bunch of different flavors without feeling super guilty about all that sugar.

Today I sampled the Peanut Butter Cup and the Cookie Dough.

First up was the Cookie Dough. On first bite I was struck by how much awesome fudgy flavor this little guy packed in. This was some intense chocolate frosting! The yellow cake was light and moist and the cookie dough, while slightly too sugary, was in a good ratio to the rest of the cake.

The Peanut Butter Cup shocked me at the first bite as well. The Peanut Butter frosting was so intense! For such a little amount of icing on a rich cake the flavor really shined through.

Overall I enjoyed both of my cupcakes. I would definitely come back to try out some of the other flavors. They had a Rocky Road and a Tie- Dye Cupcake that looked absolutely scrumptious.
