Baked by Melissa has been a cupcake sensation for the past few years. The particularity of these cupcakes is that they are bite size and paperless. Each of them costs $1 (time of this post). They also offer the possibility of creating your own, but for this, you will need to order 300 of them!
The place was opened by Melissa Bushell and her partners, after she lost her job in advertising. Since it opened in 2009, several stores were added and Baked by Melissa has become a reference for cupcakes.
So we decided to try some of them. We picked 12 cupcakes (6 different varieties) for $10. Smartly, they put them in a box with holes to hold the cupcakes. That way, they do not dance in the box while you are walking!
The Tie dye, made of vanilla Tie Dye cake, vanilla icing and topped with rainbow sugar crystals. It was just ok.
So, at the end of the day, it was an ok experience: out of 6 cupcakes, I like 3 (the cookies & cream, the cinnamon and the S'mores). The cake was pretty inconsistent, sometimes moist, sometimes dry and there was clearly not enough icing. They were also quite sugary. These cupcakes are nice to try and cute to look at, but they are definitely not the best (Sweet in Hoboken is definitely the best!).
Enjoy (I half did)!
