baked by melissa mini's

my friend kristin had been going on and on about baked by melissa in nyc, so we finally went last time I was in town. they sell mini cupcakes about the size of a quarter. and the place where they bake & sell them doesn't seem to be much larger; it's literally just a counter. but these mini cupcakes are the best mini cupcakes I've ever had in my life. the problem is, you aren't satisfied with just one or two... or three. but at a buck a piece, you'd better save your allowance if you want to feel full.

we tried the peanut butter & jelly, cookie dough, smores & tie-dye. they were all amazing.

chocolate pink

I was in atlanta last weekend visiting my sweet sister. after hearing several recommendations for chocolate pink we figured we should check it out. it's a really cute cafe that serves all kinds of pastries & coffee. both of our cupcakes were absolutely delicious! you could definitely tell they were made with quality ingredients. kara got the coconut (coconut milk pound cake with coconut sour cream filling & white chocolate buttercream icing) & I tried the mochaccino (vanilla chiffon cake with coffee cream filling, topped with chocolate ganache & coffee buttercream). and not only were the cupcakes delicious, but the presentation was beautiful.
