Mini-everything is always cuter than regular-sized anything. Take stuffed cupcakes by Baked By Melissa, for example. Each bite-size cupcake has a diameter of a silver dollar, and stands only an inch high. There are ten playful flavors: mint chocolate chip, tie-dye (rainbow), cookies and cream, cookie dough, red velvet, peanut butter cup, cinnamon, peanut butter & jelly, and s’mores. My personal favorite is the PB&J, which as a cupcake, improves upon the PB&J sandwich; as a mini cupcake, is massively cuter than a regular cupcake; and as a PB&J, transports me to fond memories of my childhood.

Of course, there are drawbacks to minis. They are tiny. If you take dainty little bites, you might be able to get two bites per cupcake. Still, they are the cutest cupcakes that you ever did see. Plus, you can sample several flavors without feeling super guilty afterwards about having eaten several full-size cupcakes.

The original Baked by Melissa shop is a tiny little hole in the wall (literally) on the north side of Spring St. near Broadway in SoHo. Don’t walk by too quickly as it’s really easy to miss. According to their website, they’ve also just opened up a Union Square location at 7 Union Square. For 100 mini cupcakes, it’ll set you back $70. Smaller orders have a slightly higher cost per cupcake. It is definitely worth stopping by, if only to say, “Awwww!” about a cupcake.
