When you want to satisfy your sweet tooth and try a bunch of different cool flavors without overloading on sugar, we can't think of a better dessert option than Baked by Melissa. The New York City-based cupcake shop makes delicious bite-sized cupcakes in fun colors like tie-dye, and creative flavors like chocolate chip pancakes.

The now-empire of mini cupcakes was born out of Melissa Ben-Ishay's personal passion for baking and was once simply a pop-up and pickup window in SoHo. Today, there are multiple retail stores, and it ships nationwide to anyone who loves cupcakes. 

We've given them to loved ones for birthdays and happily indulged in them ourselves during office celebrations. Since they're so small, it's easy (and fun) to eat a few at a time. 

What to shop at Baked by Melissa

One of its bestsellers and one the best ways to try Baked by Melissa's greatest hits is the Latest and Greatest cupcake pack. It features 12 different flavors, from a classic red velvet to the one-of-a-kind Midnight Munchies flavor (chocolate cake stuffed with dulce de leche and topped with pretzel icing and potato chip pretzel brittle). There are two cupcakes of each flavor, plus an extra Midnight Munchies cupcake. Some of these flavors rotate depending on the season, there'll always be something new to look forward to. 

A few of our favorite Baked by Melissa Original flavors are the signature tie-dye, which is a rainbow cake topped with vanilla icing and rainbow sugar crystals, and the mint cookie, which is a mint cake stuffed with fudge, topped with mint cookies and cream icing, mint cookie butter, and green drizzle. On a standard-sized cupcake, these combinations can sound overwhelming and very filling, but they're just right when packed into a cupcake you can hold with two fingers. 

Baked by Melissa also offers seasonal and limited edition flavors, including holiday-themed packs, and pre-curated birthday boxes that make gifting easy. Check out the gift section for more pre-curated bundles. 

You can also customize a 25-, 50-, or 100-count box by picking your favorite flavors. Gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free cupcakes are available. 

For the truly avid cupcake lover, the site even has a few subscription options, which are sent monthly or quarterly. 

And for client gifting, corporate gifting, catering, and special events, Baked by Melissa can also step in to provide treats for everyone. 

Shipping and delivery

There are a few ways to obtain your bite-sized cupcakes:

Nationwide shipping: Available on orders with a $20 minimum and to all 50 states. You can schedule specific arrival date. There are standard, expedited, and priority shipping options. The cupcakes are packed with foam liners and ice packs to ensure freshness upon arrival. 

Delivery in NYC: Available on orders with a $20 minimum and to Manhattan addresses below 110th Street. The delivery fee is $9.95 and you can choose a 2-hour delivery window. 

In-store pickup: Available on orders with a $20 minimum. Choose your store and go straight to the front counter and provide the full name of the recipient. 

Baked by Melissa deals 

From time to time, Baked by Melissa will run free giveaways. In the past, it's given away free 25-packs of cupcakes and included free shipping to sweeten the deal. 

These deals typically go quickly, so have your recipient's address information ready when you visit the website. When the company ran a giveaway deal earlier in the year, I redeemed it to send birthday cupcakes to my roommate. They arrived safely and tasted great (from what I heard), and my roommate loved the surprise, so I highly recommend taking advantage of the deals. We'll update this post whenever we hear about the next Baked by Melissa giveaway.  

Right now, there aren't any free cupcake giveaways, but the brand is offering a novel "cupcake insurance" feature. If you order the autumn-themed Give Thanks 25-Pack for delivery on Thanksgiving, you're eligible to change the delivery address up to three days before Thanksgiving, November 26. Since your travel plans may be up in the air due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this insurance gives you some flexibility. 

If you need to change the shipping address, just call Baked by Melissa's Customer Happiness team at 212-842-0220 with an updated address by November 23 at 6 p.m. EST.
