What a treat for the foodies out there who want to indulge their sweet tooth relatively guilt free, Baked By Melissa has opened at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City. Her first store on Long Island, Melissa Ben-Ishay opened her first mini cupcake store in Manhattan's Soho in 2009. Since then, the chain has opened an additional 10 stores in the Big Apple before heading across the river and, happily for us, into Nassau County.
A clever idea for an ever increasing weight conscious society, Baked By Melissa offers bite sized confections in a variety of colorful and flavor filled options. Each cupcake, just a little bigger than a quarter, sells for $1.00, with the chocolate dipped going for $1.50. They do also offer volume discounts.
My personal goal is to taste every one of the original 10 flavors, including peanut butter cup, mint chocolate chip, cookie dough, red velvet, chocolate graham, and a decadent sounding Peanut Butter Fluff, dipped in chocolate. Every month will bring its own special mini of the month. Sound good to you? Head on over to the mall. You'll find Baked By Melissa on the ground floor, near the Apple Store.
Don't live locally. No problem, you can order your favorites online. They ship nationwide.
