If you know me, you know that I love New York. It’s the only place that has ever truly felt like home, and I’m glad to be here. I could tell you about the TV shows I’ve attended so far- today it’s Dr. Oz, or I could tell you about my shenanigans with friends which I’ll likely do later. Or….I could show you pictures of the amazing 50 calorie cupcakes that I’ve mentioned here a few times before. Yeah, let’s talk about cupcakes.
Last year as I was walking to Grand Central Station, I noticed Baked by Melissa. A friend had mentioned it to me months before I tried it, and when I did, I was hooked. There are multiple locations in NYC, and I find myself drawn to them whenever I walk by one. In fact, there’s one on the way to Times Square from Penn Station so I may or may not have eaten a few (3) today.
They’re tiny and cute and decadent, and they’re all 50 calories or less. And I love them. You’re reading this which means you undoubtedly know that I like cupcakes, but you may also know that I no longer crave them in the way that I used to. (Thank you, universe.) A cupcake from Crumbs still hits the spot, but most often, I don’t eat an entire one because it’s loaded with fat and calories. You know how it is… But these are guilt free (as long as I don’t eat a dozen!) So it’s easy to satisfy the craving without over indulging.
I’d love to tell you that they have locations all over the nation, but they’re only located in New York. I think you can order them, but my guess is that you’d pay a pretty penny. And hey, I like my cupcakes fresh.
Is there a similar place near you? If so, let me know so I can visit soon. I’m kidding (or am I?)
