The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year and being in New York City in December is magical. The energy, people, holiday lights, festive decorations, tree and of course food are all so much fun to be a part of. We booked our trip a few weeks back which meant I needed to start doing some research on which foods we will be eating and where we should have dinner. Baked by Mellissa cupcakes have been on my hit list for a long time so they were a top priority for me. What I love about these mini cakes is that they are all about the size of a quarter which allows you to try a lot of different flavors.
I tried the S’mores, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chip Pancake, Cinnamon, Peanut Butter cup, PB & J, Red Velvet and the mini of the month which is a vanilla cake with fudge stuffing, vanilla icing and a snowflake coconut crunch topping. They were worth the wait because they were all delicious. The cake was moist and the flavors were great. My favorites were the PB & J, Snowball (mini of the month) and Cinnamon although I really loved all of them. After my “mini” sugar fix, we headed to the holiday shops in Bryant Park. I stumbled upon the French macaroon booth which not only got me psyched for more sugar but looked beautiful as well. The array of colors and flavors offered by Woops macaroons and cookies was so much fun to look at.
If your lucky enough to get to New York over the next few week, I hope you get to enjoy all of the amazing food the big apple has to offer. My picks for the day were the Baked By Melissa cupcakes, Caramel Fleur de Sel Macaroon by Woops in Bryant park, and the Gingerbread popcorn at Garrett’s. Happy Holidays!
