Baked by Melissa Spring St. @ Mercer in NYC
It was a sunny warm 40 degree day so I walked back to the hotel along Spring street and found the next greatest thing: stuffed mini-cupcakes. I have a friend who is terrified of getting fat (I on the other hand, gave up long ago). He will eat half a cookie, and throw the rest away! Yikes! Well, this place is for those kinds of people, who just want a taste of sweetness, or for people like me who like to try lots of different flavors. The cupcakes are about the size of a half dollar, and about half an inch tall (see how the sugar grains on the red velvet cupcake look so big? it's because the cupcake is so small!). A perfect recession-sized mouthful!
