I'm a Red Velvet and I'm a tie dye t-shirts at Baked by Melissa, plus Peanut Butter Fluff mini cupcakes

I stopped by Baked by Melissa in SoHo in New York yesterday and got one of their April cupcakes of the month, the Peanut Butter Fluff. I love how they can pack so much into one tiny cupcakes, and I also love peanut butter and marshmallow. It reminded me of the first time I ever had marshmallow fluff; I'd never even heard of it, and I was at a summer day camp and everyone was eating peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiches, and while whether I liked it is a bit fuzzy, feeling totally out of the loop for not knowing what fluff was is what I recall. These were interesting, and a good mix of peanut butter to fluff, salty and sweet. Sometimes, even for a marshmallow lover like I am, marshmallow can be too sweet, so this wasn't the case. And for $1 it was a great snack!

Baked by Melissa is also selling cupcake t-shirts that say "I'm a Red Velvet" or "I'm a Tie Dye." What I want to know is where's my "I'm a S'mores" t-shirt? I'd wear that! Baked by Melissa ships their mini cupcakes nationwide and has six locations in Manhattan. Visit and their Facebook page for more information.

They are running a contest where you can win by uploading photos of Baked by Melissa cupcakes to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.:
