Ikea Cupcakes? Yes!

Everyone knows Ikea has great meatballs, but even I didn't know they had cupcakes until I went to the new location in Kansas City recently.  I tried this sweet looking spice cake in their café and I have to say that it was light and moist and very tasty, especially the ultra creamy spiced icing. It was also affordable, so definitely worth a try if you're shopping!

Review: Baked By Melissa's Valentine's Day Cupcake Pack

Shipping cupcakes has always been a challenge for bakeries. The packaging has the right. The cupcakes have to be secured so that the frosting and cupcakes remain in tact. The cupcakes have to stay cool. Most important, they have to taste good. Well, Baked By Melissa has exceeded my expectations. They sent me a Valentine's Day pack of 25 itty bitty cupcakes, and they arrived perfectly.
@bakedbymelissa cupcakes have arrived.
The box was light. In the past, I have encountered heavy boxes with so much packing material.
Stay cool Packaging for #cupcakes
I can re-use this silver pack in the summer for picnics and stuff. This is not a cupcake. it is an ice pack. #bakedbymelissa
Baked By Melissa has a sense of humor. It's an ice pack, not a cupcake.
Check out the cupcakes. There are three flavors: chocolate with peanut butter, red velvet and vanilla.
Eating one can't hurt.�� @bakedbymelissa #cupcakes
The cupcakes are tiny bites of decadence and are great for Valentine's Day. Order today from Baked By Melissa.
