Mini of the Month: January

If you know me at all, you know I love cupcakes!  This year, I am planning to taste test the mini of the month from Baked by Melissa each month.  These cupcakes are bite sized (and only roughly 80 calories!) so I don't feel so bad indulging on these once a month!

Ingredients: Cotton Candy Cake, Green Vanilla Icing, Rainbow Crunch Topping

The mini for January is Cotton Candy.  It was originally introduced in March 2012, but Melissa allows facebook fans to vote on the mini for January and August and the fans voted to bring this one back for the third time.  At least according to the cashier at the store I visited.  I'll have to remember to get in on the voting fun in June!  The other 10 months Melissa works her creative magic to bake a totally new flavor!  I'm excited to see what she comes up with this year!

I wasn't too sure I'd like this tiny treat when I saw it, but it turned out to be quite tasty.  Chris didn't care for it as much, but I have a much sweeter tooth than he does.  I was surprised how much it actually tasted like cotton candy, too!  I would definitely get it again sometime.

  1. Love! I am a cupcake lover... I would go crazy over this Taste Test fun!!! Enjoy!

  2. Love. What is on the very top? Are those sprinkles? It almost looks like a cut piece of multi-colored fruit rollup. I love that she made the cupcake blue too...that really makes you think "cotton candy"!
