Gentleman, if you’re searching for something to replace the traditional box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day, bite-size cupcakes are the answer. Specifically, cupcakes from Baked by Melissa, they are scrumptious and adorable. Your special someone will coo over the delectable little nibbles of Heaven that are dressed in holiday pink, red and white. Personally, I’ll take a cupcake over a piece of candy any holiday.

I have given Baked by Melissa cupcakes as a gift before, and they are always a hit. I’ll be sending my two favorite Valentine’s some of Melissa’s goodies to let them know I’m thinking of them from across the miles.
