Melissa Ben-Ishay, the founder of bite-sized cupcake bakery Baked by Melissa, is turning one year older on Friday, January 11. To help its founder celebrate her birthday, Baked by Melissa has a special offer for its guests.

On January 11, customers can receive on free cupcake at any Baked by Melissa retail location in New York City. For those who can’t make it to the celebration in NYC, there is a 10 percent off discount code available to online customers on that day, which customers can receive by signing up for the Baked by Melissa newsletter.

Another part of the birthday celebration is the recently-released “Birthday Party in a Box.” This new product from Baked by Melissa includes everything you need to throw a birthday party of your own in true Melissa style.

The 8-person party kit includes 8 mini tie-dye plates, 8 confetti-filled balloons, 8 colorful party blowers, 4 party crowns, 4 party hats, a set of ‘Happy Birthday’ candles, and a pouch of rainbow confetti. All that’s needed is some cupcakes to complete the package.

“Baked by Melissa is perfect for every party – our bite-size treats work great in place of a cake or even as a parting gift,” says Melissa Ben-Ishay, President and Chief Product Officer for Baked by Melissa.

Ben-Ishay also gives advice for hosting birthday parties. “I like to use Pinterest to get creative ideas to take the event to the next level and make it feel personal. When throwing a party it's important to put your whole heart into everything you do - your guests will feel the love and that's what makes all the difference,” she says.
