The cupcakes and cookies at Baked & Wired are huge, giving you substantial bang for your cupcake buck. The baked goods are delicious, perfectly balancing the cake to frosting ratio. Cupcakes not your thing? Then opt for a cookie-sandwich, featuring rich frosting or ice cream centers. The gingersnap-lemon buttercream cookie is refreshing and zesty without being too sweet.
