Cupcake Monday: The Manly, 'Butch' Edition
Thanks to Boing Boing sussing out all the curious things happening in our world, we now have something for men on Cupcake Monday! Butch Bakery in New York (that city really does have everything) offers an alternative 'for manly men' to the "frilly pink-frosted sprinkles and unicorns kind of cupcake" - as if that's a bad thing! But sure, I can see how this former lawyer and entrepreneurial-minded fellow might have gotten tired of having to take boxes of those frilly pink-frosted sprinkles and unicorns kind of cupcakes into an alley where no one would see him devour the contents in an orgiastic flurry of fondant icing, red velvet crumbs and shame. A guy could use something a little less dainty to get his sweets freak on, we get it.
However, I think that 'manly' here is defined within metrosexual terms, for I'm quite sure that my dad (a bonafide manly man) has no idea what chocolate ganache is and how eating it would help him become more like Chuck Norris.
And come on, if the six 'styles' of houndstooth, camo, plaid, woodgrain, checkerboard and marble 'decorative discs' aren't cute, I don't know what is.
