Butch meets Cupcakes

This is one guy who definately gets it!
What a great idea!
Cupcakes inspired for a man!

And you gotta love the name Butch Bakery!
Butch Bakery was born when David Arrick felt it was time to combine

a masculine aesthetic to a traditionally cute product -the cupcake.
When a magazine article mentioned that cupcakes
were a combination of everything "pink, sweet, cute, and magical",
he felt it was time to take action, and butch it up.
He decided to create a company where "Butch meets Buttercream".
David is delighted to bring this exciting culinary product to market.

Their cupcake samplers have 12 delicious flavors to choose from.

Check out those decorative chocolate disc!
They have 6 styles:
Woodland Camo
Wood Grain
or Marble

And check out these flavors!

Rum-Soaked Madagascar Vanilla Cake with Cola Bavarian Cream Filling (Rum & Coke)

Chocolate Beer Cake with Beer-Infused Buttercream and Pretzels (Beer Run)

They are only available in NYC...BOO!

But they say they will be available to us all in hold tight!
