man cakes

is there anything wrong with cupcakes being girly?

David Arrick thought so.

he recently launched Butch Bakery, an online cupcakery that caters to the masculine set.

his cupcakes are infused with such manly ingredients as bacon, beer and kahlua, according to an article in the wall street journal, with each flavor named something guy-ish, like "beer run," "tailgate" and "rum and coke."

and sprinkles? he don't need no stinking sprinkles.

each cupcake is topped with a patterned chocolate disc over a sensible dollop of buttercream.

i applaud his moxie, but i don't know if i should be intrigued or offended. his copious use of the word "butch," isn't exactly politically correct. and his web site is over-the-top "manly." overcompensating, perhaps?

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
