Heaven forbid, we don’t want a sissy cupcake, right? I don’t care if my cupcake is macho, mentally retarded, transsexual or a TYRANNOSAURUS. The only thing that matters is that it’s in my mouth.I thought pies were the new cupcake anyhow?
The Macho (Cupcake) Man
A former real estate lawyer whips up pretty cupcakes—for dudes

David Arrick became Mr. Cupcake not out of a desire to bake or an affinity for frosting but “out of anger and frustration.” It was fall 2008, and he’d lost his job as a Manhattan real estate attorney, his home in New Jersey, and a huge portion of his savings. He’d also just turned 40. At this low moment Arrick walked by a certain venerable bakery—a familiar stop on Sex and the City bus tours—in his West Village neighborhood and saw a line of women around the block. “Freaking cupcakes,” he thought. “What if I made them manly?”
