Buttercream Bromance

Though the idea of pants-wearing seems as antiquated as retro baked goods, we do like a guy to take the lead sometimes.

Like David Arrick. The Wall Streeter-turned-entrepreneur came across a description of cupcakes as “pink, sweet, cute, and magical,” nearly vomited (go figure), and decided to take matters into his own burly hands.

His new venture, Butch Bakery, peddles big, boozy cupcakes with XY-approved patterns like camo, wood grain, and houndstooth. Manly flavors include rum-soaked Madagascar vanilla cake with cola Bavarian cream filling (Rum & Coke), chocolate beer cake with beer-infused buttercream and pretzels (Beer Run), and peanut butter cake with banana Bavarian cream and crumbled bacon.

The liquor-infused treats are available for delivery anywhere in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens.

And, you know: Cupcakes with beer, you’re in the clear.
