No pink! No sprinkles! No unicorns! Yuck! And I hate it when grandmas makes cupcakes! Finally, “manly cupcakes for manly men.” Thank goodness!
In case you haven’t yet understood that these are manly freakin’ cupcakes, perhaps this construction plan will help:
They don’t bake cupcakes, they build them. With, like, levels and measuring tapes and shit.
The chocolate top layers come in Woodland Camo, Wood Grain, Houndstooth, Plaid, Checkerboard, and Marble. Cupcake flavors include the B-52, Beer Run (a beer infused cupcake, which sounds disgusting to me–but which numerous commenters say are delicious), Homerun, Jackhammer, and Driller (with bacon bits!), among others.
Because being manly means rejecting all things feminine. Including candy sprinkles. So emasculating!
UPDATE: jfruh says,
I’m intrigued that “butch” is being used to mean “masculine” for (I assume) an audience of straight men. I much more associate it with discourse about gender roles among gay people (both lesbians and gay men).
