When one thinks of cupcakes, what often comes to mind is a cake with pink icing and pretty sprinkles on top. But, sweet and colourful cupcakes aren’t for everyone. At Mancakes Bakery, owners Geoff and Jeremy turn away from “frilly cupcakes with inches of icing smeared on top”. Instead, they’ve created a line of Mancakes that are cupcakes with all the strong and savoury flavours that men prefer. From bacon to red wine, these cupcakes are bound to be a pleasant and fun surprise for anybody.
Mancakes Bakery is the only bakery in the world that offers Buffalo Wing cupcakes. This cupcake is filled with tangy baked blue cheesecake moussed and then topped with a hot sauce buttercream and crispy chicken sprinkles. Yes, it sounds a bit weird, but I was very surprised with how delicious it actually turned out to be.
For something sweeter, the Whiskey Lime cupcake is an awesome option. This guy is filled with whiskey ganache and then topped with white chocolate lime icing. It’s great how the whiskey and the lime balance each other out to give a sweet taste that isn’t too sugary.
Mancakes are the perfect fun treat for many types of occasions: office parties, bachelor parties, Fathers’ Day, and more. And of course, you can always have a box to yourself. They are sold in packs of 6 and catering services are offered as well. You can order mancakes through their website for delivery or find them at select Urban Fare locations. So next time you are looking to eat or gift treats worth remembering, consider Mancakes for something totally different.
