Mancakes Bakery

I was strolling around Downtown with MedicalGiraffe and stumbled upon this cute place. ManCakes Bakery Cafe opened up on Robson near Cambie. It’s the cutest cupcake shop that is catered towards men.

No worries, women buy cupcakes here too. Not just for men. The owners came up with ManCakes since they were sick of all the frilly over iced cupcakes. I’ve tried their ManCakes at an event a while ago before they had this location. They are definitely changing up the cupcake game with their unique concept.

You won’t find the regular flavours of cupcakes here. I was definitely drawn by the sign. Whiskey and lime?

Inside the store is a loungey area to enjoy some cupcakes and coffee.

The cupcakes look really cute and the flavours are like food and drinks that you can find at a pub.

There were 11 different types of cupcakes and it was very hard to figure out which one to get. The cupcakes don’t only sound good but they

Tool Box ($20) comes with a dozen mini cupcakes. It’s a great way to try all their cupcakes. It makes for great gifts for the office.

The tool box contains:

  • Apple Brie
  • Tequila Pineapple
  • Whiskey Lime
  • Buffalo Wing
  • King Kong
  • Bacon Chili Chocolate
  • Chocolate Red Wine
  • Pink Peppercorn Grapefruit
  • Rum & Coke
  • Breakfast
  • Chicago Popcorn

The flavours that stood out are chocolate red wine, Chicago popcorn, whiskey lime, king kong, rum and coke, and tequila pineapple. One flavour that we thought would be good but wasn’t was the Buffalo Wing. M and I didn’t like the sweet and savoury taste of it. Personal preferences.

You can eat the mini cupcakes in 2 bites.

Overall, the cupcakes were moist and had a great balance of flavour and quite innovative. A fun cupcake to give to any man or woman.

    I wonder how insecure as a man you have to be to create an entire business based on sexist stereotypes.
