Blake Lively Sabotages Ryan Reynolds With Cupcakes

"[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better." Blake Lively jokes at a "Green Lantern" press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she's sorta joking here. Something…

Cupcake Vodka? Yes, Please!

Oh, yes, ladies, cupcake vodka is an actual thing! Cupcake Vineyards sells 14 wines but also vodkas with "creamy cupcake undertones." OK, we're listening. Cupcake vodka comes in four delicious flavors, including original, vanilla frosting, chocolate devil's food, and lemon chiffon.

Mind Of Man: Men Are From Bacon, Women Are From Cupcakes

Men don’t have a passion for sweet treats the way women do. If given a choice between a sugary confection and something savory, men will choose the latter. This is not some kind of random, sweeping gender generalization I just made up. I have scientific proof. Like many big cities, New York has seen the…

Would You Like Some Cake That Looks Like Meat?

I have to say, there is something somewhat disconcerting about cake that looks like meat. Is it cake ... or is it meat? Your eyes and stomach are in a war. Clearly, the only way to resolve this conflict is to take another bite. Needless to say, Boing Boing points us to this cakes-pretending-to-be-meat slide

The Johnny Cupcakes Cannon: Get A Face Full Of Wasted Treats

I heard my dad's voice while watching this video from the Johnny Cupcakes Suitcase Tour. You see, when I wouldn't eat as a child, my dad would say there were starving children in Africa who would be happy for pumpernickel bread and okra. I'd roll my eyes and think: "Whether I eat or don't, the…

Finally, Cupcakes For Men

We thought everyone liked cupcakes, but apparently some guys find the usual variety a little too cute and unmanly for their tastes. To compensate for the large amount of "girly" cupcake shops and to ensure that men can eat cupcakes without feeling any less masculine, David Arrick started Butch Bakery. The New York City-based company,…

Dude-Washing: A Marketing Strategy Aimed At Guys With Small Wieners

Tony Soprano (and mobster types everywhere) made it OK for dudes to get manicures. Diddy has become the poster boy for manscaping. And now, as if we need more proof that it’s a man’s world, a handful of “creative” entrepreneurs are doing what they can to lend masculinity to some products that have traditionally bee…

Extravagant And Strange Celeb Gifts

David Beckham recently bought Victoria a vineyard in California's Napa Valley. Apparently the two developed a passion for wine while they were in Spain (which also happens to be when Becks developed a passion for the nanny).
