After a couple of years online, Mancakes Bakery has cooked up a bricks and mortar location on the east end of Robson Street in downtown Vancouver. As the name suggests, the new location has a decidedly masculine vibe; metal and stainless fixtures and leather furniture make it a cool and comfortable place to hang out over a cup of 49th Parallel Coffee and a Cupcake.
Mancakes 10 unique cupcake flavours are the real stars of the shop. Bold flavours blend together to create their signature combinations like:
Bacon Chili Chocolate: Chocolate base filled with ancho chili chocolate buttercream, topped with vanilla buttercream and crumbled bacon
Buffalo Wing: Spice base filled with tangy baked blue cheesecake mousse, topped with a hot sauce buttercream and crispy chicken sprinkles
Breakfast: Vanilla base with a bacon and egg custard filling, topped with a maple syrup buttercream and crumbled granola tulle
Tequila Pineapple: Spice based filled with pineapple cream, topped with tequila buttercream and roasted pineapple sprinkles
Mancakes Bakery is located at 288 Robson Street (near Hamilton), follow them on Twitter @ManCakesBakery and Facebook for specials and sell-out information.
