Available at Blue Apron Foods, Flying Saucer Cafe and Hom (917-509-6048, robicellis.com). Average cupcake: $2.50.
This delivery company is stripping the cupcake of its frilly image by reinventing it for men, offering 12 booze-soaked baked goods (imagine, an edible mojito or Sidecar!). Each treat is topped with a chocolate disk decorated in masculine patterns like camouflage or houndstooth. butchbakery.com. Box of 4 to 12 $16--$48 plus $8 delivery fee for orders under $50.
The roving truck's unflappable baker, Heather Warren, churns out more flavors than any brick-and-mortar bakery in the city. If you can dream it, she'll conceive it: Submit your idea on the Cupcake Stop website and she'll pick one new confection to create every month. How else would she come up with flavors like mango-poppy? 718-702-2825, cupcakestop.com. Average cupcake: $2.25.
