Big Gay Ice Cream and Robicelli's Cupcakes write in to say they've teamed up on possibly the most gonzo mini-cake this town has seen: the Salty Pimp. Taking a cue from the scoopery's popular cone, this cupcake layers vanilla cake around dulce de leche pudding, topping it with dulce de leche buttercream frosting encased in fudge — which, despite our general cupcake ennui, sounds worth every diabetes-risking bite. It's sold exclusively at the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. And that's not all: We hear the ice cream guys have a book deal in the works, possibly with Clarkson Potter (the imprint behind Mile End, Momofuku, and Dirt Candy's cookbooks). Also, mark your calendars for the Big Gay shop's one-year anniversary on September 3, featuring all the ice cream and all the drag queens (and kings) East 7th Street can hold.
