With just a week to go in a campaign to make sweet love to Atlanta, it’s time to turn up the heat in the big gay kitchen of Burly Bakers. But it’s already hot in there … so take off all their clothes?Well, kind of.
We already told you about the big gay dreams of hunky sweets peddler Bill Armstrong. He’s back with some local gay hunks romping around the kitchen looking hot to show us just how far they’re willing to go to make those dreams come true.
In addition to incentives like t-shirts and batches of sweet treats, the Burly Bakers pinup calendar may be the biggest draw for hundreds of donors already contributing to the Kickstarter campaign for a storefront bakery. So to sweeten the deal and inspire your contributions, Armstrong agreed to let us share some beefcake outtakes and behind-the-scenes shots from the calendar photo shoots (above and below).
But it’s not all hot sexy gay guys licking frosting off each other’s cupcakes over at Burly Bakers. The desserts themselves are awesome too, and the fundraising process has been an eye-opener about the value of community support, friends and going for your goals, Armstrong tells Project Q.
“I’ve been truly overwhelmed by the amount of love and support I’ve gotten,” he says. “All of my calendar models volunteered their time and did it just to support my business growth – and also the local pit rescue I’m sponsoring through sales of the calendar. My heart is in the bakery 100 percent, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it succeed.”
The crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $16,000 toward it’s $25,000 goal.The deadline to help out is 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 6.Once you’ve ogled the merchandise – there is Burly Bakers food porn to devour as well – sign up for your copy of the calendar and piece of Armstrong’s dream by donating to the campaign.
UPDATE: With the successful Kickstarter campaign complete, you can now order your calendar online.
