Good to Be Blue

  • This year has been challenging for all of us, and I wanted to make something special to instill and remind you of why it is so important to be UB proud! -Nick Butlak

    Nick Butlak graduated UB in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with a focus in communication design. As a student, Nick was a member of the LGBTQ alliance and received a Rumsy-Cary scholarship in 2011.

    His YouTube channel, “The Boy of Sugar”, combines his artistic stills with his interests in cosmetics and human faces. With makeup as his medium, and his body as a canvas, Nick paints himself to communicate messages.

    Chef's Tip: Do not trim inside the "U" or the "B". This will help the cookie maintain some stability.
