In celebration of Black Music Month, Primary Wave Music has announced the latest partnership with New York City’s Funny Face Bakery to bring two of its iconic artists to life in edible form. Famous for their hand-designed celebrity cookies, Funny Face Bakery will see the legendary James Brown and Whitney Houston, in partnership with The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, join the bakery’s growing roster of edible pop-culture references and famous faces this June. 

Commemorating the impact that Houston and Brown had on music history throughout their careers, the collaboration showcases two great entertainers whose talents have continued to influence artists of today. Fit for sweet tooths and music lovers of all ages, the cookies feature the hand-piped faces of Whitney Houston and James Brown, inspired by original photos of the two, crafted onto the bakery’s classic sugar cookies. 

“We’re excited to celebrate Black Music Month through our collaboration with Primary Wave,” says the Funny Face Bakery team in a joint statement. “It’s an honor to pay homage to legendary artists like Whitney Houston and James Brown, whose timeless music continues to inspire and uplift. Their music brings joy and nostalgia, much like the experience of visiting our store. For those looking to enjoy our cookies without visiting our NYC stores, we offer nationwide shipping, making it possible for everyone to enjoy these special cookies wherever they may be.”  

The limited-edition Whitney Houston and James Brown cookies are available in-store at the bakery’s two NYC storefront locations in NoHo and Seaport, and online via The collaboration will be featured throughout June while supplies last.
