The Muffin Man is the creator and adoptive father of Gingy.
The Muffin Man appears in Gingy's memories. Gingy recalls when he first came out of the oven, the Muffin Man cries, "Gingy!", to which Gingy replies, "Papa!".
He clearly makes a cake for Shrek and presents it to him. After the three little pigs eat it, he easily makes another. Once Shrek smashed the cake he and Gingy stare and Gingy's pants fall down in shock.
In The Bride of Gingy, he makes Gingy a new girlfriend named Sugar. He tells Gingy that she contains the most sugar ever put in a cookie. But since Gingy made the story up, its not known if she was even real.
