Cupcake Carnage!

Yesterday my husband and I bought some delicious red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing for dessert. I had one of the four and closed the plastic container, leaving it on the table.

Big mistake.

I woke up this morning to find the cupcakes were on the floor, covered in cat hair, except for one. One had survived the fall and was neatly sitting upright in its container...

...with a quarter of the icing licked off. Clearly, Albert had sampled the cupcake and was unimpressed by the icing offering. After all, cats can't taste sweetness so the icing was probably just very bland. The one cupcake that survived, rendered uneatable due to Albert trying it. To add insult to injury, he didn't even like what he tried. Of course he didn't try one that had been on the floor - that would be dirty.

Stupid intelligent cat.

Here are some photos of the cupcakes carnage and the thief himself, looking smug

Spoiler

I would totally still eat them. :my_blush:  Maybe scoop anything visible off the icing first.  Or maybe not. :my_tongue:

If I'm being totally honest I closely examined the cupcakes to see if they were salvageable. Alas, there was just too much cat hair on them to pick out. I gave in and bought more :)

This might make you feel better:  on a holiday when we had company and set out a lot of snacks and desserts, we weren't paying attention to the table after a while. Zippy the cat decided he wanted some chip dip, but the cake was in the way. We found him standing wtih his front feet on the cake to get to the dip.

I'm impressed. How the hell did he get the lid off?

My cats would definitely try to do the same, but a lid would defeat them - they'd just try and eat through the plastic instead. 

Also - your cat is so handsome I know I would instantly forgive him for everything.

Years ago, I'd made a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving,  IIRC.  I'd covered the pie with a clean tea towel while it cooled.  I noticed later that one of the cats had stepped onto the pie and left some paw prints.  We ate it anyway, cat tracks and all.

I think the lid might have popped off when he knocked it from the table. He's very good at opening things - he learned that my bedroom door had a weak spot many years ago and would manipulate it to get the door to pop open whenever he liked. Eventually that led to the door totally breaking with me trapped inside the room, it would not open no matter what, I had to climb out the window and the door had to be replaced!

But as you said, he's so damn handsome I can't ever be mad at him for anything. I've never met such an infuriatingly photogenic animal in all my life.

@PennySycamore If there hadn't been so much cat fur in the cupcakes I sure as hell would have eaten them.

Albert's mental response to the horrific carnage: "That's right, I licked the frosting. And you know what? I don't feel bad about it at all. Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah.."  ;)

Ha ha, probably. He clearly didn't even LIKE the frosting, which somehow adds insult to injury.

      But that is a far different goal than getting a degree or working in a certain field. You achieve those goals by going out and doing the work necessary to get them. It's all on you. Getting married requires another person agreeing to make a lifelong commitment.

      I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around the idea of getting married as a goal, TBH. A milestone, sure. A memorable event? Yes. But an actual goal? I mean, when I set goals - let's say I want to run a marathon. I have a plan for that. I determine which marathon I want to do, look at the course, determine my level of fitness and what I need to do for training. If it's hilly, I add hill repeats into my training schedule. Then I create a schedule and schedule my life around work and than. (Side note: I have not run a full marathon.) If I want to make more money, I create a plan - I figure out what value I'm bringing to my company and negotiate a raise. I schedule the meeting, I practice my ask. If I want to go back to school, I would figure out a plan to pay for it and the work out the scheduling. 

      If I want to get married I what? Beg my boyfriend repeatedly? Poke holes in the condoms? Break up with him and download Tinder?

      The notion that a girl not growing up and getting married is a devastating shock is, frankly, the exact patriarchy most people on this forum disagree with. 

      Preach it.

      What exactly are these rights and privileges? And why? 

      You get some rights pertaining to the marital relationship. My mom could sign my dad into the hospital when he could no longer sign his own name. I could not without a Power of Attorney. A partner not married to someone would not be able to without a POA, either. A woman on a cancer caregiver support forum I use was devastated when her partner died and his father came and took the body for cremation against her wishes. Unfortunately, in the absence of legal documentation, with no marriage, the father was the next of kin and had that right. 

      But if there are rights pertaining to general life (rather than specific to a relationship) that a single person is denied, I'm not sure what those are. No one told me.

      My ex-best friend told all of us chosen to be in her wedding party not to get pregnant unless we we willing to get an abortion before the wedding since she didn't want anyone looking fat or for any pregnant belly to take any attention away from her.  

      I knew a woman that was furious that her matron of honour was going to be pregnant at her wedding. Her exact words were: "this is MY day and it's not about HER! How dare she be pregnant at my wedding!".

      I didn't like that woman already, but after that comment...

      Thanks for sharing that recipe @mango_fandango. I've never seen a guacamole recipe with cream in it. Is that a US thing (anyone?), or is that just Erika? I use my brother's recipe - no idea where he got it, but it is just avocado, lime juice, red onion, red chilli, olive oil and coriander (cilantro). Not quite as easy as Erika's version, but pretty close, especially as we keep coriander in the freezer all chopped and ready to go - no defrosting required.

      No, it's not a US thing. Except for the olive oil your recipe is far more typical (read: that's how I make it)

      You've probably also never seen anyone try to stretch one avocado to feed 9 kids. . . . I know I haven't.
