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.

      I think this might address the recent improvement in Lori's health. 

      It's just a little, tiny, itsy bitsy, hardly anything at all kitchen remodel!  And they were going to do a total remodel in 5 years anyway.  And they didn't get new cabinets 'cause they were too expensive.  So there's Miss Don't Spend Your Hubby's Money remodel explanation.

      Honestly, I don't care how anyone spends their own money, it's none of my business, but since she goes on and on about wives not spending a lot of money...

      Sorry to hear about her family's bout of stomach flu (cough Norwex cough). 

      Does anyone else think Lori drones on and on about her health issues IRL as she does here?

      After the coffee spilling scene, I was left with an uncomfortable feeling when Jeremy said "I wanted coffee, not lava, open it", and watching Jinger's expression change.....I'm not trying to be overdramatic, but I found it chilling.

      He said that? Doesn't he keep pontificating about how she should be less hard on herself or something? And then he says crap like that? Looks like he is part of the problem rather than the solution.

      Some more sweet, sweet karma from the Pacific Northwest;

      Quote

      Sean Patrick Duff was on his way to see Baby Driver on Sunday when he saw a white man wearing a red armband walking near 3rd Avenue and Pike Street. The man, whose name is still unknown, was being "belligerent" and "Alex Jones-style yelling" at passersby, which began drawing a small crowd, Duff told The Stranger.

      One bystander, a white man, approached the neo-Nazi and yelled at him to "get the fuck out of our city." The neo-Nazi then called the man an "ape and threw a banana at him," Duff recalled. Within moments, another man ran from across the street and punched the neo-Nazi in the jaw, knocking him out.

      Although he didn't anticipate a physical altercation, Duff said he was "hopeful" that the man donning the Nazi armband would get punched. Duff noted that he was "really high on like 800 mg of THC" and stood back with about a dozen people during the incident. Another bystander caught video of the altercation, and posted it to YouTube, but the service removed the clip for violating "YouTube's policy on harassment and bullying."

      I watched the cooking show thing, and that kinda.. grossed me out. Both for JinJer and Joystin. Why is the woman expected to cook? Make your own goddamn food. For real. Those men are disgusting.

      Is that in this week's episode?  Ugh.  At best, bossy AF.

      I've always thought there was a reason Jeremy praised Jinger's meekness.  And it isn't a nice one.

      I see that "science" is still a dirty word for her.

      Oh, science isn't a dirty word for these folks.  There's a lot of Creationist "science" at the Ark Encounter.  The only problem is that it's FUBAR science.
