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

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.

      Has anyone seen Jinger and Jeremy’s latest Instagram posts? I don’t know how to link them but the captions almost make it sound like she is expecting. Hers says “the littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts” and his says “Life gets busy. I’ve been learning to value the ‘little’ moments - a Sunday morning stroll, holding those tiny fingers.” and even though Felicity is in the middle of the pictures, it makes me suspicious.

      The video of Thomas and sophias birthday shows Hannah wearing socks while out so saying she won't keep them on is just an excuse. She is two. Make her. It's winter. She is feral. His last two videos are very poorly filmed with jerky movements and so much swinging around of the camera it's difficult to watch. One thing I will.say though having grown up with angry mean adults is his tone of voice is always nice to his kids. I'll give him that. But still driving and reading comments, so unsafe,  and lots of junk and no seat belts for the kids.

      Apparently Mariah has been sick in bed for days. Not quite on par with breaking an elbow (Kennedy), or getting in a construction accident (Andrew and John), or getting into a horrific car wreck which results in breaking your ankle and all of your front teeth in half (Mike and Kress), but damn this extended family has some bad luck in the week immediately surrounding their marriages.

      Can I ask where you found out she is sick? I haven’t seen anything. 

      Getting sick around my wedding sounds like something that would happen to me lol

      Thin Eaters dread feeling full. Be like a Thin Eater. if you eat more than you should you will be dressed in rags. (maybe this is what Gwen really fears.)

      What Happens When You Eat Past Full

      February 28, 2020

      If you eat quickly, you will bypass the polite full feeling. It takes approximately 20 minutes for the brain to detect the replenished blood sugar or “satisfied” feeling. Skilled Thin Eaters will notice that the body is trying to get you to stop eating when the stomach pouch is slightly satisfied because they remember if they continue to eat that they will feel stuffed in 30 minutes. Thin Eaters and children dread the overfull feeling. Thin Eaters are so sensitive that they notice the decreased sensitivity to the flavor of the food—another mechanism God created to turn off the desire to eat.

      Children digest food much faster than adults and feel like playing right after a meal. However, when adults eat too much, they feel lethargic because so much blood and fluids rush to the stomach to digest the huge amount of food, taking the energy and blood away from the muscles.

      If you have overeaten, so much is needed that it leaves less blood for the brain and other parts of the body, so the body compensates by making the person sleepy. The digestion of huge meals is very energy expensive, especially after overindulgence, since the food has to be converted to fats and shipped to the hips. Proverbs 23:20-21 says, “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.”

      How are they getting so many "candid" photos on themselves to post on Instagram? Do they really have a friend who they meet up with every morning to take shots of them? Or are they setting up a tripod in the middle of sidewalks?? I'm confused. I'm not an "influencer" so I don't know these logistics but they confuse me. 

      At one point they were crediting the photographers that took the pictures but seem to have stopped. I think in their bid to become money making influencers/celebrities they do hire people to take photos to attract partnership deals.  However they’ve had Jeremy’s family staying over a few times so maybe one of them took some pictures.
