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.

      So standard practice for programming with more than one person is to keep the code in an online repository, like GitHub. The process goes like this: everyone "checks out" (downloads) their own branch (copy) of what's on GitHub, makes whatever changes / additions they need, then merges their changes back into the main branch after going through a process called a "pull request" (kinda like a peer review). Standard naming conventions are that the main branch is referred to as "master". GitHub recently announced that they would be changing the default name to something else basically for the same reasons Braggie is bitching about. A good change, though it'd be even nicer if they'd cancel their ICE contract...

      Anyway you know who complained at my company when our most senior engineer suggested we do the same?

      Nobody.

      Because who would get upset over something so trivial?

      I think Nurie will really like Pris since she’s a godly fundie mom of 5. However I wish she would get to know Suze and Rebekah better. I want Nurie to realize that there are decent people in this world who aren’t fundie. 

      i think she will get to know them to an extent, but I can see her hanging out more with Pris.

      One of my two kids is not required to wear a mask because she is 9.  But she wears one every.single.time. because I’ve told her why it’s important and she’s cool with it. 

      It’s not that hard to not be a dick, Braggie, yet you manage to fail miserably every time.

      You’d think that she would be better at limiting her exposure for none other than selfish reasons...if she, Shaun, or her mom has COVID near her due date, guess who gets to give birth without a support person?  Not to mention the risk to ALL of her children.

      She’s so stupid.
