Cupcake Carnage!


Vex

2,014 views

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.

      How old are Shalom and Justin’s kids?  I can’t imagine leaving my kids when their other parent is dying.  The poor daughter who was down with him.  It just doesn’t seem like they are thinking about the kids, especially if the kids are too young to understand.  I don’t image Mike and Debi being support for the kids emotionally during this.  I’m sure Shalom is torn and she was raised essentially being taught husband is above all.  Someone in those kids lives are hopefully there to hold them.

      I just think of a first grade class I subbed for this year with Aiden, Kayden, Grayden, and Zayden.

      was Braden absent?

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.
