The gals at Port2Port have bring your pet to blog day on Thursday’s. There’s a sort of stigma attached to posting about your pets and in particular your cat. Quite divided and definite opinions. I’m not sure where I sit. Maybe if I had children I’d post about them, would there be complaints/judgement then? Who knows. Anyhow as I have a cat and no children you’ll have to put up with loverly Spud. Whilst trying to photograph my latest, and I think so far my most successful, cupcake adventure Spud decided to help.
We have the "hmm I wonder what this is" pose.
Followed by the I’ll just give it a whack with my paw to see if it responds.
And finally, think I’ll stick my paw in it and then give it a good sniff just to be sure.
Cupcake recipe is the Classic cupcake from "Hey There Cupcake" by Clare Crespo. She offers great advice. I made my way to a cake decorating supplies store (a whole OTHER world) and purchased some real food colouring. Not that fake supermarket stuff. The red pictured here is actually a no taste gel! Pretty cool stuff. I’ve also used some very very fine disco dust, you can sort of see the irradescence of it on top.
EDIT – Damn it, Not Martha’s gone and kicked my cupcake makin’ ass 🙂 Stunning!
