Some of you know that I love to photograph cupcakes, especially those from Whole Foods Market. Why? Because they are always works of art! Yesterday, I spied this snowman cupcake among their holiday desserts and took him home with me.
I set him up with a few Christmas decorations so he'd feel right at home.
He was just adorable and I managed to get some photos before Miss Gracie hopped up on the table. She is the best cupcake-sniffing kitty around. It doesn't matter where she is, she knows when the cupcakes come out. She left her warm sleeping spot atop the Comcast cable box in the next room and immediately began to figure out how she could taste the snowman.
When I wasn't looking, she hopped right into the scene and everything fell on my cotton batting snow.
Mr. Snowman didn't get hurt too bad; his scarf was smeared, some landed on his cheek and his carrot nose got smashed a bit.
It all happened so fast, but Gracie managed to get a tiny of his chocolate arm. I quickly took that away as chocolate is poisonous to cats but she managed to get a few licks in. And that I know only because she took a big bath afterwards.
Then she promptly found a space under the table I was working on. Did she want more snowman? Not sure, but in any case she always wants to be in the middle of the action when the camera and cupcakes come out.
In any case, Whole Foods Market still has the prettiest cupcakes around!
