Can I have a Cupcake and can you please control your god damn dog?

I made the first batch of Kitchenaid cupcakes. Lime and meringue cupcakes, they were so good. I sat down and ate one with an affogato and watched the big fatties run about and cry, then I cried. We all cried, but they didn't get a cupcake. Both kitchen items were gifts from Veikko, the cool old dude who happens to be my Grandpa. Thanks Poppy x






I now know that I am the one and only responsible muther f-ing dog owner in this suburb. I took Sybil running today, and by gods I was pretty close to landing a flying kick in the back of the last guys head. I don't usually advocate violence, however when it comes to people who obviously have bypassed 'survival of the fittest' due to their good social standing (I live in a toff suburb) then I can make exceptions. Yes your dog is very clever as he runs alongside you unaided. However meathead, my wily hound likes to eat/maim/kill/tear jugulars form other animals. So please keep your dog on a f***ing leash.

I love your comments about annoying dog owners and I love hearts too!

Thank you so much for your comment on dogs not on leads! Also living in a toffy suburb I was starting to think I was the only person in the world who had this issue! I love my Irish Setters to pieces but there is always that moment of alarm, panic and horror when some tosser decides to let their dog run leadless around the park or street... and they bolt straight into the path of my frenzied mad duo (or worse, try to run past and overtake them).

Yes- their dog is probably a perfect pooch trained to perfection....but my pups are (alas) not, and this lack in general dog courtesy doesnt help the matter!

Very comforting to hear that my hounds and I arent alone on this problem :-)

Cup cakes look friggin amazing and they make me wish i was more talented in the baking arena. Also completely understand about the dog and the tendancy to think their pup is far too talented to be put on a lead...think about those of us who have real dogs!

love your work.

The cupcakes look awesome! I am sitting here nibbling on the Lavender and Chocolate ones I made this morning - so I am totally feeling the LOVE!
It's a shame when there are folks who think they are 'above the law'. These are usually the schmucks that stuff it up for everyone else!

GASP! I'm so jealous of your Kitchen Aid. And that lemon juicer. And that green cup....
I don't suppose you have a staffy do you? I do, and while she's actually mostly pretty friendly to other dogs she has never taken kindly to other dogs hairing up to her at 100 miles an hour. Especially if they're bigger than her (and yep, she is always on a lead).
And that heart. Ooooh be still my own. I always thought if I was ever brave enough to get a tattoo (which I am sure I never will be) it would be of a musical score from a piece of music that I love, and it would spiral its way around one of my limbs. Sorry for that off topic waffle, but your heart just reminded me... XXX

What a lovely Poppy you have! Now lime and meringue that's a heady mix...and coupled with an affogato, well that's my idea of heaven. Know what you mean about the dog owners...reminds me of one of the fathers of a three year old at a supply teaching job I had in another toffy suburb...he said she was fine to play outside without supervision for an hour of so until he collected her after work as 'she was a highly intelligent child' (a little snort of laughter did escape my lips I'm afraid)...no doubt this is what this man thought of his dog....
