Mmmm- not getting cat hair on the cupcakes or licking them tastes gooooood!
These cupcakes were pretty easy- the hardest part was looking for the Chianti bottle for a prop and picking the best picture!
It was fun to squirt the pasta all over the cupcakes and sing a little song I probably learned from Sesame Street- "La- la -la -la -la la."
The book said to put in half a teaspoon of cocoa powder to the frosting and four drops of yellow food coloring. I think this made it way too "greige", the color for 2010 according to Joan Rivers. I ended up putting in about ten drops of yellow and some more frosting.

Events coming up are going to require quite a bit of searching for the special candy ingedients and recipes for things like vegan cupcakes- so I will be busy running all over town trying to find candy stores that let Buster come in and shop with me! We like Z Cioccolato on Columbus. I also found some pastel marshmallows, after dreaming about them (you don't wanna know), at Safeway, but they are in the shape of bunnnies. I'll just have to cut them up with clean, sharp scissors.
We discovered that Buster is probably Bichon and Poodle- a bichonoodle! Now we can go to poodle mix meet-ups!
Abbondanza is Italian for Bon Appetit (more or less).
Kiss an Italian today! Hey, nice cupcakes!
