Missing Cupcakes and update on Scott

Yes, I know it's the 15th of August. I had joined another baking group before I came up with my resolution to lose weight: MS Cupcake Club (or MSC). Betty of Eat My Cupcake had bought the book Cupcakes by Martha Stewart and started up a monthly group to try all the recipes.

This is our first month and I already feel like a loser: Betty picked Chocolate Salted-Caramel Cupcakes as our challenge and I haven't made them yet, here's what happened:
Wednesday was my day off and I had planned on baking the cupcakes that day. However my cat decided differently: right after breakfast Senna came and sat on my lap, while I was petting here I discovered a crawly creeper on her.... a flea!!! Eeeeekkkkkk......

Further inspection revealed that Scott seemed to have the same problem, so the rest of my day was spent running to the shop to get anti-flea medicine for both Senna and Scoot, but also Joey (my parents dog that had spent the weekend at my house while my parent were out of town), changing all the bedding, putting all the pets sof toys in a plastic bag and vacuuming the entire house.

On Thursday I called the vet because they were supposed to have the results for Scotts liver biopsy. Things were not good: it seems like Scott produces too much corticosteroids which means that he probably has Cushings disease. To determine for sure if he has Cushings we now have to do a urine test. So for the next three days (today is day 1) I have to collect some urine at 8 am and on day 2 he has to take medicine: 4 tablets at 12, 4 at 18 and 4 at 24 o'clock.....

I'm sorry to dissapoint those of you who came here for the Chocolate Salted-Caramel Cupcakes, they're not here... yet!!! I will definetly try to fit this in the next week and blog about them!!

You have far too much on your plate (bad joke) to make cupcakes...totally understandable! I hope Scott will be OK. I didn't make my salted caramel cupcakes either yet, but I don't have any good excuses.

I, too, hope that Scott will be ok. You have had a very busy week with one thing or another, so it's very understandable that you were not able to bake cupcakes! xxoo

Whew...sounds like you've had a lot going on! Good luck with the cupcakes and MUCH SUCCESS in the weight loss efforts.


No worries, my dear cupcake friend! Everyone has a life outside of their kitchen!

Hope to see your cupcake results soon!

Happy Baking!
