Starbucks has cupcakes now! They aren't the greatest cupcakes ever, but what I love is the special box they come in that transports the cupcake without damaging it.

The funny thing about this is that the first time I brought one home from Sit&Knit, I left the cupcake box sitting in my knitting carrying case when I came home. I was in the dining room when I heard a snuffing noise. When I went to the living room, Oscar was half in, half hanging out of my knitting case. He had managed to open the box and eat the cupcake, paper and all. He was licking out the last of the frosting when I caught him.

The cry I let out made Aaron think I had chopped off a finger. Oscar checks my knitting everytime I come home, hoping there is a cupcake in there for him.


  1. that's nothing (re:Oscar and the cupcake)! My dog ate a tube of lipstick, case and all, as a puppy. We had to give him three or four baths to get the bright pink shade off of his face! Somehow he managed to get the lipstick everywhere when he ate it. Then there was the day he ate several marbles...

  2. Is there a website for the Sit & Knit?
    I am moving to rochester in 6 weeks.

  3. I saw them today for the first time and of course purchased one. It wasn't bad but I didn't get a special box!

  4. I'm totally digging that cool box! They would be perfect for my cupcake soaps. I need to find them now.

  5. Awwwww...Oscar is just absolutely adorable! I have a 11 month old pug myself. They just won't let you stop laughing! :o)
