it had a cupcake on it

7

There are a few things in the cake world that are stressful. Transporting 120 cupcakes, 40 tiny and fragile embellishments, and a two tiered (one double layer, the other a triple) cake 30 minutes around windy roads to a wedding is one of those things! The trunk of my car was full of boxes and the back seat was full of all the cupcake stands.
Red Velvet cupcakes and Carrot Cake cupcakes! Both cupcakes were topped with Cream Cheese frosting. And 3 rice krispie treats :) She had a few friends that weren’t fond of cake, couldn’t have dairy, and one who was vegan. Those vegan marshmallows are hard to melt down, man! What is in them??? But I learned some new things about Vegan butter so that was pretty interesting. I even gave the left-over edges to my family and they liked the flavor too.
I’ll post the cake and display in a different post!

Favorite pet you owned?

It’s a bit of a tossup… but I’ve got a few candidates

Frodo was by far the tamest hamster I had… he even licked my hands all the time!

Then there was my last hamster, Cupcake… she was really tame too, and she seemed to pay the most attention to us. A lot of hamsters didn’t seem to acknowledge that we existed, but she’d always stand up and freeze when she heard someone coming.

And then REX… good ol’ Rex… our talking cockatiel. He greeted us every morning when we got up with “Hey, birdie!!”, whistled some made up songs, and he only ever got grumpy at us in the evening when he was tired. When your bird speaks English to you, it kinda reaches family member status. (Also, he constantly looked like he was smiling.)

Tim was a stray who came along in the winter. He was the most ridiculously affectionate cat I’ve seen. He scraped himself against our legs and plopped down on top of our feet. He also liked being held like a baby.

Luckily, LUNA’S still around. She’s with my mom though. So a bunch of mouser cats showed up at my mom’s house from time to time, and when we got within probably 30 feet, they scrambled away as fast as they could. So this small, scrawny cat shows up one day, meows really quietly, and slowly approaches me… then plops down on her back and rolls around. She pretty much trusted me from the beginning. :o

So we’ve fattened her up, and she’s a lot less scared of strangers now. She’s also a pretty good hunter, so she can feed herself sometimes… she caught a vole once, and even a ground squirrel. (And also about 50 million house finches)

anonymous asked:

hi lin! is everything ok at your side? you haven't been posting anything much lately so i kinda got worried ^^;

My dear cupcake 💕

I can’t tell how happy I am that you’re worried? I’d like to give you a big bear hug 💫

The situation is the following:
I am alive, but I am super stressed. 
Since I moved from Japan back to Germany I have trouble readapting, which is actually the least of my problems 🙈 
For the past weeks, I’ve been living with my mum because I had trouble finding a new apartment. Luckily, that issue is solved now but I can’t move in there until October. Nevertheless, at the moment I don’t have a personal space and therefore I lack the environment to feel comfortable enough to produce something ‘readable’. I tried, but I’ve never been so unsatisfied and frustrated while writing. Where the last problem ends, a new one starts 😂 At the moment I’m preparing for the move and try to organize everything, which is actually nagging at me because I should use that time for my main problem. In around four weeks I’m going to have an important geography exam. Why is it so important? Because my governmental support is depending on whether I pass or not. I need the credit points in order to receive further support and that support is actually my only income at the moment. So if I’m not able to pass I won’t be able to pay my tuition fee, my rent and my food. Basically, my whole life depends on a stupid exam. I wouldn’t be that afraid, but before I went to Japan I already failed the exact same exam once, now I’m putting a lot of pressure on myself 🙈 

Those are principally the reasons I’m not active at the moment. Even if I have time to spare, I can’t really focus on writing and instead of giving you sugarcubs something half-assed I rather chose to wait until this storm has passed. 

Truth to be told, I miss tumblr and all of you guys so much and I feel so sad to be unable to provide content at the moment 😓 I apologize for leaving you guys stuck in midair, though I can’t express how much it means to me that you still think about me 💖

I will definitely be back! Neither this blog nor @boku-no-family are abandoned!
Thank you so much for sticking with me 💫

Lots of love ❤ your Queen of Chaos, Lin 

P.s.: I’m daily checking up on my blogs, though I’m currently not writing you can always talk to me about everything! 

cupcakes are totally a breakfast food

Carmilla Movie Theory

You’ve asked me to tell you a story, to weave you a theory. My inbox sings with your requests to try and jumble everything together. You ask. I’ll deliver. 

Originally posted by loveisweakness-clexa4life

I’ll give it my best shot because there’s nothing I like more than a challenge. We’re sticking to the usual plan of trying to make the most ridiculous but still kinda plausible theory possible. To start us off, here’s what canon information I have to work with.

  1. The Existing Carmilla Mythos - So we naturally have everything from the 3 seasons to work with. You’ve seen the web series. You know.
  2. The Original Trailer - This is the one on the beach that announced the movie. Frankly, I’m curious as to how much of this will actually apply because from my understanding it was put together before they had a script. As a scene, it’s probably cut.  I’m treating the information as canon because I don’t have enough material to be cutting ANY of it.
  3. The New Cast Information - Literally yesterday, we received the names of three new cast members. Seeing as I’m going to make the case that these are all literary references (stay tuned) just their names alone give me info. They are:
    1. Emily Bronte
    2. Charlotte Bronte
    3. The Woman In Black

Now we do our magical conjecture and fun fact building to try and whip it all together into a coherent story. Basically, I’m going to write you a movie because I’m a novelist at heart and a story structure buff. We’re going to try and figure out what we can expect when the movie releases in the fall (?). Buckle up, creampuffs.

 This is going to get 7k words worth of messy from parents to exes to fish gods to old school novellas.

You know that post going around about making boxed cake mix taste like homemade cake? I’ve been doing it for the past year or so, and not only are the cupcakes significantly better, with chocolate cake mix, you get 30 cupcakes, rather than almost 24. With yellow, you’ll get 25 or 26 instead of almost 24.

So remember, when you use boxed cake mix, use

1) milk instead of water (I use whole milk)

2) melted butter instead of oil

3) a little bit of almond extract, and

4) one extra egg.

This, plus stabilized whipped cream frosting, makes for the best cupcakes you’ll ever have.

These were just the cosplays I managed to remember to get pictures of. There were so many other amazing cosplays that I didn’t get pictures of.

“So where are we going again?” Shiro asked as he threw an arm around Keith’s neck, drawing him in and ruffling his hair.
“Hey, stop it! Get off!” Keith ducked out from his grip and shoved him away, trying to fix his hair. “Why are you like this, you’re so annoying!” Shiro chuckled and nudged him with his elbow. “I’m your big brother. It’s my job to annoy you. Now, answer the question.”
Keith rolled his eyes and muttered “Adopted brother. Anyway, we’re going to this cafe or bakery place that Pidge won’t stop talking about. Says their coffee is really good and the food is ‘better than free wifi.’”
Shiro raised his eyebrows until they nearly disappeared under his tuff of hair.
“Better than free wifi? Pidge said that? Huh, wow. They must be really good then.”
Keith hummed in agreement and stuffed his hands in his red jacket, pulling it closer. Shiro smiled at the action zipped up his black and gray jacket, burying his nose into it.

It was late fall, and the breeze held a chilly bit. The wind whispered of winter, and the trees had begun to shed their leaves, some of which where floating in the air, softly floating the the ground. Shiro was enjoying the slight crunch they made when he stepped on them when Keith grabbed his arm.
“Hey, I think this is it.”
Shiro stopped and observed the building before them. It was a simple building, one that you could easily pass if you weren’t looking for it. The building was made out of worn brick, with a chalkboard sign in front the entrance that read: ‘Welcome to Voltron! Please do not touch pastries with your hands. Use your tongue.’ Shiro chuckled at the sign while Keith just stared.
“What kind of a name is Voltron?”
Shiro shrugged.
“I have no idea, but you have to admit, it is a pretty unique name that would be hard to forget. Now come on, I’m getting hungry.”
Shiro opened the door and was immediately hit with a wall of delicate dents of vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, the roast of coffee beans, and other heavenly scents. Keith moaned at the smell and Shiro couldn’t blame him. The smell almost made him weak in the knees.

They walked into the shop and looked around. It was a very cozy cafe. Their were multiple colored booths and chairs and even beanbags, coming in black, blue, red, green, and yellow. They was stools along the bar, and there was a glass case full of desserts and pastries that had Shiro’s mouth watering. Shiro was about to press his face right up against the glass when I kind voice greeted them.
“Hey! Welcome to Voltron!”
Keith and Shiro turned toward the voice and saw a bolder of man in its place. He was wearing cargo shorts and a yellow shirt accompanied with a yellow apron. His hair was tied back with a bandana, and had a name rage that read ‘Hunk.’ Keith read it and arched an eyebrow at him, and Hunk just laughed.
“Yeah, before you ask, it’s real. Everybody calls me that.”
Shiro smiled and greeted him. “It’s nice to meet you Hunk. My name’s Shiro and this is Keith. Pidge suggested this place and highly recommended it.”
Hunk’s eyes lit up and gave them a beaming smile. “Oh Pidge! Yeah I know them! Me and Lance have become friends with them because they come so much. Oh! And Lance is the pastry king. I’m the coffee master, so it evens out.”
Shiro nodded and turned his attention to Keith. “Hey Keith, do you-Keith?”
Keith was not listening to either of them, eyes glued to a small white cup on the register, face furiously red. Shiro looked at him with a confused look before picking up the cup that was causing Keith’s dilemma. When Shiro read the cup, he sputtered and started laughing loudly, cheeks slightly flushing.
Hunk cocked his head. “What? What is it?”
Shiro turned the cup to Hunk, who could clearly read the font in neat loopy handwriting: “Just put your tip in here. See how it feels.” Hunk immediately paled and then change to a shade of purple then red. He quickly grabbed the cup and threw it away.
“LANCE THAT IS SO INAPPROPRIATE WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!”
They were able to hear mad cackling in the back of the cafe where the kitchen was. Hunk turned back to them, straightening his apron, flush still on his cheeks.
“I’m so sorry, that won’t happen again. So, uh, what would you like to order?”

Shiro peered at the menu, tapping a finger against his chin. He looked at Keith who just shrugged, as lost as he was.
Shiro turned back to Hunk. “What do you recommend?”
Hunk’s eyes lit up and he clapped his hands together.
“Oh man, where do I start? Everything Lance makes is amazing. Hmm, let’s go with something exotic. How about miguelitos and tarta de Santiago?”
Keith furrowed his brow. “What the heck are those?”
Hunk chuckled.
“Oh yeah, sorry miguelitos is this pastry that is made up of like a million thin pastry layers and each layer is filled with chocolate or cream. It’s then dusted with powdered sugar. Tarta de Santiago is a really thin, moist almond cake. Powdered sugar is on top of it as well. As you probably guessed, their both Hispanic desserts. Lance likes to show off his heritage.”

Shiro hummed gave him a smile. “Alright! We’ll get both of those, and I’ll get an espresso. Keith?”
Keith looked at the menu again. “Do you have soy milk?”
Hunk nodded and smile.
“Okay, I’ll just have a hot chocolate. With extra whipped cream on top.”
Shiro chuckled.
Keith glared at him. “What?”
“Oh nothing, nothing! Just glad to see my little brother growing up.”
Shiro laughed hard as Keith flushed and punched him in the arm as he paid Hunk.

He put the change into the new tip cup and went to sit down at table in the corner. It wasn’t long before they had sat down when Hunk brought them their food, perfectly balancing them on a small tray.
“Order up! I hope you like it!” Hunk sent them a smile and went back to the counter.
Shiro looked at the coffee and food and inhaled deeply, the smell making his mouth water.
“Let’s not waste anymore time! Let’s dig in!” Keith and Shiro both reached for the miguelitos and popped it in their mouths. Shiro’s eyes fluttered closed as the pastry melted in his mouth, and chocolate covered every taste bud. He almost had to stifle a moan. And Keith wasn’t in any better shape. He was looking at the patty in awe, as if it held the secrets to the universe. He quickly looked up at Shiro.
“Wanna try the tarta thingy?”
“Oh heck yeah.”
Shiro and Keith both picked up a slice, gave a mock cheers, and bit into it with a crisp crunch. However, as soon as the cake met their tongues, it practically melted away. Keith grabbed both pastures and shoved them in his mouth at the same time.
“I am in heaven.”
Shiro opened his mouth to agree, when an excited voice cut him off.

“HUNK!! HUNK, I DID IT!! You’ve got to try this! I’ve combined a churro and a cupcake into one blessed love child!”
Shiro turned toward the voice, laughing with amusement in his eyes. He went to take a drink of his coffee, but that’s when he laid eyes on the excited baker. Shiro chocked on his coffee, spraying across the room and spluttering the hot liquid out of his lungs.
“Holy shit! Are you alright Shiro?”
Shiro ignored Keith’s concern and whipped around to get a better view of the baker. Said baker had warm mocha skin, as rich as the coffee he was drinking. His hair was a warm chocolate, shaggy and barely reaching the top of his eyes. And his eyes. Oh god his eyes. They were the deepest blue Shiro had ever seen, reminding him of the ocean and they were so bright with life and energy. And he was covered with flour, which Shiro found absolutely adorable. It was covering the front of his apron and was even smeared across one of his cheeks, and Shiro wanted nothing more than to brush it away with his thumb.
“Uh…Shiro?”
Keith waved a hand in front of Shiro’s face, who just knocked it out the way, leaning out of his seat. Keith followed his gaze and let out a long sigh when he realized what he was staring at. Keith kicked him in the shin, finally getting his attention.
“Seriously Shiro? Can please control your emotions.”
Shiro gave him a small pout, but still turned toward the boy. “Keith, oh Keith. He’s so pretty. No, gorgeous. Did you see his eyes? They’re so blue and beautiful.”
Keith groaned and dropped his head on the table.
“Shiro we came here to try the food, not try the baker.”
“I’m not complaining.”
“Shiro!!”

Shiro ignored his scandalous tone and continued to stare at the baker who was talking animatedly about his new creation, hands flying everywhere. Keith let out another long sigh and sat back in his chair.
“I am not ready for all this pining. You’re a mess Shiro. Remind me the curse Pidge for suggesting this place.”
“Well remind me to thank Pidge.”
Shiro then stepped out of his chair, walking toward the duo.
“S-Shiro?! Where are you going?”
Shiro tossed him a grin over his shoulder.
“Well, in going to introduce myself and give my compliments to the chef. Don’t want to be rude!”
Keith groaned and lightly banged his head on his table, cursing everything, especially Pidge. Somehow he knew they had set this up. He was going kill that gremlin. As soon he could get Shiro away from that baker who was throwing Shiro fingers guns along with a smirk. Keith groaned again. He had a feeling he would back to this cafe again. A lot.
