I had plump, sweet delicious blueberries and a simple cake recipe. What could go wrong?
Plus, I had Heineken keeping me company. I ask you again, what could go wrong? (Yes, I'm drinking beer out of a wine glass. And yes, in retrospect I'm wondering whether Mr. Heineken had anything to do with the detour.)
I should have started to suspect that things were not going well when I started dropping eggshells left and right into the batter.
From then on, there were things like discovering there was not enough baking powder, trying to make it up with baking soda, the cake starting to burn before being cooked through, the cooking time taking eons longer than it was supposed to...and ended with me throwing the cake in the trash after determining it inedibleness. Ah, those beautiful blueberries.
After that detour, I righted myself and focused on something definitely more promising. I present to you my two little ottomans of joy.
Yes, that is pug fur sprinkled on the carpet.
Yes, that is a pug fur sticking out of Bunni's eye. I swear that stuff is like kudzu.
