The Dog Cupcake.

Yesterday morning, The Human Male and I ate at a great little place in Old Town Alexandria called Bittersweet Cafe. Bittersweet is a cute little deli-type restaurant with sandwiches, incredible baked goods, and a "hot bar" that changes I think fairly frequently. They also serve their iced tea and lemonade in the biggest cups I've ever seen. You actually need two hands to hold it, which is perfect during DC's oppressive Augusts.

I hate to admit it, but I sometimes "forget" about Bittersweet-- we tend to go to the same couple of places when we hit up the OT, so it's always an afterthought. So it was a very fun surprise when we found out that they make dog cupcakes. They make little ones for puppies and regular/huge ones for normal-sized dogs, and they're carrot cake flavored (made with carrots, flour, and honey, with some kind of cream cheese-looking icing). We had to get one for Alice.

When we gave it to her, she was so thrilled that she didn't know what to do with it. I mushed it up a bit and then she got the point and went to town.

When I walked back in the kitchen, the plate and floor were spotless. Looks like Alice is a fan of Bittersweet now, too!

I think I would very much like cupcakes too. I'll have to ask Mom to get one for me from the local doggie bakery. Thanks for the idea!
