1. RAISE THE WOOF!!’ It’s Lucky Dog Bake Sale Time!

    The cats are ‘raisin’ the woof’ for our yearly contribution to help out our furry friends over at Lucky Dog Rescue!

    Fat Cat Creamery is teaming up with Fluff Bake Bar to help raise funds by making our special Chocolate-covered Cherry in Vanilla ice cream for the Fluff Bake Bar’s Valentine Bake Sale, so you know it’s gonna be a sweet treat for your sweet..tie? (Erm…you know what we mean!)

    To place your order, just click on the (above) menu, and it will bring you right where you need to be, so you can ‘raise the woof’, too!

    Additional deets:
    * Pick-ups for orders will be at Kraftsmen Baking (611 W. 22nd St. in the Heights) on February 13th and 14th.
    (you aren’t walking in empty-handed this time!)

    ** Also, if you or someone you know can help with pick-ups, please email Lucky Dog Rescue directly: luckyrescue@gmail.com

    ***Just don’t feed Chocolate-covered Cherry ice cream to your actual canine friends, as dogs + chocolate do NOT mix well.

    But you know what does?

    Cats + Dogs = <3 (especially for Valentine’s Day!)

  8. In other ice cream related news…

    As the cats are hard at work, putting the finishing touches on the parlour, we thought we’d share a little light reading to hold you over :)

    UK company Lick Me I’m Delicious (first of all, how awesome is that name, amiright?) created glow-in-the-dark ice cream.

    So, what’s the secret ingredient to its phosphorescence (aka glowy power), you ask?

    Oh I don’t know, just a little bit of jellyfish protein (mmmmm, tasty!).

    That’s fine, right? You don’t have to eat it, just admire it from afar or hold the cone at a birthday party or a band encore or
    whatever you do with $225 desserts.

    Wrong.

    Because the protein’s pH is activated by your tongue, basically the more you lick it, the more it glows.

    The verdict is still out for the cats—we’re not sure how we feel about all that jellyfish mixing with our hairballs. Would you try it? 

    Still curious? Read more here.
