Who else is a black cat lover? These cute little harbingers of ‘bad luck’ are often unloved and make people nervous. Those people are nerds and might be missing out on their perfect pet! For those that love these little black bundles of cuddles - I have the perfect coaster project for you! One cake can make up to 5 coasters!
