Show of hands, who else loves the color pink?! It is probably no suprise that I absolutely adore the color. Basically, if it comes in pink I’ll take it. Not convinced? In my fashion school color theory class, I actually wrote a paper about my devotion to the feminine color. Needless to say, When I saw this pink velvet cake mix at the grocery store I was beyond estatic. I instantly put it in my shopping cart without a second thought.
After that, the hard part came: what was I going make with it? It really couldn’t be just anything. It had to be something really special. It’s a pink cake mix afterall!
Whenever I’m stumped I always think back to some of my old recipes. One of my all time favorite recipes is my cookie cake from the blog. I paired it with my all time favorite buttercream icing (you will seriously never need another icing recipe, thanks to one unique ingredient). Together, these two are showstopping. You will definitely want to serve this as your birthday cake, from now on!
