I love cake. Well, I guess there aren’t many people that hate cake…but I really really love it. My mother was a big baker and we baked a cake every Friday. It was our Sabbath tradition. So, I want to integrate it into my new life with my hubby.
Today isn’t a baking lesson, just a little cuteness for your day. But this is the very helpful baking pan set I used from Target. I bought a simple white boxed cake and used some of the massive amounts of pink food coloring I have lying around the house…yes I have so so much pink food coloring. I gathered 5 bowls and added 1 cup of batter to each bowl. Then I added no food coloring to the first bowl, .5 drops to the second, 1 drop to the third, 2 drops to the fourth bowl, and 3 drops of food coloring to the fifth bowl. I mixed them well and added them to the pan and baked them as directed. They baked very fast. Keep an eye on them.
And it was yummy too!
Maybe you haven’t noticed but pink is kinda my favorite color. Actually, pink is a serious obsession of mine. Things like this always get me thinking. Why do we favor colors? There have actually been quite a few studies about this and it is referred to as the ecological valence theory. Nerd alert 🤓!!! I won’t get too deep but basically we’ve evolved to use color for survival then we feel all the feels when we see our favorite colors. The more feels we feel the more we favor our favorite color. That’s the evolution/socialization debate in like two sentences. Where’s my Pulitzer?
Ultimately, I think Aerosmith said it right …
“Pink it’s my new obsession
Pink it’s not even a question,
Pink on the lips of your lover, ’cause
Pink is the love you discover”
“Pink it was love at first sight, and
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight.”
