I’ve been busy, busy, busy here preparing for the girls’ birthdays. Tomorrow Meg is going to be 1.
I feel so sad.
Anyway, I made a batch of icing for their cupcakes. The whole party is pink, so I decided the frosting would be pink, naturally. I bought Wilton food coloring in “rose.” I figured it would be rosy pink, or else hot pink like the label.
Umm, not quite. It reminds me more of Pepto Bismol.
At least it’s not too subtle, right? If you want subtle, don’t go for this color.
Oh, and if you make sickeningly pink frosting DO NOT let your soon-to-be 3-year-old lick the beater unless you also want her to be bright pink.
Her tongue is not actually that color.
And although I don’t have a picture to illustrate this one, here’s one more tip for you – definitely do not let your almost-1-year-old touch the beater then rub it in her hair.
Take my advice.
