Pretty in Pink

Sometimes (often after a long vacation) you return to reality to find that a day is just too much, and you need something, anything to make it lighter. I say lighter on purpose. Not happier, cheerier, jollier. Sometimes days can just weigh you down, drag on and on, run you through the muck. 
And then, if you are a creative soul like myself (which I know you are!)
you get an idea in your head. Which no matter how ridiculous it may be, you are physically compelled to carry out, you just know it will make things better and you are determined to carry through.
So it came to be that I made a bright pink mini cake. Pink cake, pink frosting, strawberry topped.
The plan was hatched early on and during lunch I obtained the pans necessary to carry it out.
Thank you Sur La Table.
After work the rest of the necessary ingredients were procured. 
Finally, around seven o'clock in the evening, my masterpiece was born.
The bright pink cake of my dreams.
And you know what? It did cheer me up.
I hope it brightens your day as well.
In the end when you've cut it down the middle, split it in two and devoured its' most delicious center
you find that you feel a little bit better about your long day at work. :)

That cake looks so phenomenally delicious. I once tried to make a strawberry cake from scratch -- it was a disaster. Next time, I use the box mix like you did (smart girl).
