Monday Love: More cupcales & a painting





Which cupcake frosting tastes sweeter, the pink one or the yellow one?

Interesting question, and it shows so much about the power of color: all of the kids present on that day, thought the pink ones were sweeter and more yummy. Even though eitehr way the creme was spiced with lemon, one child said, the pink one tasted like raspberry ... So - it really IS true that pink makes people happy and adds some extra-sweetness to your life - make the test today:
Put your pink sunglasses on and smile at everyone you see!

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    My mother used to make the most delicious cupcakes with yellow cake mix. Then the frostings were of pink or green, chocolate or vanilla, but she always let me put in the color to the frosting mix. Oh dearest, you have taken me back to a SWEET part of my past that means the world to me. LOVE IT! How are you feeling? I am 100% HEALED from that gastly cold! You must be having snow, but we have nothing. It will be an interesting spring and summer here.

    Sending you wishes for a perfect MONDAY, Martina!

  14. Rahul: Strangely, the boys liked the pink cupcakes better as well - although they would NEVER wear something in that color.
