Inedible candy is kind of a cruel tease, but it sure is pretty!
You can't fool me, rice krispy treats! I see you under all that makeup, trying to masquerade as a cupcake. That's a low and dirty trick. You know I love you for what you really are with all of your buttery goodness. You don't have to pretend, be proud of who you are!
It's been a long time since I had strawberry milk, and while I don't remember it with particular fondness, There is something appealing about a strawberry flavored cookie with a creamy sweet filling. I'd almost even prefer it if it was a little artificial tasting.
This taps right into that toddler part of the brain where you want to pick up a whole pie and smash your face into it. Taking a big ol' spoon and jamming it into a jar of cake and frosting and having no regard for the mess you're inevitably going to make sounds so childishly satisfying. Where's my big spoon?
Normally I'd scream overkill at a cake this busy but there is some amazing balance going on here. A striped rainbow heart inside a striped rainbow cake? A rainbow of fondant sprinkles so perfect they must have been placed there by very patient elves? I swoon for this kind of overkill.
