Rainbows are seasonally appropriate for every season! They never go out of style.
Nothing says love like a heart shaped dessert delicately dusted with cocoa powder. Sadly, I fear cocoa powder as it seems inevitable that I will accidentally breathe some of it in when I take the first bite and then I'll cough all crazy and destroy everything. How I wish I could enjoy a dusted treat.
When I was a kid, the closest I ever got to decorating my own cake was a cookie and a little tube of gel icing. I had plenty of fun with just that. Imagine how awesome it would have been if we had edible paper back then? I can't say I'm not a little jealous of kids these days.
I need to sit down. I need to breathe calmly into this bag to keep from fainting because this is possibly the most perfect cake I have ever seen and I've been looking at cakes for a long while, my friends. I marvel at the gradient pinks, the delicate layers, the thin filling that doesn't interrupt the gorgeous color. And the little paper banner on top! Perfection! I can die happy now, thanks!
I'd like to see a crew of fashion designers work with a bunch of pastry chefs to design amazing desserts. We could mash up Project Runway and one of those Top Chef whatevers and make a kajillion dollars! I could see this as Betsy Johnson's entry for a super simple petit fours.
I love a repeating pattern, especially on food. Even better when it's done with something as delicious and natural as blueberries. Nothing fussy, no artificial coloring or hours slaving over perfectly smooth icing, just a fantastic and undoubtedly delicious polka dotted tower of celebration. I'll toast to that!
