I wish I had a cute pair of socks and some sewing skills lying around so I could make my own squishy friends!
It's rainy season for sure, but that's good because it means we have the chance to see more rainbows! Here in Seattle there isn't a lot of color yet. People here tend to dress like the weather in grays and browns and greens. On the grayest of gray days I'd like to have a few of these cookies stashed away somewhere to brighten things up a little.
Admit it, you've still got a few candy canes hanging around. You're feeling a little guilty because you know you shouldn't eat them but you don't want to save some old cheap candy until next year. Go ahead, garnish some pancakes with them. I won't tell.
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.
