A PINK KNITTED BONNET

I don’t know who I am trying to kid when I say that “I’m not that into pink”. Unbelievably I say and think it quite often, Have you seen this place? I think I have mentioned before that a tutor at college once told me that looking at the colour pink induces the same happiness as the sun, well I get my fair share of smiles around here. I don’t quite know what I would do if the husband and I ever had a son? Best they go shopping alone.
These kittens are lucky they don’t have to wear clothes because I do have fond memories of being six years old and pushing our Tabby cat around the garden in my dolls pram and him being quite indifferent about wearing a pink knitted bonnet, even though he was a boy.Anyway back to the pink and it must be true, lots of things make me smile from cheek to cheek but a pastel pink cake is up there near the top of the list. This one baked for a friends birthday dinner at ours yesterday was rather tall and got demolished in no time.The strawberries somehow got left behind but they made a good breakfast this morning. I saw the idea for cake bunting over at Kiki La Ru, I was after the lovely set called Amelie, but I didn’t leave enough time to order it, so I made my own.

    the cake looks delicious… but what makes me laugh is the tiny tail gracefully wrapped on the furry little paws! hahahahahaha
    cats are so fun! :D

    I love how you made the cake extra high and the icing & garland just finish it off beautifully. Pink is my favourite colour too.

    Your kittens make my heart melt. I am desperate for my own, but renting our home proves an obstacle. I’ll have to make do with admiring your little tigers for now!
