A Pinkalicious Saturday....

So I thought in the spirit of Thanksgiving Weekend - where it's about giving thanks, counting your blessings...and of course, indulging in great food...

...that I would feature my red velvet cake with pink cream cheese frosting...for Pink Saturday.  I started with my favorite cake mix from Williams Sonoma....

Love the "for temporary relief from hunger" label.....

Had to get out my pink utensils so I could stay in theme....
This doesn't look very healthy....but does look tasty










I can attest to the fact that it 
turned out as good as it looks....
Happy Pink Saturday!






Linking up to Beverly's How Sweet the Sound's Pink Saturday.

Okay---you can have some cake but don't eat cheese with it;>) Now you KNOW I am OFF sweets at the moment and you are posting a picture of red velvet cake? That is the one cake I always associate with my home and the times when my gramma came over. She must have loved it because my Mother always made it for her.

I LOVE your fluted cake plate! It is perfect for a pink cake-looks like it is surrounded by ruffles! Hugs- Diana

My favorite scene from the movie Steel Magnolias is at the wedding when the aunt makes the groom's cake shaped like an armadillo made out of Red Velvet cake. I need to try the Wms Sonoma brand. I went into my 1st Williams Sonoma store in Sarasota a couple of weeks ago. So many awesome things to see there.

I love your pink cooking utensils!! My mom was over for Thanksgiving and couldn't believe how little I have to cook with, so I think I need to stock up with pink utensils and then perhaps I'll cook more! :) Your Red Velvet cake is beautiful! Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I could smell that cake before the page opened. Knock...Knock...

I'm here. I came right on over. I love this cake and the frosting is definitely the icing on the cake sweetie. I love it. Thank you for sharing this today. That fluted cake plate is SO beautiful and who wouldn't love to bake if they had pink utensils and pans. Love it sweetie.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
