A very pink cake

{a very pink cake}

I made this cake in early December, but with all the stocking stuffers and baked goods to post about, it never made an appearance here. It was a surprise for my friend Bethany's birthday, and my goal was to make it very pink—inside and out.

When a friend, wondering why I was making The World's Pinkest Cake, asked if Bethany wears a lot of pink, my response was, "No, but she lives it." So, for a girl with lives pinkly, I made this cake with a few changes: I used pureed strawberries between the layers and added some red food coloring to make the frosting pretty and pink.

The cake was definitely hit with the birthday girl, and an even bigger hit when it was brought out for an encore performance at the bar after dinner.
