Today's post is compliments of Jen, celebrity judge for Highlowaha's Super Bowl Snack Throwdown. Weeks ago, Jen challenged her blog readers to submit a pink recipe in the Power for Pink Challenge, by Saturday, October 31, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I'm no baker, and even less of a chef, but I recognize fun when I see it and Jen's challenge immediately sounded up my alley. A community of readers using their creativity to be socially conscious.... If blogs could shine, it would be for reasons such as that!
I'd like to say I toiled for weeks over which recipe to use, but my decision happened within minutes. It went something like this...
Claudia: "Diana (trusted colleague and Martha Stewart's greatest rival), what recipe could I make that is pink?"Diana: "Oh, I don't know. What about turning Bakerella's infamous cake balls into breasts?"Claudia: "Perfect. Done. Diana, whose Bakerella and do you have her cake ball recipe?"
If I had the crafting expertise of Diana the boobquet would be as beautiful as it is delicious. But, since I am no expert baker, I should at least have the crude wit of someone like Mr. Struble, owner of Struble Suds. That way, what my boobquet lacked in aesthetics, it could make up for in humor.
Alas, I am neither artisan nor comedian.
How about you?
Tell me what pink recipe you might have cooked up or... give me the best zinger you've got about my creation.
Signing of until tomorrow...
