Pink Recipes

Hiya everyone

We are having a 'wear it pink' charity day at my little boys school to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

I am going to make the raspberry & white chocolate muffins that I have seen mentioned on this forum a few times (well will do a trial run tomorrow as I am assuming they will come out a pinky colour lol)

Does anyone have any other pink recipes at all ? or anything using pinky coloured things that would be suitable to sell at an infants school.

While I am here, I have seen a recipe for Strawberry Muffins and they use strawberry conserve .. am i right or wrong in assuming that strawberry conserve is just jam ?

Many thanks for any help you can give

    Hi there

    What about gingerbread people - you could pipe pink bows on.. or use a bit of icing to stick pink dolly mixtures on!

    Beetroot muffins ! They're good actually-bit like carrot muffins. You add grated cooked beetroot to the muffin mixture. It turns a fab pink colour which isn't quite as impressive once cooked, but is pink nontheless. Healthy too.

    Snap thriftlady!!!

    Or there are always red velvet muffins but you could use pink food colouring instead and even add food colouring to the frosting.

    I made plain fairy cakes for the school alien day last week and added a bit if green food colouring and they turned out really good - (thought they might go browny green when baked but took them out just in time!) I am sure this would work for pink ones too.

    Thank you all for the brill suggestions.

    re the coconut ice, I have the link open now and that looks almost too easy to do (I can muck up the easiest of recipe's lol :o). Mind you, I could always get David (my little one) to do it with me and keep me on the right track :p lol

    The velvet cakes look gorgeous (and I know I am a pain in the !!!) but does anyone know how to convert cups to grams or oz ? I have clicked the convert button on there and it converts to ml but I dont have any ml measuring doodahs (my jug is too big for the measurements on there)

    Thanks again

    Thanks torianut, I did think about that, and maybe putting some strawberry chocolate on top (I was discussing it with a friend and I said I could get some pink smarties or pink jelly tots and put one on top but we decided it was a bit risque for an infants school lol)

    ooooo I just had a thought .. what are those domed spongey things that are covered in jam and coconut .. I could do a version of those couldnt I (except they would have to be cake shaped cos I dont know how to get them that funny shape lolol)
