Extreme Pink and a Frugal Cake Decorating Idea.

For the "Pink Princess's" birthday she wanted a pink cake. (In my mind I am thinking...mmm perfect for Pink Saturday!) Usually my kids like a store bought cake for their birthdays.  Just because they LOVE the frosting and it is not a normal purchase at our house.  It might also be the fact that I am NOT artistic at all!  So I was actually excited that she wanted me to make one. 
The black pieces are cookies from the cookies and cream pudding she chose to add to the mix.
She helped me mix up the cake.
Since she wanted a seriously pink cake I picked up neon food colors.
I was impressed with the colors it created. 
Now to decorate it.   I bought a package of Easter M&M's for cookies but thought I would try them out on the cake. I have never decorated with M&M's before.  Remember I am challenged in artistic area.
I was amazed! I actually love the M&M shapes.  It was easy and cheap. 
The "Pink Princess" told me it was beautiful!
An added bonus it tasted pretty good also!
I think I might be brave enough to try decorating with M&M's again.
Happy Pink Saturday!
