Of Chocolate and Pink

I've never had a request for chocolate frosting on a cake for a little girl's birthday party, and I have a theory about this.

People who order all chocolate are the ones who want a cake that tastes amazing, and aren't so concerned about feminine touches or looking "pretty".  But many people's idea of a "pretty" cake is one frosted in soft, creamy pastels (and I'm not going to lie, I prefer decorating pretty cakes over cars and trucks in primary colors).

Come to think of it, vanilla frosting versus chocolate is the blond versus brunette debate of the cake world.  Even cake has its politics.

As a brunette, I've never believed that blondes have more fun, and as a cake decorator, I think that a chocolate frosted cake can be just as pretty as a beautiful white cake, so I decorated these little 6-inch cakes with sweet and simple pink fondant accents.

And I'll tell you something else - I'd much rather eat the chocolate frosting.
