The orange was going to be a bottle of my favorite childhood orange soda. The hot pink was going to be a icing topped, buttery, melt in your mouth sugar cookie from my favorite local bakery.
The soda was easy enough. I picked that up when I got groceries earlier in the week. The cookie, in my true procrastinating style, I put off getting until today, Friday. Well guess what my favorite local bakery didn't have this morning when I walked through the door? Yep, my hot pink iced, melt in your mouth cookie.
Crap! So what was I suppose to do now? I was not going to let go of my vision for this color combination. So I tried one other local bakery, no hot pink cookies. At this point I was getting desperate, so I even tried the grocery store bakery.
As I was staring at the only hot pink thing in the grocery store bakery case, some mini cupcakes with hot pink frosting and sprinkles, I had a brilliant idea. I would make my own hot pink frosted sugar cookies.
So I bought some ready for the oven sugar cookies, white frosting and neon pink food coloring.
And I made my own hot pink frosting...
Maybe I didn't find the "perfect" cookie for this color combination, but thanks to photography which forces me to be creative and blogging that allows me to tell the story, I may have come up with something even better than I had originally planned.
