My daughters birthday is coming up and she wants a pink cake. I'm not the best baker but i thought I'd try. Any tips or recipes for something simple, yummy and cute? Store bought products that will make this easier? Thanks!

Strawberries mixed in with a white cake batter will make pink. Sorry I don't have a recipe.

 I made a cake one year for my niece. I really thought it was super cute. I'll try and post a pic. You can get the icing at the store..the ones that come in a tube. It kind of looks like the cheez whiz tubes...only thing is they don't go far. So you gotta get more than one. But anyways, I used a pan I got from Hobby Lobby. It's a giant cupcake lol. Then just put on the different icings. It was really cute, I thought:).

Here it is! Sorry it's not real clear. This was right after we iced it. Kinda messy.

Does she like strawberries? Maybe you can puree them and add to the batter.
