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!

Really cute. I have seen those pans, but never seen a cake made in them.

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

This sounds great!

My mom takes a white cake mix, adds a can of strawberry pie filling, 2 eggs, and bakes as directed.  Frost with strawberry frosting.

Make a box of strawberry cake mix!  You can add red food coloring to vanilla frosting if you want it pink

You could make a straberry cake with strawberry frosting and decorate it.

That's exactly what I was thinking. My mom makes a wonderful strawberry cake, if you would like I will see if I can get the recipe!

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