Virtual Girls Night In: Pink Food

Welcome to the round up of the Virtual Girls Night In.

Dorit from prettybaking in Israel made Reeses Nesquik Breast Cancer Awareness Cupcakes, drawing parallels between femininity and chocolate, sweet, dark and addictive.

Asha from Fork Spoon Knife gives us Pomegranate Yogurt Ice Cream, a low fat creamy treat that's packed with anti-oxidants

Arfi from HomeMadeS made Chocolate Buttons and Gluten-Free Vanilla Buttons, reliving some childhood memories.

Vicky from Sweets at Vicky's gives us Gluten Free Black & Pink Cookies, because everyone needs something to constantly pick at during a girls night in!

Yasmeen over at Health Nut made Pink Stuffed Buns, giving us something savoury, and hearty (which will help soak up all the booze I'm serving!).

Kanchan from Kitchen Gossip made Solkadi, a traditional Indian drink usually served with seafood.

Nat from MummaRats Nest made Pink Jelly Cakes, 3-in-1 Biscuits, and Pink Sleeping Teddy Biscuits proving there is no such thing as too much pink when you cook with an Almost-4-Year-Old little girl. (I hear you there Nat!)

Muneeba from An Edible Symphony gives us Girly Cupcakes, gorgeous delicate things with real strawberry puree in the mix

Cakelaw from Laws of the Kitchen made Rose Biscuits pretty, pink, delicate things perfect for Pink October

Of course, I wouldn't be much of a host if I didn't serve anything myself! We've got some Pink Strawberry Cupcakes and these awesomely dangerous Pink Grapefruit Cosmopolitan Smoothies, not the healthiest concoction but man, do they taste good. I wish you could all come around to my house for real to taste these babies, honest!

So that's it for this event. I hope you all had a bit of fun making your pink food, and I'm so pleased so many people came to my little event, and helped spread the word.
To end on a serious note, I hope you consider making a donation to the Cancer Council. The money goes towards research, and support programs for those diagnosed with cancer. See how your money helps.Thank you to all those who have already donated. If you don't feel you can afford to donate any money, then thank you regardless, for donating your time and cooking to make this event such a success, and helping raise awareness. Without your help, this would have just been me blogging on my own, and that would have been pretty sad. Make sure you check back here next October, and we'll make this an annual event!

Please consider making a donation

Well done what a wonderful wrap up!

I'm drooling over the entries. It's such a wonderful idea and I think should definately be an annual 'virtual' event.

Now to make sure my daughter doesn't see all the food else I'll be making pink food for the rest of the year.
