“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” 

- Audrey Hepburn -

What is your favorite color?

Today I’m inspired by Audrey Hepburn and loving PINK. This color has me by the heart, which you’ll notice when you visit Pipka’s during this 2020 season in Door County. There will be lots of pink to look at from collage, candles, scarves, purses and, of course, new recipes. Yes, we may have pink cake this year…inspired by all these beautiful pink images of art and design.

I came across this pretty pink cake and hope to decorate my Almond Cake in a similar way.Soon our shop shelves will be filled with lollipops and the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted, made right here in Wisconsin. One of the lollipops will find its way to the top of my cake. You can read more about this pink cake at

My Recipe Book is full of pink including this pretty cover of a sassy baker! If you don’t have this packed full of ideas book yet, you might want to try it and let me know your favorite version (recipe) of the cake. I’ve heard a lot about the Latte Almond Cake lately! Ummmm, coffee and almond. Yum.

How do you brighten up a grey winter day? Buy flowers! Our local grocery store has beautiful flowers during the winter which is a blessing. This bouquet is a week old already but still blooming happily. Mixing the yellows into the bouquet is so colorful and fresh.

Who can resist the Pinkalicious books s? Not me. They are adorable books that any little girl would love, especially while eating pink cake and pink lollipops.

And then there’s this beautiful Dooney & Bourke Ostrich Large Barlow handbag

And, oh stop my beating heart, it has RED lining inside. Maybe for my birthday? A girl can dream.

All this pink makes me happy and cheers me up on a snowy day. It also inspires me to go into my studio and paint or collage a pink something. Inspiration will come the moment I start. I’ll share my creation with you next time….bye for now. Pink Lovin’ Pipka
