Food Colouring

We walked down to town to pick up a few groceries from our local New World supermarket and I was attracted to the bakery cake cabinet. This little cupcake is so cute with its lavender icing and googly eyes!


Although the googly eyes are great fun it was the turquoise and lavender rose-shaped cupcakes that had first gained my attention (on the left in the photo below). I loved their beautiful aqua swirls!

Taking a few steps back I realised that the cake display as a whole is really lovely.

We’re toughing it out through mid-winter here in New Zealand. These joyful, colourful cakes were just the ticket to brighten my day!

PS. As I finish this post its absolutely teeming down with rain outside

      1. Hmmm. I can’t recall the last time I bought a supermarket cake. I generally bake for myself. You’d have thought they would have standard items across stores but who knows…next time I go there I will try to remember to have a look.

  1. Generally speaking, I don’t like food that is looking back at me, but your cupcakes are adorable. I keep forgetting that your seasons are the opposite of ours–a bit of cooling rain would be welcome here as we make our way through the hottest days of the summer.
