Today I’m featuring Laura Petersen from Pink Cake Plate. Laura’s oh-so-clever and inventive mind frequently dazzles me with unique ideas like Potato Candy, Homemade Butterfingers and Boutique Soap Dispensers.
And get this: her entire kitchen is pink! I had the opportunity to chat with her husband, and he had this hilarious story about how the pink caught on like wildfire. “She has always wanted a kitchaid mixer. One year, after picking up on the fact that she really really wanted one, I went shopping and bought a pink one by accident. Since the mixer is the focal point in the kitchen, we made everything else pink. I told her that she could have everything pink in the kitchen on the condition that no pink ends up in the bedroom!”
That sounds like a fair deal to me.
