Hello! First, I just love your blog, it's one of my favorites! :) Second, I was wondering if your readers would be willing to help me out. We are throwing a bridal shower for my good friend in July, and the color theme will be purple and black. Does anyone have any cute/creative ideas for foods with purple in them? (I think cupcakes with purple frosting - blackberry buttercream maybe? - will be on the agenda, but I'm at a loss otherwise.)
Cute! Love the cupcake idea. Off hand, maybe some Purple Cow Frozen Yogurt? I’d also suggest looking into working with chocolate. When you use the microwave to melt the chocolate, it can be super easy. Just remember to do it in short bursts (no more than 30 seconds) at 50% power so that you don’t burn it! Maybe some chocolate covered pretzels, using both purple candy melts and dark chocolate? I find my candy/chocolate melts at the Bulk Barn, but I’m sure a lot of bulk/baking supply stores have them. If I was the bride and you made those, I would love you forever.
If anyone else can give some ideas, I’ll post them. Put them in the ask box.
