pink ribbon day

Today at work, staff are having an afternoon tea to raise money for breast cancer. I planned to make appropriately shaped cupcakes. But since most of my recipes result in cakes that are flat topped rather than "hilly", I've made meringues instead. The raw mixture was a deep flesh pink, but sadly it faded with cooking to a dull beige. I didn't know whether the sweets for the tops would melt in the oven, so I tried one and it did. The rest I've poked in after baking so they're a bit cracked. Oh well, hopefully they look authentic enough to give the girls a laugh...
