Pink is a color of individuality and romance.  It can be dramatic, feminine or it can dance in a floral print. You can be tickled pink, or in the pink!  You can go to the Rose City (Marrakesh) or wear a Pink Ribbon in honor of breast cancer research.  You can wear Bubblegum Pink or Shocking Pink!  Pink is everywhere this season!

This post is in honor of Valentine's Day and the hope of Spring being just around the corner!  Follow me on Instagram at @Smithsuzanne to see more pink!

Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cold cream cheese

3/4 cup room temperature butter

1/2 cup raspberry jam

1 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch of salt

2 - 3 drops red food coloring

3 cups confectioners sugar

In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter and jam together until smooth.  Add the vanilla, salt and food coloring.  Mix until an even colored pink is reached.

Turn the mixer on low and add the confectioners sugar a little at a time to avoid a sugar cloud.  Turn the mixer up and mix until frosting is smooth.  Use to frost cake or cupcakes of your choice.

I hope everyone has a very lovely Valentine's Day!  Let me know what you think!  Leave your comments in the box below!
