Whether you're hosting a meal, organizing a bake sale or just volunteering and contributing to a fundraiser for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, these pink treats are the perfect addition to the menu.
Pretty-in-Pink Strawberry Cake Recipe Recipes, like many women, look great when they're dressed up in pink, so we're honoring National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with dishes that are not only perfectly pink but also pretty darn tasty. Chopped strawberries add a soft pink hue (an fresh fruit flavor!) to the cake, while the buttercream gets its flavor from sliced berries.
This incredible cheesecake says, “special occasion” like no other. With a delightedly salty-sweet, crunchy pretzel crust (which balances its tangy filling perfectly) holding layers of pink lemonade curd and pink lemonade cheesecake, all of which is topped off with a striking pile of meringue, this dessert is nothing short of fabulous.
Love it, hate it, or over it, nobody can deny that the color, ubiquitously deemed millennial pink across the Internet, is quite eye-catching and completely appropriate for springtime. And in honor of what seems to be the shade of the moment, we created this all-pink-everything pie.

Strawberry-Ginger Lemonade Floats Recipe Though the ginger is optional, it gives these refreshing floats their signature zing. If you can't find sparkling lemonade, substitute fizzy lemon-lime soda or ginger ale.
