Lemon Yogurt Mini-Cakes




Lemon Yogurt Mini-cakes

I have been hesitating for weeks. Should I or shouldn't I?

Well you see this recipe is supposed to be red and white, the color of Swiss National flag. And how could I miss that? After all these colors are so basic.

As I sat in front of my computer I just thought this actually isn't the first time I had trouble with colors. In our high-school graduation day I was the only one wearing a pair of green shoes. Imagine my embarassement when I realised that it was not black at all. I was totally convinced it was when I bought it with my sister. And of course that purple dress we are all supposed to wear for our classroom presentation, I could still hear the laughter of my classmates when they saw me arriving with my dress totally different from theirs. Whew, It's hard to be colorblind.



As I sip my hot coffee this morning, I just thought what the heck I will be sending this anyway. I am sure she will love this despite that color problem. Of course this is my entry to Zorra's Swiss National Day: Red, white, Swiss blog event.

Omigosh! I'm sorry to hear that. Color-blind women are really uncommon! I suppose your dad and some male ancestor on your mother's side (grandfather or great-grandfather) must be color-blind too.
But I don't mind, because those cakes would look good in any color :) Awesome.

Lovely lovely Dhhangit. What a bummer about the colour-blind bit...you're doing a much better job than me who can see colour. Am still thinking red & white.

Color blind??? Oh that sucks! My grandmother in law is completly colorblind..but she refuses Color help from anyone..oh my you should see the God aweful color she painted her bedroom. I honestly did even know it was a color that existed! Well hon..purple is just another shade of red!

Adam said...

Oh... colorblind? Of course. I was all set to say "Um sweetie, there's no blue in the Swiss Flag".

But the blue and berries def add another awesome layer of flavor to the cakes. Awesome job. You may have just given me an idea for a cake.... Thanks :)
