I recently made a chocolate meringue stack filled with chocolate pudding. My husband went wild for it. He suggested that I figure out how to make pink meringue hearts layered with chocolate pudding for Valentine’s Day.
I scoffed, wondering how I’d get them pink without food coloring. “Maybe try mixing in raspberries,” he suggested.

ABOUT SUZANNE: Suzanne focuses on food as centerpiece for both everyday routines and special occasions. Each recipe featured on Flour Arrangements, from simple loaves of bread to fondant decorated birthday cakes, comes with a story that blends life with cooking.
I’ve always been a baker at heart. Friends convinced me to start writing Flour Arrnagements after I made a few cakes for my kids’ birthday parties. At the time, I had just gone back to teaching at a small alternative high school in Friday Harbor, WA, but in my spare time, I began sharing stories about my attempts at baking breads, decorating cakes, and preparing other foods that time usually dictates people to buy rather than make.
Now I’m at home with my kids again after a whirlwind move to California. While my young girls — with their constant stream of projects — keep me busier than I ever was at work, I’m still trying to squeeze in time to experiment in the kitchen as much as I can.
