Not long ago we made Anna's Silent Mandarine Cake but as cupcakes and it made me think what a great colour ORANGE is. It's a good food colour.This little pyrex beauty came home from Ron and Brian's just begging for good honest Nanna food in it's pot belly. Orange you glad you came home with us, Polly Pyrex?
