It’s a special day today so here’s a special way to celebrate. Pink is the color of love and what better way can it be to express love in a sweetest form than to make a pink dessert. The color pink reminds me of a poem by Karlen ….
Pink is love, Pink is life, Feelings of trust, Day and night.
Pink will be there through the toughest of times, when you’re all alone, and afraid to cry.
No matter what has happened, pink helps mend broken hearts, when they’re in two pieces and were torn apart.
Pink is the color of a child’s blushed face, its is a simple color that cannot be replaced.
Pink can be used to say ‘I love you’which is an odd thing to say unless you really do.
Pink is simply a really close friend, with you through everything until the very end.
There with you through the ups and downs even there when life whirls you around.
When you need some help and are afraid to ask, pink supplies you with answers that will last.
You may not realize this but it is definitely true, pink is not just a color for me, but a color for you !!!
So here’s on the special day…for that special someone i present our very Indian Desi Cottage Cheese Sweet Gulabi (rose) Kalakand.

The garnishing gives it a royal and festive look. So let us celebrate the festival of love and surprise your loved ones with Gulabi Rose Kalakand.
