Does this cupcake remind you of Molly Ringwald?
I ate it today in my own little John Hughes memorial. RIP.
Of all his movies, Pretty in Pink is my favorite. I watched it so many times in my family's living room that I think my dad wanted to beat the daylights out of every member of The Psychedelic Furs.
I love that Molly Ringwald's character came from the wrong side of the tracks with her beat-up Karmann Ghia (my dream car to date) and her DIY prom dress. But I most wanted to be Annie Potts' character Iona, the wacky record store owner who seemed wiser and older (She was probably in her 30s...ancient hag.) I love when she finishes stapling LPs to the ceiling and says:
"Applause, applause, applause."
Then of course there's the fabulous scene below. In his initial screenplay, John Hughes had Andie get with Duckie, but Hollywood made him change it sparking debate about social classes. Hughes was right. Duckie was way cooler than that rich guy any day.
Cupcake called "The Princess" from Gigi's with strawberry cake and cream cheese icing.
