Cute Coffeecake

"Never underestimate the power of cute." - Anne Reeves

If you are going to take the time to make a coffeecake, shouldn't it look this good?  I turned a box mix of coffeecake into this, simply by baking the batter in a pretty pan.  My only improvement was adding dried cherries and pecan halves to the streusel layer.  The pan is a French silicone "Sunflower" mold by Flexipan.
By drizzling on a simple powered sugar/hot water glaze (a tablespoon of hot water to a cup of powdered sugar), my quick and easy coffeecake starts to look even more professional.  A hot pink glass cake stand doesn't hurt either.  Never underestimate the power of cute.
