Who knew 1 little cupcake could be so much fun!
Meet my little cupcake, isn't he cute? He may not be perfectly dressed or glamorously presented but he was mine and I loved him. So what's the story?
Well we met last Saturday at Blog Camp Birmingham, which was run by the lovely people from Tots100. Upon entering a room to take part in a Food Photography class, there he was. Sat in the middle of the table looking cold and bare, just begging me to rescue him.
When we first met, he didn't quite look like that. He was bare and dull, lifeless and unloved. It wasn't for long though as I took him up onto my napkin and smothered him in love. Well vanilla frosting anyway. I wanted to add character so I gave him some funky swirls, I wanted to give him a unique existence, so I sprinkled him with chocolate drops. He was looking amazing in now time, well to me anyway. I'm not sure others would agree.
Once he was dressed and looking good, we set off to explore the room. Together we visited lots of little work stations, set up to unleash of creative side. Lets see what we did:
We went on a fun filled adventure of light, shapes, colours and shadows. Props, backgrounds and angles too. Who knew that 1 little cupcake could be so much fun!
After an amazing hour sadly our journey had to come to an end. The class was over and it was time to move on. Sadly he didn't make it to my next class, well he did sort of but not in the way he would have liked. By the time I had reached my next class he had crumbled and broken and been washed down into my stomach with a cup of hot chocolate.
All good things must come to an end at some point or so they say. My cupcake and I had a wonderful time and learnt so much about each other. Although he is no longer with us, I will always have these amazing photographs to remember him by. His time on this earth was not wasted, in fact it was time very well spent as without him I would never have been able to learn so much about taking good food pictures. So for that reason I end my post today by saying 'Thank You' to my beloved cupcakes, you will be missed.
