A whole week of cupcakes… don’t mind if I do! These are my Lavender Cupcake, topped with handpicked Lavender from the Hitching Lavender fields. I mixed the icing colour myself by using pink and blue (to match my hair colour) into a basic cream cheese icing recipe.
What a great day to celebrate! Indulge!
Make the most of figs whilst they are beautifully juicy and in season. There are lots of lovely recipes on the interest to inspire you, I’ve made a tasty dish of figs halved and cooked for 10 mins in the oven and served warm with Camembert cheese, honey, fresh thyme and walnuts. Y.U.M!
Love this shot of my craft and sewing props, happy Non Food Friday!
September is sourdough month a campaign organised by the Real Bread Campaign with the aim to encourage more people to bake or buy sourdough. Give it a try… dunked in oil and vinegar or simply with butter.
Lagom is a Swedish concept meaning ‘just the right amount’ and is the theme of a craft book that I am currently shooting for Search Press. Whilst shooting I snapped this beautiful incidental shot and I thought it was perfect for this week’s Non Food Friday post.
Yesterday was National Sponge Cake day (in US) and rather fittingly I had to bake this mini Bundt cake for a prop for one of my shots for the book I’m currently working on, cute huh?!
Just realised I haven’t posted in over a week…sorry! Last week was crazy busy, as is this week.
So one of my jobs last week was shooting the new Chiquito’s menu. We shot it in one of their restaurants, whilst diners sat around us having their breakfast, lunch and dinners! Chef cooked it fresh as it would be served in the restaurant and David the food stylist gave each dish a few tweaks here and there just to make sure it looked perfect yet remaining authentic. Lovely job, wonder colours and textures.
Here’s a couple of their dishes – Tacos and Enchiladas, and a phone snap of the restaurant.
Non Food Friday – It’s been a very exciting week for me, as this week the first book I’ve had the privilege to shoot, published! I shot it last September so it’s been a long wait for it to become available to purchase but the wait is finally over.
These are a couple of my favourite shots from the book, I love them the most because I had just as much fun styling them as well as shooting them.
If you’d like a copy the link to purchase is on my ‘Publications’ page, just click the image 😀
It’s gone all cold and rainy here, where has summer gone?! There’s only one thing to do to make a grey day like today cheerful… have some bright green, cosy, warm pea soup 😀
