When I started this blog, I didn’t own a camera and wasn’t trying to win a baking contest. I desperately needed a creative outlet. Luckily I was fortunate to not only have friends with mad photography skills, but friends who were more than willing to help a sister out with my vintage sugary shenanigans.
I’ve since bought a camera and now taking most of my own pics. And I still DON’T WANNA BAKE YOUR WEDDING CAKE. Exclamation point times affinity.
Last spring I entered a pic of this shortcake in the foodie photography contest hosted by our Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA). I didn’t think I had a shot in hell. To everyone out there that took time out and voted for me; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your continued support and love are what keep me going on this crazy journey. And trust me, when I beeline it to Target at O’dark thirty on a Sunday morning, because the Andy Warhol inspired cans of Campbell’s soup have just hit the shelves, AND give up a Labor Day to bake, frost, and re-shoot this chocolate cake for the tenth time? Coo Coo Chaos folks.
