Beverly Hills Cup

Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bake

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Our friend Sandy is the patron saint of bakers. She must have the busiest baking trays in the whole of Melbourne, because when she isn't busy producing goodies for her own family, she delights in turning them out for others.

But she also believes that presentation is as important as the concept itself. So when she arrived at our door with these magnificent cup cakes, she also produced an entire cup cake stand as well, to display them in the rightful manner.

Yes, you CAN have your cake and eat it too - after you've photographed it, of course.

They look like they're in those new silicone cupcake holders. Very nicely displayed and photographed.

I understand birthday wishes are in order. Happy day and many more!

I bet in your house it's the same as in mine: No one dares to touch the food, until you have captured it with your camera. ;-)

If this was a birthday celebration, a very happy birthday to the birthday kid!

(My word verification, "comatest" - is it only me or are other people also getting more and more words that "make sense"?)
