Do you make cakes? Do you pour your heart and soul into each one of them because it’s your love… your art? Would it kindo’ sorto’ be cool if they got “noticed”?
Alright, now I’m not looking to overwhelm you here. I just need you to know something if you’ve answered “YES!” to that last question up there. Here is it…
One of the VERY most important things you can do for yourself and your business is to learn how to photograph your work!
I can not TELL you how many times I have come across an AMAZING cake online… that will just be ignored by most of the world because of how it was photographed.
THAT, is a travesty!
What do I mean? Let me give you an example using my own work.
Look at the difference in these two pictures…
Which one do you want to look at? If you had to pick, which one would be more likely to ’cause you to stop scrolling through your news feed for a second to take a good look?
Listen, I’ve BEEN on the left there… I get it.
You’ve got your hands full just trying to make these cakes whilst still living some sort of actual life at the same time. Trying to figure out photography too is enough to put you right over the edge.
I know. But it’s really, REALLY important… and it DOESN’T have to be hard!!
This ebook, Tasty Food Photography, will help you to easily take your pictures from the one on the left… the the one on the RIGHT!
Whether you’re using a point and shoot, DSLR or EVEN your iPhone camera… this book is a MUST! It taught me how to use the settings on my camera and work with natural lighting to take QUALITY pictures of my work… and I can not sing it’s praises loud enough! It breaks everything down for you so that the info is not overwhelming, but so helpful in teaching you how to capture your work in an image that may just get people to notice it!
Tasty Food Photography by Lindsay, the founder of the Pinch of Yum blog has helped me transform my photography… and now, I’ve got to tell you, photographing my work is one of my most favorite parts of each project! AND, it’s not just changed the way I take pictures of my work, it’s changed the way I take pictures of everything! Capturing special moments with friends and my family are so much more fun for me now, and quite frankly, I’m becoming obsessed!
The book is $29, and I am TELLING YOU… it will be the best investment you will make, thus far!
I am going to be completely honest with you, after reading this book, I immediately went to sign up for this book’s affiliate program. I am just SO convinced that you need to read this book, and that it will help you, that I’m willing to stake my name on it!
I just wish I had bought this book BEFORE I photographed my very first cake! (Would’ve maybe helped the crows feet I’ve got going in the corners of my eyes from every time I’ve cringed, looking at it. Uggghhhhlllllll. ) Xx

Ok, a few more notes you might be interested in…
Here is a link to the exact camera model that I own. I bought mine, used, for about the same price.
It is my Precious…. *gollum*.
And here are a few other affiliate links to some items you should think about. The foam core board is essential to my photography setup. I just set the boards perpendicular to each other (floor and backdrop) next to a bright window, and it makes for a PERFECT white backdrop for my projects.
And then, a few backdrops give you the option of changing things up a bit. I own *AHEM* a little more than I few, I admit. I’m kinda sorta addicted. But then, you guys already know my personality issues, don’tcha. 😉
Sugar High Inc. photograpy backdrops are my very FAVORITE. Check ’em out, here…
