Food Photography, Day 15

We’re still playing with props today. And OH what fun! Napkins, tea towels, fabrics, anything that helps to tell the story of your photo. I made a plum and nut cake this afternoon, so I did the whole prop-up-the-cake thing using a tea towel. A casual toss into the corner of the worktop after removing the cake from the oven, and the result worked quite well. At least I think it did….

I was tempted to cut into this beauty, but I held my bottle as it was still too warm straight out of the oven. It does smell delicious though. The recipe is in this week’s Waitrose Weekend magazine.

Can you smell cinnamon, taste ripe, red plums? Naah, neither can I, but it’s pretty.

    The cinnamon, almost. I don’t know how hot red plums smell. Chilled, they are like white grapes, a little. This is beautiful.

      It smells like a warm breeze through an orchard.

      Thanks, c. I made another yesterday with peaches but it wasn’t nearly as good. Too much juice in the peaches, I suspect. The cakey bit at the bottom didn’t rise as high as the plum version.

        I adore puddings with real plums in them!

          I wonder if fresh raspberries would as well as plums for this recipe.

              Time for a bit of experimentation, I reckon. 🙂
