I Guess You Gotta Play the Game
Spying the pictures from last year, I realized that it isn't enough to simply whip up a great recipe. Apparently you've got to become a food stylist too and accessorize your cake. So here goes my attempt at "doing it up."
I spent several hours on Friday shopping for "staging" my cakes. I'm going for classy sophistication in this one, with some romance thrown in for good measure since it's for Valentine's Day. I made a second cake so I could include a cut piece that shows that this blackberry cake is indeed purple, thus the purple roses.
If this doesn't get their attention, I don't know what will.
I'd rather stick with whippin' up new recipes than this stuff.
