Layers. Layers of cake. Seemed an easy theme to respond to – and I’m sure the layers of cake will be posted by many other bloggers.
The only problem with this week’s challenge is knowing when to stop adding photos of layers.
And then there’s the question of whether or not to have the photos “peopled” or “unpeopled”.
This took FIVE hours to make. Seriously. It has lived in my freezer for a time. Not a cake but created in a bundt pan with many layers of jello, some layers mixed with yogurt to get the different tint. When I taught visual arts I always had to remind the students the how to make a tint by adding white. No worries,this item it was not ingested.
Charlotte and Joel’s Valentine wedding cake with vintage cake topper from her grandparents who were married on Valentine’s Day, too.
The layer cake I baked for a photo shoot for a specific anniversary event at PERSAD- Steve took it to the office and everyone enjoyed it. There were two pounds of butter in it between the cake and the frosting.
Alexis and Jarrett’s first slice is missing in the one layer!
Vicky and Justin’s September cake. I posted this for the weekly challenge of purple, too.
Bobbi Jo and Tim’s Destiny Hill Farm wedding and their layered cake!
Laura and James’ cake November 12, 2011. Layers baked and decorated by Cake Dot. A pair of Etsy lovebirds on top.
Sweet challenge this week. Piece of cake.
What I discovered is I shoot a lot of red.
I blurred my eyes to spot purple in the archives.
Yes, I made the rainbow jello to photograph. It took 5 hours. I got the recipe from my daughter Laura who found it on the web here
The one pictured is not spiked and no one ate it either. It is still in my freezer to slice and photograph with light coming through the jello like stained glass.
Purple views, white balance setting askew but it works for the challenge.
A compendium of purple.
and the cake is by Aubrey’s Bakery in Steubenville Ohio for Justin and Vicky’s wedding
First cousins once removed on her mother’s side. That is such a strange sounding label! She’s also my youngest grandchild. Fun to be part of a family wedding. Congratulations to Jaclyn and Michael. It was a happy night.
