I was at work on baking, filling and frosting a birthday cake for my now turned 8-year-old. It occurred to me to photograph it a few ways.
In the first image I used soft focus on the strawberry jam being used to fill the cake. My boys think this looks like a virus under a microscope. I just enjoyed the dancing light.
Here is the cake before the candles were lit.
Here is the cake while it was being anticipated. The honoree was being a wise guy and blew out the candles with his nose.
Finally, here is my favorite shot of the cake. It was taken after everyone had their first slice.
Love the Cake so much that you can make me a cake for my Birthday
