Crazy 8

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.
