Cake Photography Continued

Hi everyone!

I thought I’d take the time to give a shoutout to Louise from Learn Cake Decorating Online  for her handy video on how to photograph your cake with a white background.

In my last photography blog post Through The Lens, I mentioned how some cake decorators photograph their cakes with this white background that makes the cakes have such an ethereal quality to them?

Aside from the fact that the cake looks bloody amazing, the background works so well with this cake!

Rachel from Flower and Fondant – amazing photography, but the cake is so exquisite as well!

Emma from Emma-Lee Cake Design and another beauty of hers – with a white background too

Love it or hate it, there is a place for it in cake photography. Today, Louise posted a blog post with a video explaining how to achieve this shot – and you don’t need a fancy set up to achieve a blowout of the background. And she showcases a beautiful Jemima Puddleduck that will be featured in next month’s tutorial of Learn Cake Decorating Online! Can’t wait for that.


I recently did a similar style of photography on a cake, and I had slightly different settings to what was in the video but it looked beautiful too!


I hope mine is just as pretty! Loving the light that goes through the flowers to give it an almost translucent effect.

Happy photographing your cakes!
