Lemon & Mint on Martha Stewart Weddings

19 Jul

This post is a bit overdue, but…

One of my dear friends is a pâtissière and runs Miso Bakes. She is extremely hardworking and even more talented. Her cake designs are some of the best that I have ever seen (and I’m obsessed with cakes). She is skilled and sweet so you can only imagine how excited I was when she emailed me telling me that one of her creations was to be in Martha Stewart Weddings! Although she’s humble and say it’s undeserved, I think she deserved every bit of it. I feel blessed that she has faith in me and my work and always feel so lucky when she asks me to shoot her cakes.

You can read her post about her Lemon & Mint cake being on Martha Stewart Weddings. Like her, I grew up watching Martha Stewart on TV (seriously – ask my mom about it). I always loved being super domestic – cooking, DIY household things, gardening, etc. so it meant so much more to me that Stella asked me to shoot her cake for Martha Stewart Weddings. You can read the article and look at the photos here in The Brides Guide.

This cake looks so fresh and summery and is both modern and retro. Be sure to follow Miso Bakes on her cake adventures and see what other amazing things she creates: Blog / Facebook

PS: I cannot wait for the day when she makes my wedding cake (and I’m not even engaged yet).


Miso Bakes – The Purple Cake

Had an opportunity to collaborate again with the talented pâtissier, Stella of Miso Bakes.
I’ve worked with her on a couple of other shoots and this time we went along with an elegant wedding theme with a gorgeous purple cake!

I love cake.

3 Nov

I love cake more than most things. That is not an exaggeration; that is a truth. I’m lucky that my job entails taking photos of things I love.

Last week I had the opportunity to work with the lovely Stella of Miso Bakes once again. She has been working on new wedding cake designs.

I have been having meetings with Stella (Miso Bakes) to plan some collaboration shoots. This is the first of several.

Stella went to UCI with me and after she attended Le Cordon Bleu and is heading on her way to be an amazing patissier! I am always so amazed not only by her skill and attention to detail but her imagination. I knew she was going to make a teapot cake for this tea party themed shoot but I never imagined it would be an amazing teapot that looks like a flower!

Evanne was our model and she did such a stunning job. I was so excited when I found her because she had the perfect look that I had in mind. She made my job so easy. 🙂

I was a little worried about lighting because when we started setting up it was really harsh still, but as it sank behind the hills it became so much more beautiful. And a BIG thanks to Stella for being such a good sport and assisting me when I needed it.
