In hopes that people will order treats from me to raise money for Breast Cancer Research, I bake things and post pictures so that said people can see that I can decorate a decent cookie and fumble my way through cake pops and cupcakes.
…and hopefully the lack of cake photos will encourage them to not order a cake.
I am constantly trying to take a decent picture of my creations so they look, well, appealing.
Enter ‘beige’ food.
Argh – beige! Breads, pastas, shortbread, snickerdoodles…all. beige. We have a social magazine in our area where I contribute a recipe a month and let me tell ya, I seem to make aLOT of colorful food wrapped up in beige – quesadillas, egg rolls, empenadas. AHHH!!
One of my most successful desserts is a mini cream puff – it’s a mouth full of yum! But….
Eh. It’s ok. Or how about these scrumptious Apple Hand Pies….
More beige but darker. So this weekend I made Carrot Banana bread and really worked on staging and lighting….
A little better. Baby steps, right? Stay tuned for more beige! Next up…Healthified Rice Krispie Treats 🙂
