For some of you this little tip may seem too obvious, but I was amazed at how long it took me to realize it. Do you ever get a cake order and there's one part of the cake that makes it less marketable to other customers? Not that there's anything wrong with it, and not that I expect people to only order cakes I have done before. Take the cake above. On the left was the finished wedding cake - the couple wanted a splash of their colors (hot pink and green) and a sign language topper. The cake turned out beautifully and I was very proud of it.
As I was working on it however, at some point I had it all decorated except for the extra color and the topper. So I pulled out the camera and snapped a few pictures of it in that pre-finished state. If you're still trying to build your portfolio, this is a good way to get 2 pictures for the price of one!
So don't hesitate taking a photo for you before you finish making it for them!
For the record, this whimsical wedding cake went to Chattanooga's Creative Discovery Museum.
