I had a cupcake photo shoot last yesterday. It was kind of awesome. The cupcakes that I got from the Vanilla Bake Shop in Santa Monica were so delicious, I couldn’t help myself. This is when the “foodie” in me can’t help myself. I thought you all may enjoy the pictures and delicious cupcakes too!
I got three different flavors: Mint Chocolate, Mocha Chocolate, Mom’s Birthday Cake
Mint Chocolate: Dark Chocolate Cake, Creamy White Mint Frosting, Semi Sweet Callebaut Chocolate Chips
Mocha Chocolate: Dark Chocolate Cake, Creamy Mocha Frosting, Chocolate Covered Coffee Bean
Mom’s Birthday Cake: All American Yellow Cake, Milk Chocolate Frosting (+ a colored candy flower on top)
I have to tell you I think my favorite was the Mocha Chocolate. I really wanted one of the cupcakes with a “vanilla bean cake” as I’m generally not a huge fan of chocolate cake, but I did really like the chocolate cake in these. I ate the Mocha one when I brought them home and stuck the other two in the fridge because I didn’t want the frosting to get too melty. I think before I ate them later I needed to take them out of the fridge for a bit to “thaw” back out a bit. But they were all really delicious and I was left with a way too full sugar stomach ache. Oops…
And I’m playing around with different collage-making and photo editing apps on my phone so here’s just some fun that I had playing around last night. 🙂
