~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My husband and his best friend are Guinness beer crazy, they adore the stuff! So when I heard about our best man’s surprise party, I volunteered to make the cake. It took me about half a second to figure out what I was going to do: Guinness cake with cream cheese frosting, drizzled with caramel. Oh man, just thinking about it again makes me salivate. I couldn’t attend the party since I had no sitter, however I was told that it was a big hit! It not only flatters my ego but makes me feel happy that I could make it up to him for not attending.

Recipe here: [link]

Also, I don't have a fancy camera but I try to make due. I thought =xOronar's bokeh stock would be nice in the background. I like it :)


AND I'M ALWAYS TORN between submitting my food pictures to Still Life or Artisan Crafts. It's both really...

I really don't like Guinness but I'd have to give these a go. They look delicious! I have the same problem with Still Life and Artisan Crafts too so I usually pick Artisan Crafts. ~claremansons way of doing it sounds good though.

I think it is a lovely mark of how good your photography is that you feel torn between which gallery to submit it to. You take such lovely photographs.

Hardly! Your photography far surpasses my own. I would never dream of submitting anything of mine to still life. Whereas yours would look right at home in either gallery. :la:

:heart: that was quick! your photography is getting amazing i must say! I will have to try this recipe out once my husband is feeling better.
As for being torn being still life and artisan crafts, i used to be like that but now i decide on the standard of photo, if the photo is semi ok but i am not 100% happy with it i put it in artisan where the main focus is going to be on the food. If i like the photo i choose still life where both the photography and food get attention.

Oh, I took this picture on Friday morning. I did not want to publish it before his surprise party.

I guess that's a good way to decide which category to use. But it is hard for me to have an objective eye on my own photography. Sometimes I feel the picture is amazing, but it get little attention and sometimes I rushed through something and that gets way more attention instead.

I love the composition and the bokeh. Nice shot. My husband loves Guiness too (I hate it though), but the combination in cupcakes sounds interesting, I definitely need to try them:-)
