Yesterday, our local newspaper, the Southeast Missourian, published a feature article on local cake artists. The primary interview was with one of our bakers, Emily Blattel, and included photos of cakes in-progress!
Although we knew the article would appear in Sunday’s edition, we didn’t know it would be the above-the-fold teaser!
The photos were taken several weeks back and required extensive kitchen prep! It can be pretty nerve-wracking to know that your baking techniques and prep area will be plastered on news stands in several counties! The main photographer, Laura Simon, was a blast to work with and we spent more than two hours taking pictures as I baked, iced and decorated a smash cake (for a Coco Captures shoot) and cupcakes – start to finish!
She even created a stop-action video of the entire process:
Overall, it was extremely fun and a great chance to share about cake in general and The Cake Mom & Co. in particular! I just wish the photographers would have been around for some of our most recent super-impressive cakes!
