A day's break from shed production as the gusts and freak snow showers splutter the garden site. Leftover off-cuts of re-worked timber, scattered, creating the mess in full view of an irritating neighbour. The temporarily 'tarped' roof blowing in the wind ready for take off at anytime. I think it can be left for another day or three. So instead its cakes, chocolates and the occasional photography enquiries. Probably in that order too but not saying any should have a priority. I have been offered wedding cake only twice in my photography career and stolen a piece only once I think. After the newly married couple I am usually the next person to spot the cake in all its glory. There have been a couple of episodes of loosely-fixed shaky laminate flooring in outside marquees where the tiered creation has become an uncanny resemblance to a certain tower in Pisa. One false step of a photographer with a keen eye for cake detail could have resulted in an 'earthquaked' affected sweetened rubble. A safe route or 'cop out' is the muffin/bun alternative. Gorgeously individual with unique toppings, but this in itself creates a whole host of issues. Guests are suddenly being offered a choice, which one is to their liking? can they take more than one? Will there be bunfights? Will there be enough to go round after the greedy fat kid has eaten four? And most importantly how on earth do the wedding pair cut the cake for the obligatory picture? There are thankfully solutions to that last point with a bit of will and imagination (or copying other photographer's pictures but don't tell anyone that..) As I am usually and possibly rightly not offered a slice or bite from the display I cannot offer any guidance or experience on taste. I only know by judging what's left on people's plates or not after the boogie on the dancefloor has started and has pulled the hoards away from the dining tables. By this my only advice would be for presentation is the priority for the camera memory, even if looks can be deceptive.
