My Saturdays are usually spent driving back and forth between the bakery and wedding reception venues . This week our only wedding cake was a mid-week delivery, Thursday, 10-11-12. One of the Saturday decorators requested a day off so I covered her shift. My manager called me on Friday and said she needed me to start at 4 rather than the usual 5AM start time because there were almost 50 cakes on order and a lot of them needed to be done early. Then she added “please refrain from taking pictures” I reluctantly agreed, thinking to myself, I won’t take time to photograph cakes if the other girls don’t take time to smoke their cigarettes. I decided it was best to keep that comment to myself.
I did get a few photos, some cakes had not yet been picked up when we finished decorating all the orders.
Here’s Thursday’s wedding cake.Our long Indian Summer came to an end friday night. I have been taking pictures in the alley behind the shop so I could use natural light but since it was raining I had to take Saturday’s pictures under fluorescent lights. The glare is especially bad on ganache-covered cakes.
Visit tomorrow and I’ll show you some of the things I’ve found at thrift stores.
