If there's one thing in this world that I love and cannot resist (aside from the obvious - kids, family, quality time, ect.) it's sweets. Doesn't matter what form it's in, I'd be satisfied with a cube of sugar or licking maple syrup off of a spoon. I have a dear friend who is a baker and a small business owner here in the local area. Could we be more of a match made in heaven? She shared some photos of her most recent Valentine's Day cake pops and boy are they cute. Well, it just so happens that I'm working on improving my product photography skills as there is a growing demand from business owners to showcase their work social media platforms. So I asked my friend, Trish, to bring over some of her baked goodies and promised not to sample. I'm really excited about how the photos turned out and the creative flexibility she granted me to work with her treats.
So when it was all said and done, I had a two year old pointing at the delicious mound of frosted sugary bites saying mmmm....So long story short, Aiden is the real winner in this situation. He would like all the mommies and daddies and spoil-happy grandparents to know that a cake pop from Trish's Sweet Treats is what your little one really wants.
P.S. he never gets sweets so this was a huge deal for him so he was happy to comply with getting in front of the camera as I snapped away!
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I broke my new diet by trying a small sample bite. But have to admit it so I can share that these are so so so delicious. They're rich and full of flavor. They're far from dry and are enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. Plus I love that they're near next to mess free!
I also had fun with a little graphic design work for this small business and awesome friend. Next to photography and throwing over the top birthday parties, I enjoy marketing and graphic design work. It makes me feel like those marketing classes back in collage weren't for nothing. So, look what I made!
