|Hardywood Blackberry Cupcakes with Lemon Butter Cream, filled with Agriberry Blackberry Jam|
Over the past few weeks, I have been perfecting my beer cupcake recipes and in the process have completely spoiled all of my coworkers. Now, if I show up to work without my cupcake carrier, people are disappointed and kind of confrontational about it. Well, today these moochers hit the jackpot because I had 4 dozen cupcakes to be eaten after my first cupcake photo shoot.
You read that right, a photo shoot for cupcakes. It kind of felt like when people have photo shoots with their pets and dress them up in different outfits and use a squeaky toy to make them look at the camera, only without the squeaky toy. I did at one point say to the photographer, “Doesn’t she look pretty?” Which I am pretty sure is the first sign of a serious sickness. Luckily, that photographer is also a friend and didn’t even acknowledge my insanity.
Patrick Hannan, part fireman, part traveler, part photographer and part food stylist, took some amazing shots of my beer cupcakes and accepted payment in the form of cupcakes and beer. I think we both made out pretty well.
I will be sharing all the photos from the shoot over the next couple of weeks both here and on the new Thirsty Richmond Facebook page. Please, click over and follow me there.
