Cartoons and plates
My great friend Mitch in New York sent me this the other day, and I had to share….food blogging is now being satirised in the Wall Street Journal. Very impressive.
So after our blogger meet up, I popped into Thai Kee IGA (check out Helen’s post from a while back with her great pics) in the Market City complex to go on a hunt for interesting plates. Why? Well, my friend Phil sent me some pics of the most gloriously decorated cupcakes I’ve ever seen! These cupcakes were made by Lolo at VeganYumYum, whose blog I was fascinated and inspired by. She wrote a post about photographing food, and mentioned the importance of the right dishes, and suggested buying just one or two plates/dishes that you like for your photographs, instead of whole sets, so you end up with a range of interesting backgrounds, but suggests the majority be white, as obviously white always looks so good. So this is what I got, all for under $50! I love Chinatown!
I know, they’re patterned and coloured, but they were so pretty!
