This past Sunday was one of the sweeter ones I’ve had in a while. Though I’ve pretty much reverted to my regular diet after the 3 week detox, I have been resisting what I crave for most, caffeine and sugar. An exception was made over the weekend when Sumayya introduced me to her addictive homemade treats: a Pakistani-inspired Victorian sponge cake and cashew semolina halva with damson puree.
Before tucking in we, of course, got to work to set up a few shots. I rummaged through my favorite part of my lovely hostess’s house – her prop room – and secured a few pieces to complete the picture. Layering is something I wanted to explore this time around and so I stacked props upon props for greater visual appeal. And tada… not too shabby huh?
