Food Styling Shots that’ll Have you Baking ASAP!
I made a New Year’s resolution in January that 2014 would be the year I conquered the kitchen. As with most resolutions, it never quite happened, though in my defence I did bake a killer apple crumble with the help of my partner Gavin a little while ago (see the recipe here) and we did order Hello Fresh for a few months over winter, which did expand my culinary skills somewhat.
I stumbled across the website Raspberri Cupcakes last last week and kinda lost my mind. As with many sites on the net, I discovered it completely by accident but was so delighted with what I found in its pages that I really had to share it with you.
Packed full of food styling shots – and recipes – that had me experiencing all sorts of joy and rapture, this is a blog that’s inspired me to get baking again. Look out Martha Stewart; I’m coming for you!
Operated by Sydney blogger Steph, Raspberri Cupcakes was created to document her food experiences on the many trips she took back to her homeland, Malaysia. It’s been going since 2009 and is showing no signs of slowing down, with enough recipes to keep you going for years and years.
What I also love about this website is its humour (you know I don’t like to take life too seriously), and Steph approaches her baking and explanation of each recipe with a laidback attitude and conversational tone.
The recipes vary from basic to expert, so there’s something to cater to every skill level. I’m clearly a beginner, but I imagine if you check back with me in a few months time I’ll have submitted my application to Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules (to host or judge the contestants, of course – that’s how amazing I’ll become!).
Are you as inspired by the food styling shots in this post as I am? The macaron cake up top is honestly the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I wouldn’t even want to cut it out of fear I’d never be able to replicate its beauty again.
I’d love to hear about your adventures with baking in the comments below. Is it as addictive as I imagine it is? Drop me a line and lemme know your thoughts 🙂
