Michelle’s cake + cupcakes

Blog Post No. 1 = my friend Michelle (from Hummingbird on High) baked! And she let me photograph the aftermath. Thanks michelle!

Check out her delicate little creations. I especially like when she got crazy with the food coloring spray on the cake. Love the spray paint/tie dye effect, ya?

Her blog concept is pretty original/mad scientist/authentic. She is working through each recipe in the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook and adapting the recipes to this nutty mile-high altitude. I don’t bake. I just eat. But apparently, trying to follow baking recipes at a higher altitude here is troublesome.

Can’t wait to photograph more of her stuff! Yes, I will trade photos for food so holla if you’re making something good!

Food is our common ground, a universal experience.
-James Beard

The night I started a food blog.

I love food. I love traveling. I love eating + traveling.

Plus….I’m a photographer. This is only perfectly natural and satisfies some deep weird yearning to collect images of everything I consume so I never forget the yummy goodness I’ve experienced. In an effort to make you taste what I’ve tasted, I’ll do the second best thing and photograph it for you. Also, I may be paranoid my brain will stop making memories after 27, so this documenting via camera thing might come in handy. Here’s the disclaimer part: I will probably describe things incorrectly, make up words along the way, and have no professional cooking or food critiquing experience. Just solid eating experience. I just like to eat my face off my face. Make sense?

Either way, this is too much fun to not follow through with. Hope you enjoy!
