I’ve always said that I need a friend who is a massage therapist, one who cooks gourmet meals, and one who makes delicious cakes. Well, I can finally cross that last one off of my list thanks to my dear friend, Chelsea. After years of baking cakes for friends’ birthdays and hearing them say, “You should really open your own bakery,” she is finally doing it and is opening Tin Box Bake Shop here in Seattle.
I have photographed Chelsea and her beautiful family many times (her daughter is the same age as my daughter), so when she asked me if I would be interested in coming to her house and photographing cakes, it was a no-brainer. I mean, come ON! Taking photos of my friends is one of my favorite things to do, but photographing cakes is well…icing on the cake. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
I tasted almost all of the cakes we photographed (lucky me!) and I can attest to the fact that Chelsea’s cakes are not only beautiful, they are delicious. Like ridiculously delicious. Seattleites, if you would like to order a cake for an upcoming event, Chelsea is your gal.
Here’s a little sneak peek of the photos I took for Chelsea’s website. Prepare to drool…
