A few people have pointed out that I haven’t done a RegularRandom with something sweet in a very long time, and they’re right! So, today is the day.

A quick look at the rules:

A quick recap of the #RegularRandom rules:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

As promised, chocolate cake. This is Caprese Cake, which is a chocolate and orange torte, layered with a chocolate cream and coated with a delicious crumb around the sides. It was amazing.

Let me set the scene.

This is my kitchen table. I picked up the vase recently, as I wanted something to display this pretty little felt ball posey.

After these long shots, I got in close. All the photos in this post were taken with my 30mm macro lens.

Now, there may or may not have been some “interference” with the subject at this point. I mean, there’s a cup of tea, a fork, what’s a girl to do?!

Could you resist?

  1. A girl has to do what a girl has to do! The cake looks luscious but I love that plate, Desley. OK, so I tried doing this this evening–take photos for 5 minutes. I photographed some pound cakes I had just baked (we were on the same food wavelength!), but mine turned out total crap. So I had to eat them and then start again…..I will keep trying.

    1. Hahaha oh dear Lois. I’m sure they weren’t that bad! I’m so glad we were on the same page. I bet they were delicious! This cake was. Thanks so much. Oh the plate is Marie Claire. I got a set of 4 when they were clearing them out. I use them every day.


  2. I’m wondering how you could have waited for so long to eat this luscious cake! These are explicit nude cake scenes, food porn shots, and one can almost feel the softness and taste of the cake.
    If we were having coffee…you wouldn’t have shot anything because I would have devoured the cake while you prepared the tea.

    1. LOL. I don’t understand your comment. Not a fan of chocolate cake? 😂 Sorry Su, thank you, so much. Yes I love the plate too. It’s one of a set of four from Marie Claire, got them on sale and use them every day for even mundane things like toast 😊😊

      1. I like chocolate. And I like cake. I’m just not crazy about putting them together. Carrot cake, christmas cake, banana cake with coffee icing …. drool.
        But seriously; I think even mundane food deserves beautiful plates. If it’s good enough to eat, it’s good enough to eat off something lovely.
