Springtime Cupcakes, Flowers and Gratuitous Photographs!

Hi Everyone
Some gratuitous photos today – but how can you go wrong with some Springtime Cupcakes and Cosmo Cricket!!
I have really been trying to improve on my photography and having seen a few manufacturers request submissions with projects photographed on a white background – I decided to give it a go.
I have made the cupcake toppers and flowers using the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection. These flowers are super simple to make – why not check out the tutorial on how to make them here!

You can see my tutorial on how to make the embossed icing on top of the cupcakes here.

I really think these photos are WAY over-edited but I couldn’t figure out how to balance everything right – so now I not ONLY need to work on my photography – but I need to learn more about editing too!
I have taken all of these outside but the light this time of year (approaching winter) is SO different to how it was all summer – so now I need to learn about lighting conditions too!
These pictures show the same flowers against different backgrounds – it’s amazing how different they look depending on what is behind them
Same with the cupcakes.  So much to learn and so little time!
Anyway – we have heaps of birthdays coming up in our family – so there might be more cupcakes to come. Check out this post here for a template for the cupcakes plus some ideas for a boys birthday party.

Would love to hear your feedback on the photos PLUS any easy to understand hints on improving my pictures
