My brother and I are in the process of planning our Mother's 60th birthday party. And honestly, what's a party without cake. The process for designing a cake is very similar to graphic design. Of course you have to figure out colors, style, layers, mix and match of textures... blah blah blah.
Design aside, the photography is just as important when showcasing your cake creations. Food photography is a booming business. Think of all of the restaurants, cuisine chefs, pastry chefs etc. that rely on excellent photography to showcase their talent.
What I'm learning is food photography is all about (of course food presentation) but more importantly angles and lighting. Stay posted I'll be writing something soon on food photography. In the meantime, posted below are some really cool cake designs I've found around the net.
