God. There are so many of these things, I can actually start doing themed editions.
On that note:
WELCOME TO THE: Food photography blunders 4: "That literally looks like poo" edition.
So we're back a few years when "any surface will do" when it came to food photography. This was my first attempt at low fat chocolate moouse, a mistake (or a moussetake if you will) I will never make again. Not only did this picture come out as well as sticking my phone down a used toilet, but it tasted about as good as well.
I still put this on my blog when I first started it up. So there's that.
I just love these cookies. Go one, scroll back up, and have another look. I'll wait. It's just so good. You can give each one a little personality and back-story. For instance, the giant guy straddling a lumpy headless dinosaur. I imagine he would name his dinosaur Stanley. Don't blame me, Stan's head
For the rest of the cookies though, I appear to have baked the source of all children's nightmares.
Sweet dreams kid.
Well, you're making truffles, and you've decided to step-by-step the process. What looks better than rolling that dark lumpy dough around, in what looks like, a mixture of sand and tiny bits of toilet paper.
Yep, that looks tasty. Doesn't resemble used cat litter at all. GOOD JOB EM.
You may not be thinking these look to bad. Maybe you do. The main thing is I took these to a party. The main feedback I got on them?
"Oh yeah, they're a little dry. And they make me think of assholes."
Great. Wasn't my first thought, but thanks. Maybe I'll call them Doughbutts.
So you're halfway through eating your pudding and you think "ooh I just started a blog, better take a picture of this" So you stop, and take 20 identical blurry pictures, edit 4, crop them, place your logo over the half eaten part and say to yourself "That is good. That is really good. I'm posting this"
Welcome to Fork & Good, folks.
Nothing says "good enough for the blog" like a thumb in the way and a battery just randomly in shot. If you think this was a one off, you'd be wrong, there were 16 versions of this, and this was literally the best one I could use. But it's cool though, cause you know, sprinkles and shit. Oh that icing? Was light brown. Why it appears pink I have no idea. Magic, I guess.
