How do you all do a background for a professional looking cake photo without having it look like drapped fabric? I want pastel type colors for the background of my cakes for my website.

I just started to use the tri fold boards that kids use for science fair projects. I just use white, but I think they come in colors too.

Try using a big canvas (stretched). You can then paint it with whatever color you want. You can even change it if you want. Oh and you can also staple fabric on it.

Seems to me that what you are refering to is a background, sort of what you see in the photos in Bakerella. If that is the case, you need to use a program like Photoshop that will let you alter the background of the picture. Hope that helps.

I use one of the trifold boards and put it on the table. Then I drape a large piece of black fabric over the board and onto the table. I stick the cake on top of the fabric and take the picture. You can use any colour fabric that you wish of course. It doesn't looked draped when I am done.
