Sorry if this has been asked before but I couldn't find an answer when I searched. I was wondering what is the best way to set up to take great pictures of cakes?

Thank you! icon_rolleyes.gif

I think most important thing is the background. Taking photos with your kitchen in the background or the cake sitting on the washing machine makes a very unattractive photo! You can create an inexpensive backdrop by taking two pieces of foam board, cover in white material and tape together to create a hinged backdrop you can adjust around the cake. You can use different colors of material draped over the backdrop to create different effects and match the color of the cake. Second thing is the lighting - try to avoid shadows. Third, a good camera helps!
