I am trying to get decent photos of my cakes that don't have my counter or my horrible backyard in them. I am hiring a photographer to take pictures for me but I don't know what backdrop I should use. I tried using the piece of fabric trick but I just don't like the way those photos came out. I'm thinking since we live in Florida I can take them to the beach. It's a gorgeous backdrop for any photos. What do you think?

I am by no means a professional, but I have struggled with this also. Lately I have been using Large Foam Core Sheets, (I get at the dollar store, they come in different colors) for my backdrop. Since the cake is the focus, I keep the backdrop plain. I use 2 sheets, one on my kitchen table and I place my cake on top, and the other at the back of the cake. It's cheap and easy, and you can't tell that the pics were taken in my kitchen.  

I like your beach idea, but driving my cakes out to the beach is not practical in for me.

I use different colors of sheets, tablecloth, curtains..  Anything with a nice plain pattern that I find at thrift shops, garage sales etc.   I find it works great!..  I'm not a professional (photographer or decorator).. And prefer not to drag the cakes around for my cake photo shoots..

You should really do it according to the feeling/theme of the cake. I'm assuming all your cakes are not beachy/beach related. You might have baby shower cakes that need cutesy backdrops too.

There are people who sell backdrops for cakes.
