Could anyone send me a link or tell me what brand/type of light I need? I am always struggling to get good photos of my cakes because the lighting in my house is so dim. I just bought a backdrop for my cakes & I've tried taking a photo near a window, but the cake still looks dull/colorless. I'm thinking I need some sort of standing light/lamp that shines down on the cake... what do you use?

The only place in my house to get a good picture is in my daughter room. It has big window. And in the morning when sun lights up the whole room. I put my cake a cross that big window. I am taking pictures at different angles and then choose the best picture.
