Boar’s Head Red Velvet Cake

Yes you read correctly.  A red velvet cake made into the shape of a boar’s head.  This was one tremendously fun shoot for Rob Brinkley at FD Luxe Magazine.  Conceived and styled by the one and only Jimmie Hensley.  

Not a typical food shot, but I decided to include it in my blog because it was fun and simply wanted to share this with you all.

We love how Jimmie mixes it all up here, a $17,000. Hermes folding bench, a $5,000. Ralph Lauren stag punchbowl to hold the McDonald’s french fries, and the amazing cake by Lauren of Fancy Cakes. The cake was all real!  Fondant on the outside of course and delicious red velvet inside. Served with veggies made with fondant as well.

I did not include the picture of the boar’s head cake sliced open because it didn’t look very appetizing. Tasted like red velvet, but not a pretty shot.  :-(

The mostly overcast day was perfect for the shoot!  I am lucky that way.  Just a few fill cards here and there. The main shot was done with camera on tripod, later I walked around with my camera hand held.

I hope you like the change of pace.

Hi there!

I love your site and thought you may be
interested in writing a post for a client of
mine for "The American Farmers Network", they promote natural and organic foods

but mainly beef. Here's their site http://www.americanfarmersnetwork.com

The post is general in nature so you can have
fun with it and be creative.

The job would include writing a short post
(300 words long) with a couple of links. let
me know if this sounds good and I can send
over the links and anchor text.

If you don't want to write the post but are
happy to host it let me know as I can arrange
to have the post written. Also if you have a
lot of sites you can post to we have many
relevant subjects to write and or post about.
