Cinnamon coffee cake

Post by Duck » Thu Jul 19, 2018 5:06 am

I'm trying to land a new client who runs a small mail order bakery (rum cakes) down the street from me. It's a husband and wife team. Their website is horrendous and the photos look obviously amateurish (cell phone quality). I wish I knew a good web designer to tackle that aspect of the job, but I'll just concentrate on their images. I created this to show them what can be done with the proper equipment and knowledge. I'm hoping to talk with them on Friday.

If they don't hire you they are short-sighted. (OK)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Did you bake that? I need to show it to the bride. She makes an extraordinary sour cream coffee cake that is the family and neighborhood favorite. This might come in a close second; what's the recipe?

Thanks for all the comments guys. I appreciate you taking interest.

Unfortunately I was not the creator of this delectable baked good. I prefer to do more cooking than baking and would find myself comfortable preparing the first or second course rather than the last. :D

The cake came from BJ's (mega bulk store for those unfamiliar with the franchise). I originally wanted to buy one of the rum cakes but each time I went to their bakery it was closed. They seem to have very weird hours of operation (Fri. and Sat.) implying this may be a secondary income business rather than their principal one. This was the next best thing.

I can attest that for a big box store, this was a very tasty cake. I just finished a piece with a scoop of ice cream. :thumbup:
