The other day, I went to Amber’s house to do another Sweetpea Darlingheart cake shoot! I was so pleased when she told me that she’s already booked five wedding cakes from Love Katie + Sarah readers since I posted the first shoot. You guys!
This time, Amber had made so many more cakes. She’d been baking for days and I basically got diabetes the moment I stepped into her kitchen. It was cake heaven! Don’t judge me, but I had to do everything – EVERYTHING – in my power not to, well, drool on them as I shot from above. The sweet smell of the icing, the decadent textures, the toppings…I honestly had to pretend they were fake just to get through it. It was all at once the most fun and most torturous thing I’ve ever done.
The two of us had so much fun styling each cake to give it its own little personality. Some of Amber’s most interesting cakes flavours include Pear and Maple, Honey Chai and Kaffir Lime and Lychee (lucky you didn’t judge me, because I bet you are drooling a little bit now as well!).
You can imagine my total and utter delight, when at the end of the day, Amber cut a piece out of every single cake, and sent me on my way.
I’m not ashamed to admit I made it approximately 50 metres down the street before I had one of those totally pure, human, religious cake experiences where I pulled into a shoulder of the road and STUFFED MY FACE.
And in the midst of the crazy Friday peak hour traffic, I was every bit better for it.
Love Sarah xo

PPS – Amber has started a Sweetpea Darlingheart blog with her photography, words and recipes, and (as you would expect) it’s nothing short of absolutely beautiful and 100% addictive.
