cupcake with birthday candle and falling icing sugar

No it's not my birthday. Or anyone else's in my house. This picture is the result of a food photography workshop at Tots 100's Blogcamp  (#bcuk) in Birmingham this weekend.

We decorated the cakes then played around with props, techniques, angles, lighting and reflecting light. We hurled icing sugar and tinkered with exposures. It was LOTS of fun!
