Cookery Shoot Fun!

Finished Mirror Cake

Doesn’t this mirror glaze cake look amazing! I had a action-packed day with food stylist and home economist Kathryn Hawkins, and photographer Eddie Phillips of Lighthouse photography, as we shot the easy steps needed to create this delicious Strawberry Valentine’s Day Mirror Glaze Cake.
