AWM Extra: Cakes

Whenever we do photo shoots for our upcoming issue, we inevitably shoot more than we could possibly fit in the pages of AWM. Some things get left on the editing floor and we just can’t stand to leave them there to gather dust. Throughout the year, we will be bringing you AWM Extras to highlight some of the bits and pieces you didn’t see in this year’s publication. Today, we will let you eat cake – or just see it at least. Our fabulous cake designers brought the goods for our tone-on-tone cake shoot last year that included a few ready-to-serve slices of yummy goodness. Take a peek for a bit of confect-spiration!
