Plus, this gave me an excuse to try some of the fun stuff my sister Shelby got me for Christmas. She bought be a bunch of different plates and stuff so that when I do food photography, I'll have varied displays.
I'm a completely novice with my camera and food styling in general but I'm learning. I liked this set up and of course natural light is the only way to go. Unfortunately, I'm rarely home at times where it's available. Weekends are the only savior, especially in winter!
This treat was totally delicious and reminded me of monkey bread or pull-apart bread. It might look more complicated than it is. In all honesty, I could have eaten this entire thing in one sitting if I were hungry but I did not! Instead, after taking these photos, I cut it up into about six pieces to be enjoyed seperately. I enjoy anything you can pull apart (think those yummy layered biscuits from Pillsbury!)
And this was quick. You do have to let the dough rise for at least an hour (my first attempt a failure because my liquid wasn't hot enough) but the whole process is about 1 hour and 35 minutes. I think it could have risen more...but it worked.
So I'm gonna leave with you the ingredients and instructions but you will probably want to click over from where I got them to see exactly how it's done. And, yes, you will notice mine is a bit different but do whichever feels better to you!
