This is a home baked sponge cooling on a rack before being made into a delicious cake, perhaps a lovely Victoria Sponge.
I love the natural textures in this image, the sponge texture draws the eye and is complimented by the rustic wooden surface. I also love the lighting here, something about the mood that conveys the whole atmosphere of home baking, and just look how the focus picks out that crumb, delicious!
I wanted this image ‘Home Baked Sponge for Cake’ to look like it was photographed in a warm, rustic farmhouse setting. To create the mood for this photo window light was carefully introduced to illuminate the sponge from the back.
