Nothing is more pleasurable after a good meal than...... Chocolate cake! ~Bon Appétit

I mean a thick slice of fresh chocolate cake! A 5'' inch high slice of cake, a fat thick 5 inch layered slice of chocolate cake topped off with chocolate flakes.

                                         Enter the star of this shoot:  BindiUSA Desserts!

                                                 Next up was the Red Velvet cake:

Heaven's and the powers that be managed to fill up two (2) refrigerators with there new selections for the Summer of 2013....  All I can say is stay away if you have a problem with sweets, stay away if you have no control.  I spent 12 hours working with chef Michael Giletto * (my food stylist on and great friend) where he had to re-create the most perfect cuts of cake, making sure that every morsel of the chocolate flakes were perfectly laid out, double checking that each and every pistachio nut or sugar was positioned correctly to balance out our feature cover image while our client eagerly watched as we worked on each aspect of sets to get what we all needed. 

To be drooling from the lip, deciding in our minds where to cut the chocolate cake and how large of a slice we want…. Some of the images are posted here and others can be viewed at:
