Tiffany's Sweet Spot // La Quinta, CA

I’m fairly certain that when I walked into Tiffany’s bakery with two pieces of 98 cent poster board from Walmart and a sprig of bougainvillea I picked from her neighbor’s storefront, and began photographing her beautiful cake, she thought I was bonkers. After all, she was on Cupcake Wars, and can obviously decorate a cake in flawless style.

But the 90’s hot pink vibes, the cutest unicorn cake, rainbow sprinkles haphazardly tossed for flair, and some random bougainvillea can really surprise you sometimes at how cute they can be together.

You really don’t need anything fancy to create the kind of images you want. It’s just how you use what you have that can make something amazing.
