Thank you to everyone for submitting a topic suggestion! There were some close contenders, but we ultimately chose: The Seven Deadly Sins, by Francis Yao! We think that this topic will be incredibly fun to do. However, tackling all seven sins would prove to be too challenging and this topic is just too fun to pick only one. We have both decided to do two sins each, one chosen by the other and the second as our own pick.

Now, back to this week’s topic: Texture.

“Textures come in all shapes and sizes. It is trees to a hillside, tread to a tire, or feathers to a bird. But when we zoom in a bit closer, we notice that some of the craziest landscapes are etched into common fruit. I planned this shot both as an interesting subject and as a tasty lunch.” –B

Photography has always been a passion of mine but so has baking. I’m more of a pie and cupcake kind of girl but occasionally I’ll try and tackle a cake. One of my fun aspirations for the distant future is to open up a cupcake shop once I retire from nursing (here’s to hoping!) One of the most important things about dessert, specifically cake, is the texture. I love incorporating different elements to any dessert; the moistness of the cake, the fluffy creaminess of the frosting, and the occasional sprinkle of fun.

Our sins for next week:

Brent: Envy and Gluttony

Mandy: Wrath and Gluttony

I think we may have mistaken this week for gluttony…
