Shutterfly Kitchen Redesign – Pt 2

The items I showed off yesterday sure do make a huge difference in my kitchen – it makes the space much brighter, which really cheers me up while I bake.

And speaking of baking, I knew I wanted to make a couple of unique products that I could use for my cake tastings and dessert parties. I took some of my favorite images from my collection of vintage baking books and scanned the covers to replicate the glorious retro cake photographs onto serving plates.

CAke Plates

I cannot wait to have friends over for dessert and bust out these plates – I absolutely love them!  I’m thinking I’ll even DIY a cake stand out of one of them!

Cake Table

I also made a Shutterfly photo book to be used as a portfolio for my desserts and design work.  The book is beautiful – the printing came out great – the photo quality is absolutely amazing.  And it is the perfect size for me to carry along to client meetings and to display alongside dessert setups.  Plus, I was able to layout and design the book completely to my liking, which was very important for me.  My new portfolio book has already been extremely beneficial, as I’ve brought it along to a number of meetings and it is a much better (and more presentable!) alternative compared to the slideshow I used to conduct from my phone.

PS – Shutterfly is currently running a promotion – from now until September 10th you can get a free photobook with code: BOOK4FREE.
