What are the best fabric colors and fabric textures to use as a background to photograph cakes??? Wedding Cakes? Celebration Cakes? Any tips on lighting, would also be appreciated.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

There's actually a good article in Vol 1, Issue 1 of Cake Central Magazine. I'm still no pro, but it helped me a lot!

I'm not a pro either but one thing I do know is that natural light is best. I position my cakes on a table with direct morning or afternoon light if I have time. An iPhone photo isn't bad if you have the right placement. If you're using a background, I would go with either white or black, or even a color that brings out the smallest detail in your cake.

This one was taken with my iPhone at about 8 a.m. with direct eastern light and I feel that it is one of my neatest shots. The colors look so much brighter.

A Couple of links

On this second one, unfortunately her original pics are missing, but she does have a pic on page two. And there are a few other links for light boxes....

Perhaps you can PM the original posters and see if they can send links to their box setups...
