Howdy, y’all! Cafe Munchkin, as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, was chosen to receive a free Kodak Gallery Photo Book. I love love love photo books, more so when they are gratis. *wink* Thank you, Kodak Gallery! Thank you, Foodbuzz! I knew right away what my photo book was going to be about…my cakes…my fondant cakes. I’ve always wanted to have a hard copy of what I’ve created thus far. This opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time! I finished creating my photo book just a few minutes ago. For now, I can only show you screen shots of what I will be receiving in the mail a few days from today.
It took me longer than I expected it would take to create the photo book because only two days ago did I realize that between May 2009 and August 2011, I have so far created 40 – FORTY! – fondant cakes! If I add the non-fondant cakes, cupcakes, brownies and cookies…that’s a ton of baked goodies out of my kitchen! Whew!
I made sure I included photos of my “class cakes”, all of which are on the first page. I can now laugh about the fact that my very first fondant cake turned out to be a horrible horrible mess. It took a lot not to cry in class! I have since learned how to deal with cake-decorating problems. Talk about growing up!
If you find creating photo books too daunting a task, you can opt to do the Quick Start and just allow Kodak Gallery to auto-fill the pages chronologically. You will still be able to resize, move and rotate the photos. I, on the other hand, took the Step-by-Step route. I like having full control. Hee hee. Oh, and guess what, you can upload photos from your Facebook account!
In the book are a good number of cakes that I have done recently, which I have yet to blog about. The cake on the photo book cover is one of them. I won’t show you the others just yet. I will tell you about them really really soon!
Do you want to make a photo book as well, perhaps about your wonderful summer? Well then, you’re in luck! Kodak Gallery is extending an exclusive offer to you of 40% off a Medium Hardcover Photo Book! Just CLICK THIS LINK and you’ll be on your way to creating your own beautiful book of memories. Take note, however, that this offer is valid until August 31st only.
Have a wonderful weekend, y’all! I most definitely will because it’s Tax Free Weekend! Cheers and mabuhay! :D
