    This is funny,I love the way you put those cupcakes on top of a pan. Is that a pan to make popcorn ?
    This photo has sharp details and beautiful light

    love it.

    Red of the papercups gives a boost of energy to the image. The caramel colors and off-whites are beautiful. Somehow I like the metal, too.

    As a quick shot, it is a fun idea. It leads to think that the popcorn and cupcakes are to be carried somewhere else, maybe to another room. It also gives out an impression that you have sooo many cupcakes that they are everywhere, literally. Or, you've secured five cupcakes before your partner snatches them :-).

    nice capture Xiaolu. the lighting, are they came out from a window lighting and reflector ?

    Fantastic looking cupcakes and I agree with Laksmi about the red cupcake liners. Great light on the cakes, and nice focus.

    I love that you put cupcakes on top of the pan. I never thought taht's a pan until I look very detailly. You make it so different!

    Thanks, everyone!

    Laksmi This recipe made quite a few more cupcakes than I was expecting and I admit my kitchen gets pretty messy whenever I bake, so there were practically cupcakes and other sweet things everywhere :).
    Rifda Yanti Yes, I used window light coming from slightly upper right and white boards on the left and below to bounce light back. Hope that helps :).

    What a fun and creative image. It makes me think that more cupcakes are going to pop out of the popcorn maker. And the red and white cupcake liners remind me of the boxes of popcorn you buy at the movies.

    Fun and surprising idea! Cold metal grey and warm caramel tones, creamy toping and red stripes – perfect combination. Love this picture!
