Behind the Scenes: Fall Good Things, Part 1
Posted by Shira Savada
Our latest Good Things are chock-full of ideas, but there's only so much we can fit on a page, and sometimes we have to cut things out. The nice thing about the Web, is there's unlimited space, so we can share those additional ideas with you here. Below is a little gallery of behind-the-scenes snapshots of the edible Good Things we worked on for our Fall issue. Even farther down you'll find the final idea that we had to cut. Enjoy!
1 Meetings are always better with snacks. Kristina brought some dipping options for our fondue idea, and we picked our faves. We also looked at cookie shapes for our cider idea.
2 The shortbread cookies under a delicate dusting of powdered sugar.
3 Here's a tray that shows different shape options and some undusted cookies too.
4 Kristina (our food editor) pouring the hot cider into the glasses.
5 Kristina's cart of cookies and cranberry garnishes.
6 The cider and cookies during development.
7 An aerial shot.
8 And another angle. We do this to see how the cookies and drink will look when we shoot from different perspectives.
The idea here was that as guests arrive prior to the ceremony, they are given a glass of hot cider and seasonally flavored shortbread cookies. We tried it with and without a garnish of sugared cranberries on a stir stick, and shot it from two angles.
