If I state why… would you judge me? 🙁
To be honest….most of the time, I would photograph after 8pm and because of that I have ALWAYS used an external camera flash. *palm face*
Now that my external flash is not working, I have not been snapping pictures. I know you should not be using flash for food photography, but I genuinely can’t help it. I do not have space for lights and the set ups.
Yes, you guys can carry on and judge me…my soul is empty without my Speedlite anyways. </3
There might be some questions in your head right now. Won’t the pictures be too bright or too harsh… etc?
Well, I do not use the flare on the food itself, I simply bounce the light off the white ceiling. Although I don’t snap the best of pictures, but I guess as long I can make you feel like you want to lick your screen, I’m contented.
While the Speedlite stays at Canon for a bit, I should somehow get a pair of lights in due course.
Ok, time for something happy. Sugar always helps right? Especially if it’s dessert with a hint of salt! ♥
I love milkshakes. You know those thick, creamy types? I don’t make it often, but whenever I do, I absolutely enjoy it, especially the milk + ice cream combo.
I have realized that it is dangerous to keep a bottle of salted caramel in the fridge. There are TOO many possibilities of me wanting to make all kinds of desserts with that stuff. When we had a bottle of it in December, me and the niece ended up making this Strawberry Cheesecake with Salted Caramel ↓
There is also the occasional slathering of the salted caramel on cookies, brownies, strawberries and everything else. Everything else does not include spinach. I might be obsessed but definitely not sick. Thanks to another bottle of salted caramel in the fridge, I ended up making ↓
Salted caramel is more wicked than Cinderella’s step sisters, I tell you! But this Salted Caramel Milkshake was so delicious, therefore no regrets really #sorrybutnotsorry
You can obviously just buy ready-made caramel sauce for convenience, but making your own is really easy and it’s very cheap too. Best of all, you can curb the quantity of sugar in the caramel. I blended milk + ice cream + caramel for this milkshake and drizzled the caramel all around the glass. I finished it off with a touch of whipped cream and a little more caramel. Wouldn’t it be awesome if this was some kinda health drink? I would sip this all day long man!
Do give this salted caramel milkshake a try people. It’s creamy, It’s sweet, a little salty, and oh SO yummy! I mean, can you really go wrong with homemade salted caramel?!
This is the perfect pick-me-up that would rejuvenate and ease you through three more days of the weekdays before you can officially say TGIF!
