Amy Atlas :: What goes into a dessert table...

Many of you may be following Amy Atlas and her wonderful desert table creation. She truly has great talent and has helped set a great trend in motion.

Amy Atlas on Martha Stewart: Art of Cakes II from Amy Atlas on Vimeo.

I came across this video via her blog (over a year old I think!). It shows the efforts of her and her vendors to create a gorgeous end product. (and just so happens to be one of my favourites!) 

It was quite interesting to see how Amy pulls together the talents of many others to create her creations. She may have the brains behind it, but each person adds their skills to that and it all comes together in a really cohesive way. I really appreciate that - food, graphic design, props...
I love a little "behind the scenes", don't you?


  1. So gorgeous, makes me want to eat a whole lot of sugar tho ;)

  2. I checked that video out this morning as well and yes I thought it was great - does that mean she doesn't own all of those platters and vessels she hires them every time???

  3. Leanne, it sounds like she does! I've also seen on Martha Stewart they have their own 'prop store' where items are catalogued and checked in and out for photo shoots.
    I can imagine it would take up a lot of room to house a wide collection of vessels! Imagine "shopping" for your props like that...Fun! :)

  4. Oooh thanks for sharing!! I loved watching it & seeing the inner workings of such a creative lady :)
