Things are getting serious here at Cake with a View.
Three cheers for the incredible Graham Gaw, who hauled Mr. Kipling cakes up two munros, resulting in truly awe and appetite inspiring photos. Extra points for hiking with a big dinner plate!
Graham reports that this first photo was taken 500m up the southern slope of Beinn Tulaichean deep in the Trossachs National Park. On the horizon stands Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) and Stuc a’ Chroin.
“Peering past the mini tower of trembling Battenbergs you can see Loch Voil in the distance and Loch Doine being the smaller loch closest to us. More importantly though is the group of buildings near the road down the right hand side of the photo, for amongst these houses once stood Rob Roy’s house. Rob Roy Macgregor was a famous Scottish outlaw who often stole cattle and hid them in this very glen – a truly beautiful place.”
Next, Graham shot these “fantastically squidgy, and partially melted” French Fancies while perched on the summit cairn of Cruach Ardrain, 1046m above sea level! The view is northwest up Strath Fillan over Crianlarich and beyond.
I think Graham has certainly raised the bar, but you don’t have to climb a mountain with your cake to capture a great photo to send to me. Just take your cakes out into the world and get photographing!
