S’mores Magazine Shoot

S’mores Bar by Amy Atlas.  Photograph by Antonis Achilleos.  Scroll below for behind the scenes pics….

Hey folks, We’re so busy prepping for our book shoot {we start shooting in a couple of weeks!}, but I thought I’d leave you with a little inspiration that we created recently for a magazine shoot.  Even though it is freezing in New York, I think our s’mores bar above would make anyone excited for a camping trip.  For this shoot, we used tree trunks and natural wood as the dessert vessels to create a camping vibe.  We made gooey marshmallow treats like S’mores cupcakes (get the look by using a kitchen torch with marshmallow meringue frosting), s’mores mousse shots, homemade mallomars, and fluffernut chocolate chip sandwiches {see pictures below}. We also included some delicious chocolate from Vosges Haut Chocolat, mushroom chocolate truffles, and chocolate bark.  We cut chalkboard and burlap tags with pinking shears for s’mores dessert tags. Want some fun ideas for s’mores toppings?  Swap out traditional graham crackers for homemade chocolate chip cookies or sandwich your marshmallows with nilla wafers.  You can also include some healthy toppings for your s’mores bar like granola and fruit.  Summer can’t come soon enough…

They are so much more affordable than the aboriginal ones and even if you have the standard of value, you could very well save it and spend it on a vacation or a new car, or even buy yourself more horologue models and makers. On the other palm and fingers, the peculiarity horizontal of today’s low-priced A Lange Sohne Replicas is due. The copying is done at such a level that for example, the compact engravings or the qualities of the magnifying time glass are copied to excellence.
