No Faking It

When people find out I'm a food stylist, the first question they always ask me is about how I fake it. They want to know all about the secret tricks I use to make everything "just so", and I think they're a little disappointed when they find out that there really aren't any. Sure, I carry fake rubber ice in my kit (not only does it float; it bounces!), but aside from that the food I prepare for photo and video shoots is not very different from the food I make at home, and at the end of the day pretty much all of it gets eaten.

 Ok, the ice is fake.
