Foodie Friday – cruising and a chocolate lava cake photo

moist chocolate lava cake desserts on cruise ships
Chocolate lava cake with ice cream and strawberries

My 65th birthday present to myself was taking back to back, 21 day cruises in January and February of 2020. Having all my meals cooked for 41 days was heaven, especially the many tasty dessert choices. During my cruises, I would often choose to sit in the main dining room for dinner. The servers for my section would usually come over to view the photos of my plates of food and the chocolate lava cake photo with strawberries and ice cream desserts.

I found a recipe for a deliciously moist chocolate lava cake. I like this recipe because I can use the muffin pans I have rather than a ramekin as I don’t have those. My photograph makes my mouth water.

Foodie Cruise Photos – Stock Photography

This chocolate lava cake photo should sell in my portfolio as rights managed stock photography. That’s a fun project for another day.

First, I have hundreds of cruise food images to review and process. Next, I’ll name the desserts. I made sure to take photos of the names of the desserts to help my 65 year old brain memory challenges. Third, I’ll search for recipes to accompany the dessert images in upcoming blog posts. 🙂

I’m a traveler who, for many years, have loved taking foodie photos.
