Other: To encourage consumers to only use the best products when they’re baking, we created this sting for Rachel Allen's TV Show ‘Sweet Things’. The 10-second stings feature a tracking shot over a table laden with sumptuous and lusciously baked cakes and desserts, each cake is decorated with hand-cut, custom made typography. Filmed over two days with renowned food photographer David Munns, we experimented with several forms of typography and how we could recreate them on our cakes. Cup cakes are adorned with hand-cut green icing announcing how ‘Tasty’ they are, and pastry on a chopping board was dissected with a scalpel to reveal the word “ooh”. A lemon sponge cake was gently powdered with icing sugar through hand cut stencils to reveal the word that best describes the cake - ‘Luscious’ – while even more icing sugar covers our chocolate brownies. Tiny custard tarts tell us how “Yummy" they are before we finally reveal a raspberry tart featuring the Connacht Gold name, which was hand-drawn and cut from pastry before being baked carefully for the end shot.
