For this shot, I decided to make the cheesecake more of a work of art, like a painting, as how they used to do it in the renaissance with natural sunlight from the side. I had visions of seeing it as a print in kitchens or sweet-shops maybe. Having a harsh sidelight to it was what made it for me plus the dripping sauce made of traditional arabic dates. The green backdrop was my idea to give it also a modern art-piece playing with colours that fit and complement each other.
