Default Raspberry sponge

Picked up photography about a year ago to supply my company website with image material of my work. This is an image of some sponge cakes I baked recently. Constructive criticism is more than welcome!

I wonder- perhaps try a similar shot with a varying depths of field and compare them.
This image has a vary shallow DOF- and whilst many like that- I'd favour slightly more of the cake in focus...
I like the background- with nice contrasting colour- and avoiding looking too "studio" like...
The cake looks tasty...

As an "ad photo," I think it is sub-optimal. The focus of the photo is on the raspberries -- and you didn't bake them! Compositionally, I would think that you would want something that would emphasize the yumminess of the cake, and include the raspberries as "the cherry on top," as it were, that suggests the all-naturalness of the product.

I have to say this is a GREAT photo but the raspberries really steal the show here. The colors are amazing! The picture however looks a bit grainy, maybe try using different settings and shooting a wider angle, this would make this an even better picture!
