When someone says Photoshop and magazine covers, our minds automatically think of supermodels airbrushed to perfection that is too good to be true. In fact, photoshopped models stir up a great wind of controversy in regards to what young girls are learning about body image. However, would a photoshopped raspberry added to a chocolate cake cause the same stir?

D Magazine editor Tim Rogers recently wrote a blog post about a photoshopped raspberry recently added to a cover photo of a chocolate cake. The thought behind the addition was that raspberries in food pictures sell more magazines. The chocolate cake on the cover from Sissy’s Southern Kitchen doesn’t come with a raspberry, but at the behest of D Magazine founder Wick Allison, it was added to the photograph of the cake.

You can see the cake and the added the raspberry on this month’s cover of D Magazine, on newsstands now or by visiting Dmagazine.com.
