I recently saw some photos taken of a birthday party and the food items really stood out.  I remembered being able to see the icing on the cake shine in the sunlight (an outdoor, summertime party).  When my wife recently made cupcakes, I attempted to capture the detail in the icing and sprinkles, while using a low aperture to keep the cupcakes in the background out of focus.  I did some post production editing in photoshop 5.  I adjusted the color, contrast, and sharpness.  I didn't want to blur the edges at all because that would have taken away from the clarity of the closest cupcake.
