I’m sure many of us have Pinterest accounts – in fact I have three, two of them business accounts, with thousands of pins! Did you know though, that you can see what has been pinned from your website as well? You log into Pinterest as you...

Copyright Question...

Do you think its a copyright infringement if I do a replica of a car as a cake topper? I feel like it may be, but its not as if Volkswagen or BMW are selling kids party paraphernalia like Disney does…

Future Pricing...

I have a question abut pricing thats been bugging me for a while and this is the perfect place to get answers. I get many of my wedding cake and/or cupcake orders a year or more in advance, and once the initial chatting and meeting is over I...
