I’ve tried to comment or like and CD makes me sign in first so I think it only counts views and lets you comment/favorite if your signed in. Overall, I think there are definitely some artists out there that have a strong fan base and very loyal supporters and good for them because they do great work and its is most likely rightfully deserved. This thread started off as a curiousity question and certainly took a tangent onto a different topic… but thats ok. I think we should all respect eachother as cake artists and give credit where credit it due – on fabulous cakes. I try to view as many cakes as I can and comment & favorite whatever I think is exceptional work. We all work so hard and think our own cakes are great and wish they would all be top 15 or better yet top 3, but this is a site of opinions and perhaps popularity and so many cakes get loaded on a daily basis that some easily slip throught the cracks and so we can’t take the ranking system too seriously or too personally. Let’s just all focus on making our next cake better than the one before. This site is so great to draw inspiration from and also learn so much – these forums have definitely taught me a ton!
