In the last 4 weeks, I’ve been notified 3 times that 3 different people have taken my photos of my cakes and are posting them and claiming they are their work. I admit, I used to never watermark my photos, but what makes someone do this? I guess I just don’t understand the motivation behind it. One lady had made beautiful cakes in the past, then she posted one of my photos and watermarked it as her own?? I believe she was more than capable of recreating it herself! I’ve seen many recreate the same cake, which I find completely flattering since it was my own original design. I just don’t get it! I one time posted a picture of a winning State Fair cake and made it very clear that I didn’t make it. I still had two people tell me I did a great job, so I removed it! I don’t ever want credit for any work that’s not my own. Seriously, what’s wrong with people these days! SMH…………….
