Posting on Cakes Decor

Forum: Cake Decorating Business

I wasn’t actually sure which forum topic to post this under, as its not a site issue or a business issue… :D
I was swimming through my CD notifications, and there was something that seems to be the norm for most people on Cakes Decor – there is little to no description of the pictures in a post, unless it was a collaboration.
As much as I admire the work – I would LOVE to know more about the pictures!
Like, is it a dummy cake or a real cake? How big is the cake?
Is it a ginger cookie or a sugar cookie? How big is the cookie? How long did it take to decorate?
Are they royal icing, sugar paste, or wafer paper flowers? How many flowers have you made?
Or is it just me?

Heaven in paper cups!

No, it’s not just you! I always enjoy reading the journey to the final creation. It is always interesting and I do try to give at least a brief descript of each piece that I post. Good topic!

June ("Clarky's Cakes") ...

In almost every cake post I include that information Angel. I too enjoy reading how everything was made. I try for my description not be too lengthy tho. Many members don’t have time to read through or don’t want to be bothered. Many members just want to see the cake picture, and are satisfied with that.

The Garden Baker ...

In general I agree with you. I usually enjoy reading a bit more about the cakes. If it’s too long, though, then I just skim over what was written.
