OK, so this is a rant of sorts, but this kind of this infuriates me!
If you use another cake decorators cake as inspiration, or hell, if you blatantly copy it, would it really kill people to at least acknowledge that they’ve done so? A quick note to say that you were inspired by ‘such and such’ is all that is required.
There is nothing wrong with using other designs as inspiration, or even replicating cakes you’ve seen and I do understand that sometimes we can’t remember who’s cake it was that we used for inspiration, but even when that does happen, at least say that it was inspired by another cake but you can’t remember – you would be surprised how many people will already know where you got the inspiration from and can help you find the person. The cake community is pretty close knit and we are all familiar with each others work, so do the right thing and give credit where credit is due!
OK, I shall dismount my high horse now! ;)
