Don't ya hate it when you spend HOURS on a cake... load it onto CC and then hardly anyone looks at it!!! d'oh! I was so pleased how it turned out... now I'm not so sure!... maybe it just got flicked off the front page too quickly??

If anyone has any spare time... do you mind looking/critiquing???
it's the dorothy dinosaur one.

Thanks heaps...

Just checked it out (along with all of your other creations), and WOW!! It looks great. You have alot of talent. Don't feel so bad. I work on cakes for a long time and think that they look wonderful, then when I look on here at some of the other talent, I then start to doubt myself. I think you did an outstanding job on Dorothy. My youngest liked your Elmo and Cookie Monster cakes (he'll be 2 in 3 weeks). icon_lol.gif

paolacaracas: I can't imagine your cakes ever NOT being on the home page somewhere!!!! I have several of your cakes in my favs. I think your work is amazing!!!! I only wish I had a 10th of your talent. Great job. thumbs_up.gif

thanks guys!! ur all soooo nice! I reckon they need to put a loop or something in the script that leaves newest photos up for a minimum of 10 minutes or something... photos disappear too quickly off the front page... don't u think?? or maybe make more preview panes so that there is double the amount showing - maybe smaller thumbnails??

thank you all for taking the time to check her out...

I can SOOOOO relate. I guess there were so many downloads, that I didn't even see my Halloween cake on the homepage. I spent so much time, and then was so pleased...and then, nothing. Oh well, maybe the next time. Your cake is fantastic!

I hate that too.... but it happens.... I needed some ideas for cupcakes and nobody has responded. icon_sad.gif

But your cake came out great! I think you did an awesome job. I also viewed some of your other cakes and you're very talented!! Keep up the good work

In my humble opinion, I think photos are not placed on the home page by popularity, unless they are listed under All Time Popular Cakes or in the Popular Cakes Added Today section. It is a matter of hit and miss, when you upload, how fast you machine hits the CC server and so on. I have said before, I dont think anyone is sitting at a computer monitor "judging" our posted pictures and selecting which goes where and when... if you upload when 10 other people upload, chances are your picture may not make it or if it does, its bumped off to make room for others. I could be wrong and if I all means correct me. Believe you me...I'd LOVE to have my pictures last more then 15 minutes on the home

Fi, that's one cute creature, whoever she is. Great job with the fondant!

Jessica, I noticed your Indian cake right when you posted it and I commented on the incredible orchid.

Paolacaracas, I've seen many of your cakes, which are really extraordinary.

You know, I hardly look at the front page...when I sign on I go straight to the "last uploads" page. That way I don't miss anything!

Thanks everyone for sharing your lovely creations; looking at cakes made by my fellow CCers really makes my day thumbs_up.gif

We have all had pictures that didn't get posted for long. I think it is all timing and the day of the week. I too had some that I felt were good and didn't get anywhere. Keep putting them up for us. Some of the ones in all time popular have been on for years and have accumulated more and more favorites. I think yours is great.

I love your Dorothy cake Fi !! and Paolacaracas,yours was fabulous too icon_biggrin.gif

I never know the "slow " time to post photos,so my last upload disappeared before I could blink !!! icon_confused.gif

Yep, there's a button for that:

Anytime your looking at a photo the headline says "Cake Gallery" or "Cake decorating photos" and right below that there is a tab called "last uploads."

You'll miss some great stuff if you don't browse through there on a daily basis!

Your cake is super cute! I wouldn't take it personally that it took a while to get views. I uploaded a cake yesterday and checked where it was on the uploads page 10 hours later and it was on page 5. That means that in those ten hours there were approximately 280 new pictures added after mine. I can see how pictures get overlooked easily.

I so understand your disappointment. When I finisha cake I'm really proud of I my first thought is "I can't wait to post this" and then think of how my customer will like it.
I try to gage the right time to post so that many might see it & comment. Then, rather pathetically, I check the computer every chance I get for a comment. Seems I never pick a good time and always feel so let down.....
...ummm..maybe someone could take a pity peek at my "Eloise the Horse" cake.

Hey maybe that could be a new gallery section...
"Please take a Pity Peek"
"I'm having a pity party..wanna see my cake!?!"

Feefs, I think Dorothy is just too cute and spot on
(I left a comment) all your cakes look great. My fav is the dragon. OH..and your lillies are fabulous.

I'm with crazy4sugar, I go immediately to the "last uploads" everytime I log onto CC. I can honestly say that I don't pay much attention to the thumbnails on the first page.

I wonder if most people don't bother going to latest uploads. At first I was just looking at wedding cakes so I would go there. Shortly after I started to explore CC more and found latest uploads. There I can see everyones cakes without having to go to each and every category.

I go through stages: this week I'm into gumpaste flowers because I'd like to give them a try. Last week it was wedding cakes and mini cakes because I had an order for a bridal shower....

My interest changes as much as the weather. LOL.

There is a place for "under noticed cakes" which works out great for some folks because they get lost in the great CC shuffle.

Marecip, your giraffe is awesome and I really like your fishing cake (I'm from a fishing city on the coast of Massachusetts and into nautical themed stuff)!
