Who hates to click on a picture to find there's no description of the cake. Women in general are detail oriented and want to know all about the cake, so it's disappointing to find no info. ( But I still like to look at the pics.) Maybe it's an issue with time-don't know. Just one of my pet peeves. icon_smile.gif

I hate that, too. I very often do not comment if there's no description. I feel like every one of my cakes has a "life" and a story to tell, and I like to share that myself.

I too wish that everyone would put some sort of description, but there are so many people on CC that don't speak or write English so I think that could be the reason they don't/can't describe the cake.

surely this is especially important in the competitions - i mean the details affect what i personally would give as stars. plus it means the comments arent all just asking how it was all done! i too just like to knwo the story - like who it was for, if it was stressful. then im not the only one!

I probably go too far in writing the description. I could write a book but I run out of room. icon_lol.gif

You are so not the only one! I'm just like that! I love to read to story about the cake. I want to know the flavor of the cake, the fillings, everything! lol I'm like the previous poster--I'm more likely to leave a comment if there's a description. Not sure why---just works that way. I guess it feels more like a conversation that way....

I think mainly....I like details...I'm very curious detective.gif (or nosey!)!!!

I am also disappointed when there is no info. I like the ones that have a story to go with it. Maybe I'm nosy, but tell me who what when why and even how long it took you to make it.

I agree, I love reading about the cakes & the work that went into them. Count me in as nosy. I think you appreciate them more when you hear the work & the details that went into them.

I love to read the story about the cake. I like to know the size flavor/filling ! I also like when there is a mini tutorial on how they did it. Sometimes its something I may be doing soon and it helps me to know how someone else did it ! There are also some really good/funny stories included with some cakes !

I was just thinking of this yesterday. I found a few cakes I want to try and have not clue as to how to start! I don't want a step by step but some description would be great! Also keywords! I have gone searching and found nothing. Gone cake by cake (for hours/days) and found just what I wanted with no keywords!!!

I guess I'm in the minority of this thread because a description or lack thereof makes no difference to me. I do appreciate keywords, though!

I also like when they share how they made important pieces of the cake that aren't obvious to the eye.

CakesbyLJ...that Mozart cake was EASY! I swear! Besides having chocolate EVERYWHERE...and I do mean everywhere (on the floor, in my hair, on the ceiling fan!), those chocolate wraps are simple to do! But your beer bottle cake????? Nope...that wasn't easy!
