I LOVE looking at cakes on Flickr but I am search engine challenged so I can't usually find good stuff just by searching. I was wondering if anyone could suggest photostreams of amazing cakes and cookies so i don't spend half my time sifting through the searches I do.

I could just look at those pictures for days and days. icon_eek.gif

TIA! icon_biggrin.gif

I love it too! Such amazing talent out there. The first one I can think of that has tons of amazing cakes is www.rosebudcakes.com Their flickr stream link is right at the bottom of their homepage. Another one that doesn't have a flickr but does has a large gallery of stunning cakes is www.cakelava.com For cupcakes try www.sugarbloomcupcakes.blogspot.com
And if you'd like you go to mine too www.distinctivecakes.com
Hope this helps!

What is a photo stream?
I tried doing a search on google, but found nothing telling me what it is. I tried a couple of those links, and they just look like pictures in a grid pattern on a page to me. Are they supposed to move or something?
(I do pretty well on the internet for an old lady, but sometimes I get a bit lost.)

I've been lurking in the background just waiting to pounce on any websites and FLICKR photostreams that come up in this thread icon_redface.gif . I'm unfortunately unable to add anything to the discussion icon_sad.gif , but I just couldn't resist the opportunity to thank all of you icon_biggrin.gif for the incredibly valuable information you're passing along. I'm pretty computer-literate, but I've only recently started using sites like FLICKR and YouTube, so like I say, thank you, thank you, thank you for all of this while I try to learn how to do it myself thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif .

wow!!!! I am so amazed by the wonderful pictures! What I like about Flickr is it's not only about the cakes but how it's presented and the picture-taking skills. I wish I could take pictures like that.

*sigh*

I am in cake porn heaven, the best kind of food porn ever!

Hi all!!!

Thank you so much do doing this thread. In the past I have had a hard time finding my way around Flickr. But, NO MORE. I am good to go now.

I do think my husband will need to look into hiring a maid.... cause I don't think I will be getting anything done for a while!!!

I completely understand, my husband got me a Mac with the big flat screen for xmas and now he's seriously regretting it! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif
He comes home from work yells "She's at the shrine again!"
I also had a hard time navigating flickr at first. I like how international it is, and the content on cakes is limitless, more than I'll ever get thru!

I am laughing crying! That comment from SHogg has me rolling on the floor and tears streaming down my face! My husband isn't laughing, as I'm addicted to CC . Every chance I get, I try to be on to read, learn, ooh and aahh over everyone's talents; this is better than a night out!

Thank you ALL so much for the joy you bring! icon_smile.gif

Oh, my husband said there needs to be a support group for them! icon_wink.gificon_smile.gif

Thanks so much for this! I am delighted to know where to go to see ALL the great cake photos out there. I'm not a great "searcher" on the web, so I used to try to find cake photo galleries with very little success. Now you guys have put it all at my fingertips. Great...another website to be addicted to. icon_rolleyes.gif
