What a huge improvement! It looked so much better than the first one. Good job!


Front page - The R in round should be in lower case

Flavors - Typo on "choice"

Prices - Is an intricate gumpaste figure and a really easy one priced the same?

About me - A few typos

Good luck with your business.

I see you are canadian. The canadian spelling is flavour. Other than the typos looks great, big improvement!

Typo on home page ... traditional, not traditionsal.
Typo on flavors page ... lemon is listed twice in flavors.

Good job!

Are you sure you are charging enough for your area? I would scoop out local bakeries and see. I would definetly raise the figure pricing. I just made 16 little stingray figures with mini graduation caps and I would want to charge so much more for small duplitcae items and a ton more for single items with more detail or that are bigger. There was a gal in here who charged 5 bucks a peice for garden figures(they did have multiple colors and total detail but were small for cupcakes) and the customer happily paid her and tipped her an extra $20 if I remember correctly.

I think you meant to say "I'm self taught" instead of "I've self taught". Cheers!

Sorry, maybe I am being picky but do you bake and decorate all your cakes in 24 hours?

I only ask due to the fact that on your website you state under FAQ


There is not cancellation fee, however, if you put a deposit on a cake $75 or over, and cancelled 24 hours or less from the pick up date, you will lose the deposit.

Surely if you have already baked the cake and started decorating it you are entitled to retain the deposit at least.



Am I required to give a deposit?

Only on cakes $75 and over. The deposit is 50% of your price. This is to try and stop last minute cancellations.

I would remove the last sentance. You are almost giving people permission to cancel a cake on you. So if they order a $65 cake no deposit, no pickup and you gain nothing from it.

I havent said any of this to try an offend you so please take this as constructive advise from a fellow CC.

on the prices page, under cupcake cake, you spelled piece wrong - you have it peice.

Also, why is a cupcake cake $1 per cupcake basically and individual cupcakes are $1.50? Do you find doing a cupcake cake easier and less time consuming so you are charging less for the labor? Aren't they basically getting the same thing?

actually i do find the cupcake cakes easier. the icing gets smoothed on instead of having to do the perfect swirls on each icon_smile.gif

cake-diva1986 - whilst I agree that getting the perfect swirl is sometimes more difficult to achieve at times YOUR CUSTOMERS DONT KNOW THAT.

Whilst I have never done a cupcake cake, when I look at some that CC have done I think they would be more difficult to do.

You take all those cupcakes, form them into a pattern, 'glue' them down to stop them sliding everywhere, smooth icing over the top, then decorate! Whew!

For a cupcake, either smooth or swirl icing and then 'plonk' on a decoration. No disrespect intended anyone - even I have had cupcakes that take ages to do.

I understand what you are saying. I think im just getting used to my skills. Everyone around me says they are good enough, I just have to get used to the idea!

That's the thing... you are trying to establish your business persona, and if you start out with these rock bottom prices, you will have a hard time rasing them later. Step back... figure out what you need to charge to make this well worth your time... and that should be your pricing. icon_smile.gif
