There are thousands of beautiful and unique cakes here. What are the rules? Can cakes be replicated by someone else?
imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -- or so I've been told
many will say -- OH i'd be sooooooooooo thrilled if someone thought my cake worthy of copying.
good manners do advise to
always give credit where credit is due.....
or as we English teacher types are always crabbing about: "cite your sources!!!!!"
so do recognize who inspired you when you post or talk about your cake.
it never hurts to say:
mother, may I
before copying either.
